SG Diablo
Ups:
Guitar of the Month for February. Unique look and sound. Pickups are meant to be quite versatile. Limited run of 1000, kind of cool knowing that only 999 other people will have one.
Downs:
Not a lot of options with only one volume and one tone knob.

Robot SG Special
Ups:
Obvious plus sides of a Robot Gibson. Lots of finish options.

Downs:
Pick-ups are meant to be fairly average. Basically an SG that tunes itself, nothing much more unique.

Please help me decide! I'm really leaning towards the Diablo!

*EDIT: Diablo also has 24 frets

Out of those two I'd get the Diablo... you can always rewire it to have 2 vol and 2 tone pots later.

The Diablo. Those things are ****ing sexy.

I won't lie the Robot would be nice to play, but it's basically buying it to tune itself. If you can't tune by ear yet, go diablo no question.

I played the diablo earlier today, and i only have one thing to say...

GET IT!!!

i also played it thru a jvm full stack, so that may have helped

Definitely leaning more towards the Diablo. It'll be my first "high-end" guitar i.e. over £1000, kind of a bit nervous!

get the Diablo, no contest. much more high quality and its a better guitar overall...because it doesnt have the self tuning stuff there will be less things that can go wrong with it.

Most certainly. Just get 2 concentric pots and rewire it or have it rewired.

I was going to say get the '61 Reissue and save the extra money for something else but THEY RAISED THE DAMN PRICES.


The '61 Reissue used to be like 1500 bucks, now it's 600 bucks more expensive and totally not worth it. If you can find a Diablo and you like it, might as well pick it up. It's not any more expensive then the '61.


I was thinking about picking a '61 Reissue up, but not anymore. Fuck Gibson, they've stolen enough of my money on shit guitars.

Really, this high up the food chain, Gibson don't **** around.
Beatiful guitar, wonderfully playable, sounds great.

But OH NO! You have to tune it YOURSELF! D:

Diablo, easily. The robot is a bit Gimmicky - if it was a bit cheaper, then I'd be interested...

Diablo.
If you can't be bothered to tune your own guitar, maybe you should just quit your job and live on welfare.
GHOST BLOWJOB!
WHOOO! WOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Get the Diablo the robots are horrible IMHO I have been eying a Diablo at my local Guitar Center. THe have a custom shop LP that I can't figure out if I want or not but that Diablo is probably the sexiest SG I have ever had in my hands.
#23
Just thought I'd chime back in and say I have the Diablo now. I'm not just saying this because I just spent £1200 on it, but it's the best guitar I've ever played. Amazing to look at too.
