I don't normally like the fat rounded necks of Gibson SGs but I always wanted one. When I played this slim neck version, I was amazed! Plays like a Fender, but sounds like a Gibson. With the satin paint job and unbound neck, a fairly unique finish, it makes for a "special" guitar. For those that haven't played an SG, the resonance of the instrument is absolutely amazing and has to be felt to be believed. Buy one!!!
