    Are you selling it? I think it looks fine. Reminds me of arizona at sunset.

    Edit: I cant afford a new guitar anyways but i think that looks really nice. To each his own. Im not much of a fan of solid blcak SGs to be honest.

    G400 Deluxe?

    That two-tone thing going on there is not a good look.

    Nope, local ad.

    I don't think I would have bought a guitar I find ugly. Do you do that ? :rofl:

    What a weird stain to choose, the sort of thing you might see on a high-end Ibanez does NOT translate to an SG!

    Ummm well I don't think the front looks that bad and who cares what the back looks like?

    It's a little funky but ... well ... my hair don't exactly look like my old picture either ...

    If it was done in a semi gloss..... maybe. As a gloss, oh God no.

    i think it is a beauty, just need to get rid of the veneer in the back and the maple(?) top(front).

    Damn, lord forbid there be an offset color of SG. Its not even that bad.

    What a bunch of color snobs!:D
    It looks Great and i bet it sounds great too. If someone wants to umm, mail it to me I'll gladly show you how nice it sounds.:hmm:

    I would spend about a max of 200 on that, and add a vibrola.

    It's not the unusual colors, it's that stupid veneer that looks like Mactac film.

    I kinda like it. It's a funky look.

    Veneer isn't that great, though, tbh.

    I found a few similar looking examples of epiphone SG the first is just mahogany veneers the second is a Korina SG, the OP has a flamed maple veneer
