They're great. My friends' SG is better than a washburn n4 i've played, and that cost £2500

SG's are overpriced, but they are in no way overrated. SG's are great guitars and I love mine to death (cept for the thick neck), but it all comes down to personal preference.

i dont mind the think necks, i play les pauls. but the body is so thin, and its just a rough transition to the thick neck. i like the standards and up, its just the specials i got beef with.
i lost my virginity. can i have yours?

oops i think i may of used the wrong wording :S i meant over hyped when my PRS SE Tremonti feels and plays just as good as my friends SG i have reason to believe they're not the sharpest knife in the drawer
#14
i dont think anything is overatted. Ive played not so great SGs, and i ve played amazing ones, that goes with any guitar, and pretty much any instrument, and there are so many variations of SGs, different models, different pickups, different necks....too many optoins to just say SGs are overatted. Don't believe the hype, but don't ignore the history,

Thickness of the neck?! You sure it's a Gibson, because one of the reasons I bought mine for the nice thin neck.

All Gibsons are overrated, and overpriced. Especially the SG and Les Paul. And I hate the feel of a Gibson's neck.

Gibson makes both thick and thin necks

50's neck profile = thick
60's neck profile + thin


sg standards come with a 50's neck. the '61 reissues come with a 60's neck. im not sure about the other sg's though.

and no sg's are not overrated, i love mine and wouldnt trade it for anything. (except a les paul standard )

I absolutely love mine. I love the feel of the neck because it fits perfectly with my hands. I put .10 GHS Boomers on it and it just rips. Amazing guitars
