Gibson: SG Special Faded

Sound — 10
I play hard blues/rock n roll. Ive always been a big Angus Young fan so this guitar is what i basically need! Its running through a Marshall AVT50H and cab. Its the brown sound! Its not noisy and sure has a punch, I put covers over the pickups just for the looks!

Overall Impression — 10
I went in the shop to get my Peavey wolfgang fixed, Then i saw the SG, it was the first noticeable one there! i knew the time had come to get one! i px my wolfgang and gave 70, Best 70 spent in my life!

Reliability & Durability — 10
YES YES YES YES! Some people give these guitars stick and say they wouldn't survive live playing, I will say a solid bull crap to you people, Just snobs! I gig it every weekend and I haven't had so much as a string break... yet!

Action, Fit & Finish — 9
I had to raise the action a bit when i got it, But no guitar you buy is going to be set up how you like it. The pickups were fine also, the only finish flaw on it was a few unnoticeable nocks on the back of it.

Strap with a soft and hardcase.
