    Sweet guitar, and very true statement. SGs, to some, may look pointy and "metal", but the reality is if you take the time to play one, they are easily one of the most comfortable instruments ever made, and very flexible musically.

    I dont think so. Well not in the examples I've played. Les Pauls generally sound better to me, with the big heavy body and the maple slab on top. Better upper mids, more clarity.

    Thats just my opinion. I sold my SG and kept a les paul.

    I had been tempted by it in the GC used section online. Couldn't find out anything on that name, so I took a chance given the price. Went to buy it & it was marked down even more! Bound neck & headstock, great neck, & good pickups, solid tuning & beautiful for barely $100. Not a ding on it except the chipped tone knob.

    The Austin is a killer too.

    Love this guitar because I can post it in both the Les Paul and SG clubs lol. '63 Junior modded in the early 70's with a '72 Gibson T-top.

    I agree- I love my SG and think it's easily the most comfortable guitar I have. It's so thin, light, and I love the contours. I get the whole SG/LP thing- they are very different looking guitars and conjure different images for different people. But the SG is so much cheaper (mostly due to labor and aesthetics) that it's a great way to get that Gibson sound. If you want the look and style of the LP, get the LP- nothing else will compare. But if you're looking for tone- an SG will give you pretty much everything the LP will (I know, controversial statement territory, but that's what I believe based on 30 years of playing).

    NGD! I've been working in El Paso, Texas the past few weeks and have been on the lookout for a good reasonably priced Gibson SG. Haven't found one that grabs me by the boo boo, but I stumbled upon an Epiphone pawn shop prize today...

    $120. Missing a couple of knobs and the pots were loose enough to spin around, so the neck pickup isn't working. But the body and neck are solid, frets are good and true. With a little cleaning up I think it will wet my beak until I find the real deal. After a new set of strings and a slight lowering of the action I think it plays better than any of the offerings at the local Guitar Center.

    I like Telecasters, but I love my 05' SG Standard. Easily my favorite guitar I've ever owned. It's kinda like Gibson's Telecaster in a way. Don't worry, I ain't going anywhere-- this is by far the best guitar forum on the internet. Here she is with my 72 Princeton Reverb.

    Here's Steve Jones from The Sex Pistols and Linda Perry from 4 Non Blondes talking about and praising the SG.

    Here's my SG Futura 120 th Aniversary. Model. Really like the sound. Really don't like the auto tuning. Thinking of removing it and putting standard tuners on. I like the P 90 and the 15 db boost. Both pickups are splitable. Believe it or not this thing can twang.

    Up beside my '68 Dart (daily driven). The fretboard isn't that bright in person, must have caught the sun weird.
