right so I'm looking for a new guitar, I'm in love with the SG style so preferably that, price range up to and including 700€ (~500 quid, ~900$), ill be buying either in shops in paris or london, or at least test there and then buy online.
any suggestions for good bargains? ive been looking at epiphones, but they're not really blowing me away yet...
helpful suggestions always welcome

and then there's free jazz, which isn't even for musicians.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.

This. You might want to watch out for the different pickups, though.

Does everybody mean LTD? Because standard series ESP's are at least a grand over here.

looked at the viper series, looking hot, may go to a shop next week to try out a few. As for tone, mainly for jazz and blues, so very warm and fat. Should be able to influence that with a pickup change tho. So mainly looking for quality in manufacturing and playability.

The SG Thread pwns your thread.

Yeah, don't hold your breath for an Elitist. The ESP Viper is made great. But they come with EMGs, so you'd have to change pickups. And unless you'd be able to sell your EMGs and buy some new pickups with the money you get from the EMGs, you won't be able to afford a Viper Standard Series. Which is worth the price hike. So I'd suggest buying used pickups and selling the EMGs so you can get the Viper Standard.

+1 on that- if it's anything like the other MIJ Tokais I've tried, anyway, I haven't tried the Tokai SG. ESP is going to be way over budget in europe, unfortunately, and as you said, epi elitists are hard to come by (and probably over budget anyway, in europe).

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Cheers guys, been to the store today and tried the Tokai and a Gibson Special faded and decided to go for the faded, aside from the pure beauty that it is the variety of tones you can get from it is pretty mindblowing...
