Need an advice, i want to start playing Christian rock, i like how Gibson SG sounds, but i'm not sure about its devil horns.... Maybe they are too weird?
How do you think is this guitar ok for Christian rock?

But i always thought that it is a devil's horns. A lot of classic rock band used them, for example Black Sabbath Tommy Iommi.)

What if I told you the devil doesn't actually have horns.

Pretty sure he has an f-hole tho, so stay away from those.

"After Forever" by Black Sabbath is the greatest Christian rock song ever made. I'm not kidding, look at the lyrics.

What about these


Seriously if you go to a church that is that up-tight I highly suggest you find a different church to attend.

Get a guitar you like and enjoy playing

I've used this one in church a couple of times. Even took along some black duct tape in case they were upset. I told them it was from Pirates of the Caribbean ("You know, that Disney ride?"). "Well isn't that cute!"

But I always thought this ESP would work...

No one cares what guitars you play at church and if they do and it genuinely is distracting them from their worship, they have some things they need to think about.
From a sound point of view, Tele's work really well and you can get a half decent squire fairly cheaply.

But get what you want, what sounds the best for you and what feels the best for you. If that's a SG, get an SG. If it's a Tele, get a Tele. If it's a freaking guitar that shoots fire and laser, then get that. It has to be a personal thing, not compromising because an old person may have a heart attack at the shape of the guitar...

It's more than that. You need a guitar that honours God.... Has God provided you with you the guitar? Is it Gods purpose?

Watch Youtubes of your favorite Christian rock artists and see what they are playing. Phil Keaggy plays Les Pauls, Lincoln Brewster plays strats.... I see a lot of teles, 335s, some Gretschs... really, anything goes.

....well, anything except one of these.

When whatever religion you follow dictates what shape of guitar you are allowed to play... its time to wake up

As for me they are look satanic))

It's just a design choice. Fender went with an asymmetrical double cutaway on the strat, and Gibson went with a less asymmerical double cutway.

At any rate, get one of these.

Satan does not have horns. He is not scary looking. He is a fallen angel; he is beautiful. If the Devil were not beautiful, he could not tempt us to sin- his monstrous appearance would scare us off.

That said...

Sure, SGs have a sinister appearance, based on echoes of erroneous iconography of Western art, but they're used in all kinds of popular music. See Derek Trucks, for instance.

But if you're genuinely concerned about the SG's shape, stick to guitars shaped like Stratocasters, Telecasters, Les Pauls, V's, Explorers and anything generally "mainstream."

Christian Rock is like decaf coffee, alcohol free shots, vegan sausages or a woman with a penis.
Or a teacher who thinks he can reach students by rapping. You get the point.

Get a stratocaster.

And if you really want an SG, get one. People who judge you by the way your guitar looks are not Christians, they're idiots. "Don't drive through tunnels, you know what that stands for!" Jesus would get an SG!

Clearly, you're not a fan.

I'll just say that, while it isn't anywhere near my favorite genre, Christian rock can be quite good, quite powerful. Enjoyable, even.

Can be, but like all other genres, most of it is shit.

As a woman with a penis, I am offended that you would compare me to Christian rock.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Actually, Phil Keaggy's Glass Harp was pretty good. But still ...
