So I just got a new gibson sg standard and it's pretty awesome. It looks like it hasn't been played in years though.. I'm thinking I'm just going to change the strings, check the intonation, check the truss rod, oil down the fretboard cause it feels really dry, and you know all that. It looks like it was set up pretty well but it must have been years ago.

OR! Do you think I should just take it in to the local guitar store and let them check it out n set it up?

Congrats on the new guitar

depends on whether you feel like you could do a good job setting it up. If so, go ahead. If not, then give it to people who do.
ALWAYS

Gibson's need more care than other guitars IMO. I would invest $25.00 in Dan Erlewine's Guitar Player Repair Guide 2nd Ed and learn to set up and care for your guitar yourself. He'll show you the proper order to do those things in and the right qway to do them.
Congrat's on getting a nice guitar too.
Moving on.....
