    cool guitar but cannot understand why anyone would want that horrible vibrola or whatever it's called...can't make a whammy bar any less expensive.

    The Japs always have a hard time selling SG's. There is never enough price disparity to make them work, unlike LP's. I had a Tokai Japan SG - new- . By the time I bought a case and changed the pups it cost as much as a Gibson. It didn't sound or play nearly as well , and had almost no resale value.

    I read an article by Elliot Easton and his Gibson Elliot Easton model SG Custom...he say's he prefers the tone better with the vibrola than with the stop tail...I think he says it opens up the tone better with a bit of sacrifice in sustain.

    Could you please not use the term 'Japs' in the future...it's very racist...thanks.
