    No, no it is not wrong. :D

    I'm not a huge fan of the acrylic headstock (wish they just finished the whole thing in maple), and it's likely way too expensive for what it is, but it is undeniably cool. I'd play one all day long.

    Not wrong at all.

    Wrong? Uhhhh no....
    In your right mind? Probably not.
    Just the weight of it would be the turn off. Acrylic tends to be heavy. REALLY heavy. I mean, stupidly really heavy.

    Not wrong you want it but IMO that's too many shekels for what it is.

    Mate of mine has an acrylic SG, with an aluminium neck - from Electric Guitar Company. I think it's one of only three made, it's a baritone. I'm very jealous... Unfortunately, he no longer lives near me, and I've yet to see it, or see through it. :)

    This one isn't his, as his has a black anodised neck with white dots, but it's the same model:

    And yes, Bad Penguin is right - he's told me it's bloody heavy! On the bright side, I'm sure there's no neck dive. :)

    One of the beauties of the SG, is its light weight ... just saying. But it does look good.
