Alright, the way i see it, they are the exact same guitar except the fingerboards are different, one is an sg and the other is an explorer, and there is a $100 price difference. What do the brilliant minds of the people suggest? Is an ebony fingerboard instead of a bound fingerboard really worth $100?

By that logic, Les Pauls would cost the same as SGs
correct, but les pauls are not in dispute right now

i would get the SG, only because i like the thick neck on it, as opposed to an explorer
Epiphone G-400
Yamaha Pacifica (Mod on hold due to procrastination)

Get the SG, the futura is HORIFICALLY ugly. As in, it scares babies, it's just that ugly! If they'd kept the regular explorer shape it would be a thing of beauty, but alas

An Epiphone SG is really unbalanced, but it looks better than the red futura, I would say get the Futura FX

The Futura is an Explorer type, so it's got more body mass and the weight is a little more balanced. That's why it costs more, more wood = more cost for them to make = more cost for you to buy.

That's the only difference though. The Futura will have a slightly deeper tone thanks to the thicker body and one of the versions comes with an Original Floyd Rose, but neither are huge selling points to me. Ultimately there's no real build quality difference so if you prefer SGs buy the SG one, if you prefer Explorers buy the Futura, that's all it comes down to.

SG as the Futura is hideously ugly. It looks like an Explorer that's been brutally beaten with the ugly stick.

Ok, i have a question, y does everyone say the Futura so ugly? It's very similar to an explorer. The explorer does look better, but it can't be by much. One girl being hot doesn't make all girls less attractive ugly. Catch my drift?
