It's a 2013. Wonder if Gibson was plekking them back then?

I have two S/G's. One with 57 Classics and one with P90's. The SG with P90's is my favorite.

Not sure if it's just me but I think that SG is the Gibson cherry finish and the photo taken is not really showing up very well.
But not to detract from your picture, Yes, that is a sweet guitar!
My 78' is one of the walnut colored ones and is a sweet guitar also.
Enjoy your new guit-fiddle and rock out to some ACDC tunes, Immediately, or it will just stop making music of any kind! Lol

I prefer a nat finish on an SG to cherry. Not sure why. Yours looks great.

Mine is called "Natural Burst". I don't see any burst but it is nice.

I'm an SG freak. But then I'm a guitar freak and I like 'em all!

Your Gibson is the SG Standard model with a natural finish. The giveaways are

- Keystone inlays on a bound fingerboard
- MOP Gibson logo and frog the headstock
- Small multi-ply scratchplate
- Covered humbuckers
- Light brown stain with gloss finish

This beast. Looks like yours.

Allright! Nice one. Yep, I love SG's I'm taking my Cherry one to a gig I'm playing at tonight. I also have a black one with min E-tune for slide work, both have "Classic 57" Pup's (yours probably does too) Both play and sound great, Congrats!

You can rock, blues, jazz, and swing with an SG. Super versatile guitar.

Peegoo, was there a P90 SG in that color or brown in the last few years? I'd like one with the 50's neck and similar inlays. No robot e-tuners. The only model I recall was the SG Classic but they were mostly cherry.

The 2018 SG Jr's are showing up. Sweetwater had a few Dandys last week. Weighing in a little over/under 6 lbs. P90 snarl with the old style smooth top bridge/tailpiece. Thought I'd pass that along. Cheers!

Very nice. Actually, VERY nice! There are hordes of cherry ones out there. This one is nice 'cause it's different. Really classy looking. Good score.

Nice!

I agree with stratcowboy. There are tons of cherry models. This one looks great.

Gorgeous guitar! Enjoy it. If I had to live without all but one guitar, I'd keep my SG. And I've got a dozen or so very nice guitars. Many that cost alot more than my SG.

If this is your first one, you may soon wonder why you never owned one sooner. On the other hand, if it doesn't do it for you, don't worry. You'll likely get what you paid for it.

As Peegoo said, they are versatile. Surprisingly so. My SG is like my favorite pair of jeans... it's just right. Tone, balance, weight, play-ability ... Mine comes through for me with anything I play. Through any amplifier.

I believe Gibson started Plek'ing production guitars (e.g. - not custom shop) around 2006.

The SG was my very first Gibson and gave me that Gibson ease of playability that a Fender feels nothing like. They never received the same respect that Les Pauls receive, maybe because of the looks alone. Otherwise they are light and easy to play and give you all of the Gibson goodness that they are known for.

That first fret is a loooong way out for a guy of short arms! I find that after playing other guitars, I have to pay attention to where I am fretting.

The distance from the front strap button and the nut is a lot longer than most other guitars. For example, the SG distance is 18.5" and is the longest of my guitars. The shortest? Strat at 13".

As nice as this axe is, wonder why the strap buttons are so small. Do they want you to drop it? Ordered some strap locks, in the interim using the 'ol Grolsch washers.

My brother has (unless he got rid of it) as SG. It's the best-sounding guitar he has ever had. I think he has had every make and model of guitar the Beatles ever played (at least after they became famous). But the SG sounds the best.

"...in the interim using the 'ol Grolsch washers."

That's *all* I use!!!

Well actually they're just generic flat silicone bottle gaskets. I have a strap for every guitar that just stays on.

Nice SG too. I don't know I've ever played one TBH. Just never attracted me like strats & teles.
I've had a few LP's though. (one home-brew LP presently)
