wow, 50:50 on the poll! But I think they're a bit ugly. Don't like the cutaways.

No way. SG's with a full '66 pickguard are awesome. So are ESP Vipers in a solid colour.

i do it a lot. ill be playin somethin and i forget to close my mouth... sometimes its really bad, slobber everywhere. i goes mostly over the neck, on the higher frets, and its really hard to get out from under the strings.
#17
gibson sg's suck ass, the esp vipers beat ass tho.....the angles of the cutaways are more attractive, but i agree les pauls are still king!

I'm sorry but the bigsby whammy bar is the one of the most hideous things on a guitar (in my book) otherwise, SGs are OK.

When I first started playing guitar I thought SGs were ugly. Now... they're probably my second favourite body type.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

I dont think they are ugly, on the outside. Their tone is disgusting. And Angus Young, the most over-rated guitarist ever uses one.

Well, I do like the 1961 Les Paul, but I'm not too big on Bigsby-equipped guitars.

There, full pickguard and no bigsby

I never really liked SG's mainly to the fact in reminds me of AC/DC too much...

So yeah, I think there ugly.


You think where is ugly?

Oh for crying out loud! Two words: SG Menace:

This has to be THE single most amazing-looking guitar I've seen yet. Of all black guitars, I reckon this just has THE look - black and gold. Oh, and while we're at it, the classic '61 is just stunningly beautiful.

The thin mahogany body and devil-horn cutaways make this just a stunningly beautiful guitar.
Anyone who says SGs are ugly needs to have their brain rebooted - it's obviously crashed.

I am not stating my own opinion. I love the sound the sg makes it is veyr nice but most of the ones i have seen are well ugly. And also i am not a little 10 year old i just was talking to one of my mates about them and he said i should put a thread up about it to see other peoples opinions. Jesus the only erason why wee need admins is to stop you from spamming other peoples threads.

Ehh, I hate SG's with full pickguards.

I'm hearing a steady *thump thump* from the people above me and I need some porno grooves to play on my bass to give them some background music. Any ideas?

I don't generally like the look of SGs, but I like them in certain contexts. Angus Young would look like an arse if he played a Strat, and then there's this:


That SG isn't nearly as sexy once she puts it back on the stand...

Leo from Jaggedy Ann (AC/DC with big boobs) with a Gibson SG Goddess in Skyburst - most beautiful SG ever. Someone buy me one please.

It really doesnt matter.

Some Les Pauls are stunning while others are hideous.
Same goes for SG's.

As for the body shape itself, its alright. Nothing special, though the upper frets feel a lot more comfortable due to the double cutaway.
