My lovely fiance bought me my very first 2008 SG Standard in Heritage Cherry as a Valentines present, even though I already own 2 Les Pauls. Boy, was I surprised! This guitar exceeded all of my expectations. I have been a Stratocaster guy for year, owning 6 of them. I was attracted to the SG because of its sexy looks, the 490 and 498T pups, and the sheer playability of this guitar! I told her I was in love with it after only 10 minutes of playing. Everything they say about the neck is true. I still play my Strats of course, but this one is pretty special and I use it all the time running scales and for studio practice. Question: the strap button is on the backside of the neck like an acoustic. Does the SG have a tendency to tilt forward when strapped on because of that?
