    Hello everyone,

    I'm Frank and for 1 week I'm the proud owner of a 2014 Gibson SG Standard in a mint condition.

    I had been playing Fender bass guitars for the last 40 years. But I immediately fall in love with the SG.

    Even the G-Force robot tuners... I was very skeptical about that thing. But you know what? It’s indeed a nice gimmick. It does not disturb me, and it does exactly what it is designed for. Obviously, it does not cause any head dive at all, so it will stay on the headstock.

    I strung her up with some new EB 10-48 and tuned her half step down, respectively drop D.

    The sound this bad girl can produce is UNREAL

    What I can say is: I love her. I really do.

    That color is wonderful! Congratulations on your new guitar and welcome to the Forum (from a fellow German) :cheers:

    Is it your first 6-string electric guitar?

    Thank you dude! Much appreciated.
    Well, no. I had a Strat and a Telecaster. But both had very little playing time, collected only dust because I only played bass... So I sold both years ago. The SG is my first Gibson. But gas already itching for at least one more))

    Thank you dude. I am very grateful for all the kind words I get here. After years of waiting for the right SG to show up, I am very happy with my purchase.

    So the SG virus got you... Your new guitar will probably get a lot of playing time.

    Yeah .. Looks like that)) Not only a lot of fun to play ... I can also play the SG especially late in the evening in the living room. With the Yamaha THR, the SG sounds super good. My wife is okay, the neighbors ... All well. "Late-night playing ” was not possible with a bass. I was always dependent on the rehearsal room or headphones (I hate headphones ) However, I already feel I need a second SG. Maybe one with P90’s...?

    Lovely looking guitar. Hope you enjoy playing her as much as I love playing me Epi SG.
    Welcome to the forum.

    (I lived in Germany for 5 years in the mid eighties.....and loved it).
