    I like mine a lot. Really no down sides to it. Plays great.. sounds great. On stage very light weight and easy to manage. The maple neck is pretty darn stable for an SG and adds a nice bite to the tone.

    Excellent and lovely guitars. My choice of that lot would be:
    Serial# 140097709
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    A beautifully simple and elegant design! (but you can't hear the wood through the amp, unless you mic it!)

    Put you ear to the neck, strum a few chords and take a listen. Then tell me how the neck is not part of the tone equation.

    I would have to slightly desagree with you. The magnetics do not "hear" the wood, but the wood changes the way the strings vibrate, and thus, how the magnetic field is created and, consequently, the tone.

    What I would say is: the tone the neck provides is monstrously overrated by most. The sound of your guitar is 80% pickups 15% wood/contruction, 5% magic (or randomly generated stuff from the universe).

    Well, conclusion, if I had to choose a side, I would go with what Biddlin is saying, but I would keep the neck/wood in mind, just a little bit.
