I've never tried an SG, and none of the stores around here have them so saying "go try it" doesn't really help. Are they good for metal, and can the be good for leads? Or are they more of a classic rock sound?
#2
i have an sg with open humbuckers and it kicks ass for metal as long as you set it up right but i use it for classic rock too its a pretty well rounded guitar and i love it
#3
Very versatile guitar. I know of numerous metal bands that use them. Most use EMG active pickups though.
#5
Yes, it should do fine. I would suggest that you steer clear of the low end Gibson SG's though, because they're pretty much garbage.

Oh yes, check out the Atlanta band Colossick, Maq uses them. That's just one that I've seen.

I also saw that Epi released a new limited edition alpine white G400 with EMG's. Quite a nice looking guitar!

Too tempting to not say it.

i have a sg standard, with the 490 R and 498 T humbuckers that come stock on it, and they are great for all sorts of music from classic /modern rock, to metal, to hardcore, to emo, to punk, to nu-metal this thing does it all, and dont listen to the ppl that say gibson necks are harder to play, i had no problems goin from my strat to gibson neck style

Yo wassup, I'm trying to expand my musical horizons if you know what I mean, so can anybody reccomend me some cool Juggalo jazz?
#14
It has 2 extra frets, but I don't think they would justify the price. Although the supreme has better pickups I here.
#15
Yes, if you don't plan to use a tremelo, you can do things alot easier because of the cut-out allows you to do things such as do an alternate picking riff at like the 19th fret or arpegios there. No matter which SG you can get you can replace the Buckers with Duncan, Dimarzio, Emg or other enjoyable pickups-But you'll have to cut one out for a battery box for an Emg because they need a battery to work.
