    Just picked up my 2013 SG Standard from local GC after I had ordered it online. Got home, and damn, the neck pickup doesn't work! WTF...so much for Gibson QC. Tomorrow it's back to the store and will order a new one that hopefully will work. And next time I'll try it before leaving the store. Very disappointing, to say the least.

      That's not really true. They've had lots of subtle variants of their regular models in the past and continue to make some today. What would you like to see from Gibson?

          The sgj and lpj are probably the worst made gibsons out right now, the pickups are ****************, the materials are ****************, and they were supposed to be priced a lot lower.Plus, the silk screening is super cheesy in person.

            I've seen a lot of those bargain-basement Gibbos out there and agree that they're pretty crap. They're obviously targeted at people who buy guitars solely on the brand name.

                I've never picked up a Gibson that had glaring QC problems. Setup issues aren't the same thing as QC issues although I think no nut slots would still qualify, lol.

                  The SG needs locking tuners cause the Klusons, while cool looking, slip.
                  Good deals with - Yarbicus, CBH5150, BozzofAngels, Alvin Wilson, Harris Quinn

                  Oh, but you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you.

                      What do you think of the new neck shape? I'm hoping it is the same neck shape as the 61 Reissue SG. I don't like the old SG standard neck shape.

                        I severely doubt it. Gibsons tend to have inherent tuning stability problems, but it's not the fault of the tuners. In fact, tuning machines have essentially nothing at all to do with tuning stability, unless they're worn to the point of physical deformity. If your Gibson has tuning stability issues, it's almost certainly the nut.



                        Sorry to derail the thread, but this myth that tuning issues are the fault of the tuning machines themselves really needs to be squashed.

                          My LP Traditional has the stock klusons and they work fine. And even though I hear the strings ping in the nut when tuning it sometimes, it holds its tuning really well. I like that the 2013 SG standard looks like a '61 reissue and comes in white.

                              Some of them are quite pretty. They are using a lot of rubbed finish. I am still happy I got my 2 LP Tributes with baked maple fingerboard when I did.

                                Wow, really surprised to see all the hate in here! hah



                                If you ask me, I'm actually quite impressed. Yes, they're the same old Les Pauls and SGs, but they're finally affordable. A USA Gibson under $1k? That was "fairy snuff" a few years ago. I gotta applaud them on that, at least.
