why is it annoying i think its interesting

It is annoying because there are thousands of vids on youtube, millions of articles about this thread, and hundreds of closed threads on this site about this.

ahh who the **** cares of the rules...?

government also wont lemme take drugs but they do let me take alcohol which is more damaging? with the drugs they dont want you to take i mean plain old weed.

i like both guitars, myself i got a les paul but can be nerve racking getting all up in the neck, and the fatter sound is pretty cool, just depends what i play for the preference i guess

u wouldnt just do the rock n roll train with a LP thats just sg sound plus that style

Les Paul are heavy and uncomfortable

SG's are lighter, thinner neck, cooler looking

Les Paul's are better sounding, and seem to have more rockability?

SG's sound are good and very nice and warm sounding with P-90's

SG for me.
I think the SG is perfect combination of thick sound from a les paul and light weight from a strat.Whilst the les paul is the rythym players guitar,the SG is really the lead players guitar.Think how ****ed up Angus Young's ribs would be if had been jumping around with a les paul all these years?
Whilst the Les Paul does have a bit more natural tone due to the body,the SG can cover those tones.Hard-rock and stoner metal is perfectly suited to an SG in my opinion.
And don't forget the possibilites opend up with mods,especially coil splits.I love my Iommi SG's clean when it's on the neck pick-up.So warm
A big turn off for me from les pauls is the lack of comfort cutting at the back.Really digs into my ribs
The neck heaviness on the SG isn't as bad as it's cracked up to be aswell.I eventually moved my strap button to the horn,but I got used to the neck heaviness.

I prefer the Les Paul because of how deep the tone is. They are two completely different guitars though. This will be locked pretty soon by the way.
