Gibson SGJ14 - Vintage Sunburst Reviews

5.0 stars based on 7 customer reviews

    Ex drummers buy guitars, perhaps for the wrong reasons

    I got an entry level Gibson SG: SGJ14.

    1. Because itís a GIBSON SG!

    2. SGs look timelessly baddass! They all do!

    3. I like Tony Iommi, and Angus Young.

    4. Because I like choppers, hot rods and bobbers. The SGJ is to guitars what a bobbed Harley Sportster is to motorcycles: basic, light weight, American made, no frills, stripped down, ready to boogie, all horses and no chrome- badass! (Yeah, I like using that word: badass when it applies!)

    5. Upgrade options abound, but why screw with perfection?

    6. Price affordable so I can buy more than one... and screw with perfection!

    7. Itís my first electric! What a perfect way to begin an electric guitar collection!

    8. Itís a mo ****** GIBSON SG, man!

    9. A GIBSON SG!

    10. G. I. B. S. O. N!

    All fun aside, The axe, and itís cousin, an Epiphone DR500 MCE acoustic, arrived packaged way above and beyond what Iíve read about the competition. Both guitars were set up just fine. Though I play the acoustic more than the electric, Iím beginning to get the hang of this electric guitar thing: mainly, the art of using a guitar pick! After all, I donít want to be the guy who buys a Sportster and keeps it in the garage only to occasionally stare at it and say: ďI got a Harley!Ē
    Itís like keeping your Tama hardware and Paiste cymbals polished, but never taking your best **** to the gig. I was NEVER that guy.

    2014 SGJ

    This guitar was a good deal for the money. The 61 zebra pups sound great to me. The guitar is a stripped down no nonsense player resulting in good bang for the buck. Felt great right out of the box, I have no choice but to give it a thumbs up and good rating. If you want a reasonably priced SG that can get it done.....this is the one.
    Sweetwater's customer service is second to none, thanks!

    Great guitar, great value

    Was looking at getting an Epiphone SG, but for a couple hundred more, I went with the Gibson. It sounds great and the people at Sweetwater set it up really nice for me. Can hardly put it down.

    never plaid a guitar before.

    very nice guitar.

    This is my first guitar and I wanted an American made o e. The craftsmanship in this guitar is excellent. It sounds great with tons of sustain. The gig bag is nice with plenty of padding.

Also The folks at Sweetwater are really great, I had a situation with my order and these guys worked with me got things sorted out and now I have a really cool guitar. I Don't think there is enough stars for how well the people at Sweetwater work with their customers. Bar None!

    Love this SG!

    Really enjoying this guitar. Typically a 50's Rounded preference, but I
    really love the neck on this SG. Mine is very resonant. Pickups are pretty
    hot, however, I am a Fender single coil fan and haven't had a Gibson
    for many years. I did replace the pickups with SD Phat Cats and couldn't
    be more pleased. I also feel very good about supporting a USA company.
    Craftmanship is as good as it gets.

    Sweetwater has done an excellent job in both sales and support.
    Thanks to Paul and Marty!
