If you are patient, a good deal on a new or newer Gibson LP Standard will come along. I got mine as a demo and it was more than 1/3 below the going retail price at the time. That guitar is gorgeous and plays like a dream. Sounds pretty darn good as well .
Be careful experimenting. When you become a true gear junkie like some of us, you'll work up, and perfect all kinds of diabolical plans to sneak or get gear into the house. Juggling money, and then sneaking it in, or the old, "I need this one for it's sound and the style of music the band is getting into", or the classic, "Getting ready to sell some gear to get the money back", or "I got an unbelievable deal on this, I'll be able to flip it for 2 or 3 times as much down the road", or the pathetic and desperate., "This is my Xmas and birthday present for this year", and on and on it goes......
Uh...too late. DRRI was “my Christmas present for the year”. So I am already pathetic!!
Ya just get it in a color you already have and keep your fingers crossed they aint payin that much attention till it's a few months old. Then you can say what are you talkin about, I've had this a while
Well, I think @Lonn and @Textele expressed the feelings I have best. I've owned two. One a beautiful Standard; the other a Ltd. Ed. Blue mist. Both excellent sounding. Awesome guitars. EXCEPT, for me, too thin and hang weird. The Standard didn't really hang weird but I did use a wide, rough finished strap on that one.
Absolutely toneful guitars. But Brian really wanted a core model LP and both SGs were sold in that pursuit.
BEST wishes and let us know how you make out / what you decide. I didn't read the whole thread- maybe you bought and sold it already? LOL
If you are looking for a core model LP the one in the Classifieds here is to DIE for!
I will be the wet blanket. You have wonderful guitars. GAS gets in the way of learning to make music. Make music.
Man, SGs are cool. I especially like the sideways vibrola. But I'm cheap, so...unless Gibson decides to sell the vibrola separately or release an Epiphone version, I'm probably out of luck.
I've been thinking about adding an SG to my little herd.
Not a big fan of 4-pot controls so I'm pretty sure I'll get something like this:
Add a couple custom pups and ceramic nut and this SG would rock! Plus the headstock angle is "correct" on the Epi and not prone to spontaneous explosion like on the Gibby.
I was an SG player 39 years ago. Well a Melody Maker 2, but after putting T-Tops and a stop bar on it, it was pretty much a SG:
I’ve had three Gibson SG’s and two epiphone ones with three pickups. The epiphones stayed in tune, whereas the Gibson’s all had wobbly necks.
Sg "is" the Gibson "Strat". Nothing strange here. I have a couple. Actual new Epi G400 pro made in Indonesia is an incredibly good sounding (and appearing) guitar. I'm a lot happier with my Epi than my Gibson. You can consider this.
Because they arent idiots. Who wants a fat sg? Btw, these outsell les pauls
Moreover, you will have to buy another amp to fit with the SG? Double trouble.. combo.

They are not horns. Its a two sided bottle opener. So you can open a beverage and get right back to playing.See now its not scary or evil
Well, if you can afford to sit in the posh people's enclosure at London's Hyde Park gigs while the rest of us sit on the grass, you are clearly used to living well.
And didn't you see The Stones live? Well that's another guitar spent on those tickets....
