Also, go for it man. Great guitar; I've got one in black. Plays great, and it's pretty versatile (contrary to popular belief, it's not just for hard rock).

^ That is the second sweetest SG I've ever seen. Btw, white SG is sweet, red is too common, but black does look really nice too. Go for it.

I'll take any excuse to post this:

Gibson SG Goddess in Sky Burst. One day I'm either going to hunt one of these down or I'll make a Warmoth SG and have a decent luthier copy the finish. It pisses all over the standard red, cherry, black, white and cream SGs.






Images vary, in person it's a very pale aqua blue to bright mid-blue burst. It's got the big style pickguard obviously, and the other things that really complete the look for me are the transparent pickups, the coloured headstock logo to match the finish, and the old style single piece wraparound bridge. The only thing ''wrong'' with it is they made the neck painfully thin and the body even thinner than usual too, so it's got even worse balance than an Epiphone SG and the neck is so thin even people used to Wizard necks would find it painful to play on. I'm seriously considering getting a Warmoth build or a private luthier copy though, with a thicker body and a normal neck. I mean look at it. It's pretty much the most beautiful guitar in the world.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

i love natural burst. i might be done with new guitars for a long time unless i find an SG standard in natural burst that i can afford
#16
Natural Burst are really nice on sg's, and as common as it is, red is the second best imo. Black is really nice too, I'm not a fan or very modern looking finishes on sg's, like the purple, blue and green or whatever.
#17
I actually find that black sg's are common, I barely ever see cherry red sg's.

Any other silverburst fans?

I like rainbow SG's with marshmallow pickgaurds.

tl;dr Red is not too common.

SG's are not that common at all when you come to think of it. Everyone has a strat these days.

Also, if you have an SG, come say hi in the SG thread.

That is all.

Also, silverbursts are pretty cool. Although I think the colors that the SG X has to offer are my favorite.

I agree with natural burst! The reason I don't like black is because you can't see the wood, and I love seeing it thru the red/nat burst.

Niiice colors. and has anyone else noticed that gibson is sorta leaning more towards their sg's now, and not so much the les paul's?

I dunno if thats right, but it seems that way to me.

All the les paul's have been done. every last finish, what else can they make, really?

i like cherry. white is cool on sg specials, though. and that aged white on the 3-pickup model is nice.

those blue bursts (sky burst and midnight burst) look pretty cool too, i hadn't seen them before.

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.

Hey, I've got a red one!

No, I'm kidding. About the mad thing, because I do own a red SG, and I think you are right, they are kinda common, but you have to admit it's a nice color.

And if you wanna know my opinion on other good colors, I think they're all awesome!
