One of the nice things about Gibson SGs is you can get great ones at a nice price point.

In the 2017 model year, Gibson returned the SG to a slimmer neck profile, which is more widely popular, and probably why Sweetwater is unloading their 2016's. I paid more than that for my 2017 SG (but not much more).

I have a 2017 SG Standard and it's a great neck (if you like slim necks). It's thinner than my other SG necks.

Yes, that was my point.

Agreed. They are one of the only affordable Gibsons left.

Just ot an SG Classic (dual P-90s) and I love it. Very easy to play and nothing sounds like genuine Gibson P-90s in a slab of mahogany.
