=============================================
***RULES***
------------------------------------
written by SGmanforever

Okay, here are a few rules I think we can agree on:

1. To be an SG commando, you must own a guitar with the basic shape of an SG. This can be anything from an authentic 1961 SG sold to you as a Les Paul '61 down to an Epiphone G-400, as long as it rocks the horns, it's all good.

2. Try to keep posts on topic. We're all pretty cool, so we won't report you if you make a single post just about yourself, but if off topic posting gets to be too much of a problem (like it did in the last thread) then we will have to change our position on that.

3. Avoid double posts. Use the edit button. The last thread averaged at least 100 posts in it's last days, and a lot of that was due to double posting.

4. Since GETs (having a post number of significance, such as 100, 666, 1000, 7777, 9001, ect) became a big deal in the previous thread, here is my stance on them; Go for them if you want to, but no more than two posts in a row to get one, and NO POST DELETION. THIS IS CHEATING, AND I WILL TALK TO THE MODS ABOUT GETTING YOU BANNED FOR IT!

5. Discussion should be primarily about SGs, but we promote a certian amount of camaraderie here, if you are a core poster, or intend to post regularly in this thread, you are more than welcome to talk a bit about your musical style, equipment, and bands you like so that people with questions about said issues in relation to their SG (or plans of getting an SG) know who to direct them to.

6. SGs rule. This is a rule.




Gibson SG Standard


Most popular SG. Full "Batwing" pickguard. 490r and 498T pickups. Neck Binding and Trapezoid Inlays.

Gibson SG 61' Reissue


A favorite of many, this guitar is based on the specs of early 60's Sg guitars. Notable features are a "half-size" pickguard and deeper neck pocket. Neck profile is slightly thinner than the standard and is more favorable to "shredders". Equipped with 57' Classic pickups.

Gibson SG Special Faded

The Bargain Hunter's SG. Faded finish and no neck binding. Also note the lack of pickup covers. 490R and 490T Pickups. Also available in a faded White finish with three humbucking pickups.

Gibson SG Goddess



Originally designed to be marketed to the Female crowd, the SG Goddess is known for a slightly thinner neck and more "adventurous" color schemes. Featured see-through Pickup covers and chrome plated knobs. Also had Grover tuners instead of the typical "green-keys" that adorn the headstocks of SG standards everywhere.
===============================
Epiphone
===============================
Epiphone G-400

Most popular Epiphone SG. Similar to the Gibson 61' Reissue minus the neck Binding and pickups. Comes with generic Epiphone Alnico humbuckers.
Other G-400s of note are the 66' Vintage and the Elitist SG. Both are variations of the G-400 but with differing and better features than a typical G-400. If you can find them for decent prices, be sure to pick one up.

Epiphone G-310

The cheaper version of the Epi SG. Bolt-on Neck, cheap tuners and a one layer full-size pickguard are the trademarks of this guitar. Only recommended to beginners.

Epiphone SG Prophecy



The "hardcore" Epi SG. Curly Maple top and lightning bolt inlays. A notable feature of this guitar is the satin neck. Despite the body being a lacqured finish, the neck has a flat satin finish. This may have an impact on your purchase if you are not informed. Equipped with Active EMG 81/85 pickups and perloid topped knobs. Full neck and headstock binding.

=================================
Agile
=================================

Agile Valkyrie

Chinese knockoff of the Guild S-101. Solid guitar and comparable to the Epi G-400. Features a Solid Mahogany body and set Maple neck with full neck and headstock binding. Slightly thicker and heavier than typical SGs. Equipped with generic high-output Ceramic Magnet humbuckers. Arguably better than the G-400 when considering the lower price and different features.

Comes in various trim styles over time. Including different finishes and features, Custom Albino finish, 24 frets, Floyd Rose, etc.




=============================
ESP
==============================

ESP Viper



A Popular guitar amongst the Metal community. Features vary quite wildly from generic pickups to EMGs, unbound rosewood necks to fully-bound ebony ones. An overall great guitar for heavier music.

==============================
Jay Tuser
==============================

Jay Turser JT-50



Overall a solid guitar. Similar or sometimes better in quality to a G-400. Has a longer lower horn than a "Real" SG. Has great reviews and is fairly cheap. Great choice for a first or second guitar.

This is a work in progress. All credit goes to the Core posters here, as i hardly wrote any of this.

alright, I think all of us should try to keep it more on topic this time around. We were averaging nearly 10 pages a day in the last legs of the previous thread.

Also we do need to make sure it's well know that this is THE new thread so people with actual questions come to the right place.
