    First off, youtube auto translate vaguely works, at least enough to figure out what the band is saying.

    The guitarist starts off with a white SG and the band does some intermittent playing and lots of talking. At about an hour and 20 minutes, he switches to a cherry bat wing. Later on, there are a couple of slightly better views of the guitar.

    A $6,000 dollar SG clone? I'm guessing Sago sources their parts from the usual suppliers, so probably on a quality scale with Japanese made Epiphones.

    One thing is pretty weird. The in progress photos on the Sago website show a pancake body, that looks thicker than a regular SG, which if not indicates, at least offers the possibility of a chambered body, yet it's not listed as such. Although the one piece hond. mahogany body could mean a single blank halved and glued back together again, if we want to play around with semantics.

    Try more in line with Gibson custom shop or actually probably better since it will be all handmade versus assembly line.

    Since you seem to know about these what can you tell me about the "new materials"?

    Wow, that is a very unique take on an SG. Reminiscent of a beetle's head. I would expect that with 'mandibles' that large there would be real problems with cracks unless they made the body thicker (i.e. more solid wood). Interesting.

    Reminds me of the Epiphone G-400 Extreme:
