I have a notion to buy a SG.. My budget puts that at an Epiphone. I like the sustain and I've always loved the look. In fact a while back I was looking for and Epi SG when I ran across my Genesis for a silly price so I bought it instead of an SG. Well.. I still want an SG. So I pose the question.. Which SG? It'll have to be and Epiphone. I see the Special for $179 at the big box stores, and some slightly more expensive ones as well. Is the Special a decent buy for the money or should I stretch the budget a bit? GC is right down the street from me. I drive by Sweetwater every day so I stopped in and played the Special for a bit. Great sustain, played good but it was a demo. I didn't pull the trigger. I missed out on the MF sale a few days ago but I could probably get GC or MF to come off their prices a bit. Not so sure about Sweetwater. They are having an Epiphone sale but only on the higher end LPs for the most part. Opinions please!
