    Humbuckers are nice to have around for some different sonic shades. Usually it's the P90 variety that is lacking, so that's good that you have that base covered already with your Casino.

    SGs never appealed to me, though I've never played one either. Probably best to leave it that way LOL.

    I've got a bottom of the line Epiphone one in black, I could make you a deal on ;) I could bring it to Euroguestock Leiden

    Essentially the only guitar I played for 10 years. I love it but for looks if I was to get one again it would be the same one as PaperbackRocker. Black or burgundy, trapezoid inlays, Black batwing pick guard. Yea, that’s a beauty.

    @WhiteWabbit , that is one beautiful guitar......

    Pics like this will be responsible if my SG GAS fires up anymore and I wander to the music store soon....
    Right now I’m looking for a Kramer Barrett’s or Kirk Hammett model. This thread is derailing that slowlyyyyyyyy.

    That’s sweet, but no, that’s ok. I think if I bring another guitar into the house anytime soon I’ll be in trouble! Plus I really need to play the ones I have...:whistling:

    What I should have said was

    It's sometimes wise to know when to postpone the inevitable. :p

    Indeed. And my wish list is not very long but it is quite expensive. I must be strategic....:sneaky:
    (Oh and save some money...)

    SG's are frikking awesome, no reason not to have one. When you do get one, all you need is some of this, it's even recorded in Paris. If that's not a sign, I don't know what is :whistling:

    I got away with a new Tele and a keyboard last month, I now think it best to keep my head down for a while. Or at least until the bruising goes down... :eek:

    The guitar that created metal! Didn’t Iommi have something else but he broke it or something and this was the guitar they just happened to have at the studio? Lol

    Isn’t Blue Cheer the father of Heavy Metal? :whistling:
    It’s an old argument so please ignore.

    SGs are the iconic guitar of Heavy metal, absolutely!

    I have never once gassed for an SG. Never liked the look, the body is too thin and everyone I have ever played has a bad case of neck dive. Sure you can reach the upper frets but I have no problem doing that with my Strats, Teles, LP or other guitars I've owned. Glad for anyone who digs them but I'll take a Les Paul or 335 over an SG every time.

    Sorry to go against the general grain of the thread but.. I think they're bloody awful. Good access to high frets I'll admit, but that's about it. As has been mentioned, they're far too light, and so terribly 'not' balanced. Ugly too! I've never owned one, but have played a few, and was always glad to give it back to its 'loving' owner.. Nah..

    Well I’ve never liked the look, which is why I’m surprised I was drawn to one...
    But maybe it’s partly because of the LP’s price tag... so far out of reach for now...;)
