you really cant spot a difference?

... different shape... diff tone... diff control position... diff high fret access.. etc etc

edit: to the guy below... its not so much that its neck heavy... has more to do with the position of the strap... most guitars that have the strap at the base of the neck tend to dive

different body shape, LP is thicker, heavier, SG more curved, slimmer, lighter, has the pointy horns, you're not good at this game are you?
#6
les paul has a thicker neck, heavier, but always seems to have a slightly slicker action than any sg ive played

sg has thinner neck, lighter (beware neck dive), a deeper tone, double cutaway (perfect access to all 22 frets)

play both and decide which you like.

But theres some Epi SG's with no neck dive.

SG's are great guitars for power chords, and LP's are great guitars if you want to play more than power chords.
Studies have shown that 92% of guitar players are close-minded. Copy this into your signature if you're part of the 8% who enjoy rap.

they are both good for rock but the LP is more versatile


SG is just as versatile, it's actually better IMO, it's lighter, better neck access, and just as warm sounding, I disslike SG necks though. People just play LP's more cause "lawlzz itz t3h lez paul with t3h m4rsha11 st4ck!"

that makes...absolutely...no...sense...if anything, i'd say that the sg is better for solo'ing because of the great upper fret access, has abosolutely nothing to do with chord playing ...i own a epi sg g-400, and i love it. basically same thing...i'd suggest one

what do you guys mean buy neck dive?


when youre playing standing up... if you let go of your neck it will dive (down).. not staying horizontaly like most guitar do...

it takes a while to get used to

sg's have better fret access and a chunkier type of sound. les pauls are warmer. also sg's are really double cutaway les pauls made out of different woods and a better neck
