Value For Money : Poor
This is a faithful reproduction of the SG as it was made at the beginning, with its qualities ... and weaknesses.
An extremely ergonomic, light, and endearing!

UTILIZATION

Game extremely enjoyable, easy, fast. A must! This guitar is primarily a HANDLE with just the right accessories around to be played (a body reduced to the minimum subsistence, microphones, buttons.)

Incredibly ergonomic handle: large, flat, with access to acute total.

The downside: it handles very end remains relatively flexible, it requires adjustment pulling / truss-rod very accurate. More Kluson mechanics are not the most fables are. There need to consider periodic re-tuning the guitar during the "stoppage".
This phenomenon is quite evident on new guitar, will tend to decline gradually as the wood will age and get used to the guitarist's instrument. In all cases it takes time.

Difficult to give a rating because it has both the ultimate ... but with its well-known weaknesses. A bit like a vintage car: it's beautiful, it's class, but it demands attention and settings. Come on, I will anyway because 10 of the most far outweigh the less.

SOUNDS

The PAF neck pickup 57 is perfectly adapted to the guitar. It goes from jazz to rock to Santana, with a fruity, velvety excellent.
57 in the same PAF Bridge cons clearly lacks many calories to make live this "plank" of mahogany. Okay, it is consistent with the original, but the music has evolved since the 60s, and for added versatility, it will be necessary to invest in something more muscular.
A Dirty Fingers, for example, to stay at Gibson, will make a great versatility to the instrument, which will then walk into the complex without the metal industry (but equally well in rock and blues). Associated with race heat of SG, we quickly get to a God!
(Calm down .. it was an illusion)


OVERALL OPINION

I used this model (the original in this case) for a few weeks ago a long time and I had always kept fond memories and nostalgia. The SG of the 70 were blatantly worse - stick close and still flexible microphones less interesting than the PAF, and newer models SG (SG Standard) are certainly good guitars, but I missed the charm of that indefinable it. And then Flash! putting their hands on this model in store, I immediately found the sensations of origin. Even before connecting. Great success, very faithful to the original model.
The price is high. But there's something for his money. It is a unique instrument.
