Lots of talk here about Korean, Japanese, Canadian LPs. What's good in the way of SG clones?
Actually, prefer similar characteristics to "exact copy." Thanks for the reply. I'll check it out.If you don't want an exact copy, the Reverend Daredevil HB is a great choice, it's definitely in the vain of the SG. Great stock pickups and they can be had for about $500.00.
I like to look around for excellent sounding and well made guitars that represent good values, meaning relatively inexpensive to buy and nice to play. Not necessarily looking at this point but thinking about it. Short answer: yes, less expensive that buying a Gibson.What is keeping you from buying an SG? Are you looking for a lower price range? It's hard to answer your question without knowing this.
I traded a brand new off the rack Strat in 1978 for a Guild S-100. Very nice guitar. As with all of them, wish I still had it.If you ever see a Guild S-100 Polara, grab it. It's their take on an SG, not a copy, and it's not produced any more since Fender bought Guild.
I had a late-90s version (from the old Westerly RI plant) that I paid $750 for with HSC. An excellent guitar, wish I hadn't traded it. ==K
