Lots of talk here about Korean, Japanese, Canadian LPs. What's good in the way of SG clones?
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.
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.
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
