Hey guys,

i'm looking for a nice and affordable SG copy.

The only requirements are:

-Full pickguard
-Neck binding
-Inlays like SG gibson


ps: i'm European

thanks

Define 'affordable'.

Also, by wanting those specs, you've pretty much assured yourself that you won't find too much, I wouldn't think. I haven't seen any full-pickguard SG copies with trapezoid inlays and cream neck binding. If it were me, I'd suck it up and deal with dot inlays and no binding, and probably with the '61 SG's pickguard.

Actually there is, but it isn't decorative binding. Gibson and Epiphone necks that don't have decorative binding are all bound with the respective fretboard wood, which is why most Gibsons and Epiphones don't have any frets that extend off the neck. It's really a clever, and nice-to-have feature.

Also, it only has the '61 SG style pickguard.

Also, suggestions that only sort-of meet your requirements. Deal with it :P

They ALL have neck binding, as has been explained previously. Some of them just don't have cream binding. Which isn't a big deal anyway, tbh. It doesn't affect the sound or playability of the instrument to have the binding be cream colored plastic instead of matching wood laminate.

Play a lot of them before you buy one. Some have balance issues and of course some are simply flawed, quality control isn't quite up to scratch.

But yeah, if you play a lot of them, find a good one and have it set up properly, it can hold up fine.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

Epiphone G-400 would be the first place I'd look. I've played a few and they've all felt pretty good.
