Gibson is a leading guitar builder for the hard rock and metal movements. These guitars sounds fantastic and pretty much any setting you have to man but really excel in the high again and extremely overdriven guitar tones. You have two humbucker pick ups as well as mahogany wood in the body and in the neck. This gives it a very thick to meet tone compared to a Fender Stratocaster guitar which generally is a little bit brighter in tone because of the body woods that are used. This is a very simple design yet ineffective guitar for most music and recording.

Gibson SG sounds fantastic when you couple it with a good high gain amplifier such as a Mesa boogie or Marshall amplifier. What do you get your distortion tones from the tubes at the amp or from the pedal that you're using this guitar will sound great in any setting. I like these guitars with the Marshall amplifier and a little bit of delay or chorus modulation sounds. You're really focused the biting tone that is very good for kicking and recording. I've used a Gibson Les Paul and many recordings but I've actually used to Gibson SG even more. It just hasn't right perfect frequency for recording and it's mid range to low wind tone captures very well and recording session.
I highly recommend these guitars for anyone looking for a great recording instrument. They sound fantastic and almost the perfect frequency for recording with. You can find guitars and most retail shops anywhere you find any Gibson products. This instrument is very well designed and feels very comfortable as well. If you used to Gibson guitar in the neck is going to be very comfortable for you if you're used to a Fender guitar than the neck is going to be a little bit more chunky. Overall integrative Sherman and extremely versatile instrument to boot.

The neck is really nice (it's like the sg standard), apart from the nail that sticks slightly, but this is due to the fact that the guitar is new!
No direct references to the handle, just the band!
This guitar is exactly my style of music (I play the Rock - Metal)
The pickups are really great, it's heavy, Gibson did not fade before EMG81, Seymour or the "blackout", the attack is perfect, especially in the bass, and balance between the microphones is just perfect!
I tested it on a ENGL Powerball and a Line6 HD147, I am very happy with the result and the power that emerges this guitar!
Only problem is the clear sound even better when on my sg standard!
I've had five days, and I tested again! This procurement satisfies me, I will test in concert on June 17 and I admit being very excited ))) it is complementary to my SG Standard.
To conclude, I do it again without hesitation that choice, it is not messing Gibson) and the price is really attractive!
The GEM +
