    New member and new SG owner here...:smile:

    I've been primarily a single coil guy, strats and teles. Never cared too much for the other Gibson styles, but kind of had a longing for an SG. Finally took the plunge and bought an Epiphone SG Special a couple weeks ago.

    Welcome along!

    You've started with a very popular guitar, only trouble is, if you spend much time on here, you'll want another SG fix... And then another... :D

    Not that it's a bad thing :thumb:

    Congrats and welcome! That Epi SG Special is a fine place to start. You'll find many tips on setup and upgrading parts here if you decide to get into that sort of thing.

    Welcome. My first electric guitar and first SG was a 2005 Cherry Epi Special. Enjoy it and hopefully it will lead the way to more great SGs for you too.

    Thanks everyone. It is a great guitar! I'm really enjoying it.


    Way ahead of you, there!:D Modding and upgrading is my thing. Don't even get me started on what I did to my 2014 Affinity Telecaster...............

    Yes. Yes I did.:D

    Did it a couple of days ago. And kept it so that the kill switch still works.
