Yes, yes I know, yet another geetar review. But a man has to have a hobby and sheep farmers keep a watchful eye on their livestock these days. Anyone want to buy a pair of second hand wellies? Seriously, I've been after a USA built Gibson for some time now and decided to go for the SG Special in...

“My Gibson SG”

ProGreat look, great sound and playability. Light

ConsQuite expensive therefore not for beginners

Hello I am returning to Ciao after quite a few years! I thought I would start by reviewing what I regard as the best product I have ever purchased! I have been a guitar player over 6 years and play this guitar most days. Any technical words I use I will try to explain for people who do not play...

ProReal Gibson Quality

ConsHeart Stopping price tag

We've all been there, watching tv seeing artists with their expensive guitar and sighed. If only I could afford one of those. Most likely you've visited your guitar shop and had to think about settling for a korean/mexican guitar that just isn't that special USA produced one you wanted. Well let...
