    Yes, you’re right GNG; I am indeed fixating on it…. It’s a bit like the top frets access on a Les Paul, or bends choking on a 7.25” fretboard radius. All of these so called “problems” are only problems if you let them be. I’m sure I’d get used to virtually any guitar if it was well maintained...

    Thanks Westernrider. I don’t have particularly short arms, and it’s not that I strain to reach the tuners or the first few frets… it’s just that it feels oddly positioned and I just don’t enjoy the feel of it. My “muscle memory” won’t let me play it without looking down, because I’d land on...

    Thanks GNG, but if I am to get my one and only SG, I’d want pretty much a classic spec. I have a gold-top LP with P90s and since a lot of my gigs are in orchestra pits (for amateur theatre) I’d very much appreciate the hum-cancelling nature of PAF style pickups.

    Thanks guys. I think playing them though in the first instance will be a challenge to my judgment. They all (as a design) feel so alien to me that I doubt I’ll know a good one even if I do find it. I don’t trust my own hands enough to make a subjective choice. I’ve played many in my time...

    Thanks GNG. I’ve always shyed away from them because the neck extends so far out and they feel out of balance to me - a bit like the feel of a baritone guitar. I thought about one with a heavy vibrola which would go so far towards addressing the balance issue. Also, I’m not sure what it would...

    I’m a guitar fanatic and have been playing almost 50 years. I have a collection of fine guitars but have never really been drawn to an SG. Of late, I feel I might be missing something, and would like a classic SG model to supplement my collection. Any recommendations?
