Just looking to ignite some SG gas since I can't afford a LP.
I've never found one of those magic Les Pauls. I also like the SG body shape without the curved top, which feels weird to me. I never found the sweet spot for picking on the Les Paul for some reason. I never ran into the neck dive issues with my SGs. To me it is the SG is closest thing that Gibson has to a Strat feel, which I think is the most balenced feeling guitar to play.
I have 2 of these, and they're awesome. They also have ebony boards. They have a little more snap to them that regular SGs. I like SGs because their tone is right in the mids where you want it - listen to Frank Marino or early Uriah Heep with Mick Box. There's also a reason why a lot of sludge dudes like em.SG Supreme has a flame maple top.
