  • Gibson SG Menace vs. LTD Viper 500s / LTD VIPER-2005 30th Anniversary?

    Hi there, Could anyone help me decide between a Gibson SG Menace and LTD Viper 500s/VIPER-2005 30th Anniversary? The pickups are 490R Smoky Coils (N) and 498T Smoky Coils (B) on the Gibson Menace ; and EMG 81/85 on the Viper. I play hardcore and believe the EMGs would suit my style better, right? Also, is anyone aware of the differences between the LTD Viper 500s and the LTD VIPER-2005 30th Anniversary? Thanks in advance.

      I'll take the SG menace over the LTD viper any day.  The pickups of the SG will work great for hardcore(my lespaul has them and i really like them) but in the end it all depends on how you like the feel and tone of the guitar.
