    A black guitar is a better guitar?

    Red guitars just get you speeding tickets ...

    Yours look lovely, and very very classique...
    Yours are achingly beautiful and very drool worthy.

    But I never cared for a red SG...

    The closest I ever got to a red SG was the faded brown one at right. She's supposed to look like she was red 50 years ago, but the nitro had turned
    yaller from time and tribulations. Gibson nailed it IMHO. But I liked the
    brown one because it wasn't red.

    Let everybody else play a red one. I'm for my silver burst, or my faded
    brown. Or an SG naked... love that concept.

    But don't let me rain on anyone's parade. The red ones are obviously the
    people's choice... they sell more of them than anything else. So I don't
    mind being in a small minority. And I don't expect others to embrace my
    choices. Red SGs rule! But I'll remain a rebel.

    Me too.

    Although I did buy one a couple of years ago - but it arrived with two strings missing (don't get me started on Gibson's QC issues), and I ended up selling it soon after...

    (Seriously, it was a lovely bass, but way more than I can do justice to, so I sold it to someone who'd make good use of it, gigging, and bought myself a cheap Chowny bass).
