  1. It's fine, Gibson's aren't as fragile as people think hey are. But it's useless in a fall. As a professional guitar tech/Luthier, I can tell you that the right hit, any guitar will break. They all have their weak points. Strats crack at the neck heal or on the bridge posts, teles also crack at the neck heal. It's a known fact that Gibson's are a little more fragile than a straight headstock guitar but it's no more susceptible to headstock breakage than a PRS or litteraly ANYTHIG with an angled headstock... although I will say that SG's are susceptible to cracks on the body on either side of the neck if dropped face down.
  2. I feel you on that. I've always like the way SG's sounded. I prefer their sound over Les Paul's. There's some frequency there that my ears like. I just bought a 2004 standard in HC. Its not my first SG but it's my first "standard" Gibson with all the toys lol
  3. Did my phone just make 40 freaking replys? Sorry, I'm trying to use the mobile site but it's really cumbersome
  4. I would think it's more of a neck finish thing than a neck shape thing? Gibson is nitro which can get sticky. Epiphone is poly which is just basically... no not basically... actually, plastic which can feel smoother sometimes

  9. I'd take the Gibson. They also hold their value much better. It's actually pretty ridiculous how much they hold their value.
  10. Doesn't surprise me. I've never seen a fake studio. Not saying they don't exist but I've never seen one. I've seen Gibson's with unreadable seriL numbers before. Mine has an almost invisible 4 at the end. It's little things they do quickly that they are trying to rush I think. 2016 Gibson stuff doesn't impress me unfortunately.

    Well I kinda got sick of my 2015 LPM. The neck plus the brass nut were annoying me. I ended up with a 2011 GC Exclusive limited edition Les Paul Jr special p-90. I saw it the other day when I was in a hurry and played it real quick and liked it. The next day I was back with a friend and I saw it being played by someone else, the guy nded up leaning it up against an amp and walked out (come on!) So I picked it up and ended up falling in love with it. I have to say, after owning a Gibson with bi dong, you can't go back. It feels like a completely different category of guitar. I'm having a hard time posting pics but they are coming!
  14. Because it's cool. It's a baby picture. Mine got sold to me with the wrong case -_-
