  • Any SG love?

    I know there's plenty of SG junks here actually. Probably won't be of any help resisting this baby:







    It's a 2011 Standard in red cherry. Anyone know if it's just the pic, or if the regular standards comes/came in a darker shade of red, more like the Angus Youn signature model?



    The price is damn hard to say no to, but I SO can't afford another guitar I don't really need



    Don't have a single geetar with humbuckies though, and that's sort of a pain sometimes

    Nice looking guitar. I'm getting into the SG thing through the sub-basement -- my "Gibson Limited Edition SG Melody Maker" is on the truck for delivery today...

      Looks like a walnut finish. I love SG's, but I always sell them.

        SGs are way cool. Some people don't like the angle they rest at using a strap, and there's the neck dive thing, but I like SGs a lot. I only have an Epi G400, but it does ok for now.



        Sometimes Gibsons have finishes that are a bit different than the "regular" look for a given model. Maybe they do that on purpose, so people will see a unique one and say, "I have to have that one!"

          I always thought SGs were the most stylish guitars.



          Too bad they're neck heavy like a mother and will shatter at the neck joint and headstock if you drop it.

            In my experience, the heaviest SGs are lighter than pretty much any Les Paul, and vritually any guitar with an acute headstock angle is susceptible to neck damage if dropped...

                I really like SGs. At first I didn't like their "devil horn" looks. But like a homely girl, they won me over with their personality.



                As a bit of a guitar collector, what I've found is that their relatively thin, relatively lightweight bodies create more vibe and chime than a lot of heavier/thicker Les Pauls, and certainly more than some of their heavier all mahogany models (like LP Juniors or Specials).



                I think Gibson in many aspects was on the right track when they were abandoning the Les Paul model and the SG was the "new and improved" model they launched. There's still things about a Les Paul I might prefer, but if I were a blind man, there'd be no competition for me, it would be all about the SGs, whether P-90, Classic PAFs or modern medium powered (e.g. 498Ts) p'ups. To me they find a niche between classic Fender and classic Gibson when it comes to tone.

                Well Dick, it's got a good beat, and I could dance to it, so I give it a 10!
                I have opinions of my own,strong opinions but I don't always agree with them.

                          I learned to play on a SG. Had to sell it as a young mam and recently finally bought another after all these years. Really a cool axe!
