I've heard alot about this guitar and seen a few youtube vids of testing, but I thought it would be best to ask you guys what you think of it and if you own or have played one. Thanks guys.

You are going to get a lot of negative answers. (ex. plywood is better, sounds terrible, Gibson sucks etc.) But I for one, have played several, and liked each one that I played. There are some good ones, and some sub par ones. Try it for yourself and see.
Be cool.

ive tried the Standard and Special Faded and i like the standard more. The special faded sg paint just feels a bit...cheap, other than that brilliant guitar.

i had it, liked it, and sold it cause i was in need of money, thn when i saved up more money thn i was going for, i bought a sg standard, but the specal faded is still an excellent guitar. despite the price tag it still screams and growl like any other gibson.

Had mine for 2 years now and love it. I don't know how they are now since when I got mine they were almost $1,000. Try a few out, swap the pickups and your good to go.

I own one. The stock pickups are horrible, so you'll want to change those out for something better. Other than that, it's a great guitar. Pretty much as good as a standard but cheaper.

Exactly. I couldn't believe the difference when I got a new pickup installed. Personally I like the worn finish. Theres not a million layers of junk thats gonna crack over time. The worn finish still looks good when the guitar gets all beat up. Besides that it just has the dot inlays but I like them better than the pyramid ones. The pyramids are too flashy for such a basic guitar like an SG.

The stock pickups in my opinion are great. I own an SG Special and it handles just about every genre very well. The faded, special and standard all have the same neck pickup while the standard has a different bridge one (which i don't think sounds THAT much better). I'd say try them all out even though i cant imagine them sounding much different, but the biggest difference is just the inlays and finish...
