I got an SG special faded, beautiful guitar. I like the idea of an all maple SG though. It sounds cool.
The religious myth is the most powerful device ever created, and serves as the psychological soil upon which other myths can flourish.

I expect these to go the way of the Les Paul Lite. Anyone remember them? All Maple is going to leave the sound very bright which no-one buys an SG for. Prime candidate for bargain bin in a year or two IMO.

it's a very heavy guitar too. heavier than LP's.

that sounds like good news for my wallet, really. i'd love to own an all-maple SG or les paul.

I have tried the LP version. One of the heaviest guitars I've ever played, but also by far the best sustain. Really nice clear tone too, very articulate.

That said, I'm not a fan of the finishes or maple fretboards, so no dice for me.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

I was checking these out online, they seem OK in theory but for me that maple fretboard with a black headstock looks terrible. For a brighter tone, I think they'd do better with a new, lower end P90 SG model a bit like the LP Studio Gems from the 90s (update the Classic).

Then you've probably never tried one, or you've only tried a very cheap one. They may be heavy, and personally I'm not a fan of maple fretboards, but a maple body with a maple neck sounds fantastic, is probably the most articulate combination you can get, and the sustain is incredible.

Maple is one of the heaviest woods commonly used in guitar building. That's why necks are made out of it often, maple is very dense and heavy so it can take the abuse that necks need to be able to take.
