Hi guys, I just thought i'd make a little rant here, sorry if I piss anyone off, just want to tell my little story.

So today I went to my friends house and a friend of his was there with a Gibson SG Standard and his P.A. system. So I jammed on this SG for a couple hours, and I don't know why but I just felt like it played terrible compared to my Epiphone Firebird. Which shouldn't be right, considering there is like £500.00 difference between them. Am I crazy and retarded, well yes, but I mean surely a Gibson should own my Epiphone Firebird Studio?!?!

Thoughts people?!

Different neck will play a part in it, plus it'll be set up differently to your Firebird

Well I feel like my 600 dollar Ibanez destroys some of the 1100 dollar gibsons I've played, sonically, in quality and in feel. It's really all about preference.

He might also have super old strings. The minute the strings die on my SG standard, it sounds and plays like ass. Of course now I have a Bigsby on it, so it's even harder to change 'em!

this was my first thought. different guitars = different feel. if you didn't like the different feel then you'd take your firebird over the SG. i'd take the SG any day
Warmoth Telecaster Deluxe. Warmoth Strat. Seagull Artist Portrait Acoustic.

I see what you guys mean, I will have to put a fresh set of strings on there for him, and just mess around with it. But neck wise I prefer my firebird, soooo much more!

Yeah. Personal preference and u are used to your firebird. I was used to my squier strat and a Les Paul just felt akward. Now it feels fine for solos and this stuff but for power chords I bough myself a 72' Telecaster Deluxe.
