that is definitely gorgeous! and so modernistic...

Seriously, anyone who can't see how gorgeous an SG is
needs to play some other guitar. It seems simple to me.

If you can't see how gorgeous the SG is, that doesn't mean
it isn't gorgeous. It just means you can't see it. *shrugs
No big deal. Some people always thought Lucille Ball was gorgeous.
I could NEVER see that. I still can't. *shrugs
So I look away, and what do I see... beautiful shapes everywhere
I turn. No great loss.

The world is full of whatever you choose to focus on.
And on this forum, it's the gorgeous Gibson SG.
SGs are also rebellious, devilish (in a good way), raucous
they can be smooth and jazzy, they can twang or jangle,
they can growl and shriek like ye banshee...
They've got beautiful design and usually fine execution.

SGs are hard to beat.
If you don't agree, you've got a lot of choices.
The rest of us won't mind.

Insecure? Me? I stated earlier that I am a New Yorker. New Yorkers are not insecure. Furthest thing from that.

Look, we have a difference of opinion. But as strange as your opinion is (some guy in Santa Ana in the 1950s designed a guitar to meet my considerations even though I wasn't born), I do not judge you personally.

Are you incapable of taking in new information at all? I don't know how many times I have to repeat the same thing and you still keep responding to a strawman. Once again for the balcony:

It is coincidence that his considerations match yours and nothing more.

You, on the other hand, feel if someone states an opinion other than yours then it is trolling.

And now you're trying to gaslight me. I call you out for building SIXTEEN strawmen and your defense is one strawman followed by another. Do you really think you're getting anywhere with these tactics? I never said said such a thing. I said YOU are trolling because I've seen this pattern of behavior from you repeatedly.

Repeatedly responding to arguments that were not made is trolling. You are not fooling anyone.

And of course, as with every single response, you drop several arguments to the point where you are now down to nothing but personal insults. Well done. You have revealed yourself for the troll and/or narcissist you are.

Your behavior here is incredibly unhealthy. I genuinely implore you to seek therapy.

There's an ancient saying that comes from ancient Greece:
"When an internet forum member resorts to judging another member's health and mental well-being, that forum member has lost the debate."

In your post above you have not once brought anything new to the debate regarding, "Is an SG gorgeous." You simply posted about a fellow poster's mental state. Clearly all your points have been fended off by NMA so you have nothing left.

Farewell, my friend, it has been entertaining and interesting. But please remember that we judge something to be gorgeous with our eyes; it is not some designer using a slide rule that tells us what is gorgeous.

I have some guitars (my Rickenbackers, my Gretsch) that people have used the adjective "gorgeous" upon seeing them. And, yes, they are gorgeous, they are beautiful, they are stunning.

Do you think an SG is gorgeous? Beautiful?

To me an SG is a fine looking guitar, but too workman-like, too pedestrian. There really is nothing on the guitar that is there for the beauty aspect.

Now, look at this White Falcon:

100% of that guitar is built for visual pleasure. I can post pics of Rickenbackers and could say the same thing about them. Gretsches and Rickenbackers are designed with an aesthetic geared towards beauty. But an SG?

Purely a tool. Sharp looking, no doubt, but certainly no one will ever call an SG gorgeous.
What say you?

That first guitar looks like Elvis in his Las Vegas period.

That is not to be taken as a compliment on looks.

Hey, Gwyneth Paltrow has the much deserved reputation as being the bitchiest witch on Earth, but, come on, you have to admit she is hot.

I wouldn't date her.

Yes, she is pretty, as in pretty plain, not beautiful in any possible way.

A prototype blonde cliche really.

And nothing can beat guitar threads when it comes to downright stupidity.
Man, you want stupidity? You have to go to some Beatle sites where we have threads debating whether the truss rod cover on an Epiphone Casino is better with three screws or two.

You do realize that on a guitar forum you just criticized the most gorgeous guitar ever made, a White Falcon. That's like criticizing Babe Ruth at a "Greatest Home Run Hitters" forum.

Last I checked looks weren't really an objective concept, on the contrary to sport accomplishments, which is exactly why the tittle of this thread was formed as a question.

I have no interest in basing my personal taste on the general consensus, as should really no one in my opinion, unless they have a strong wish to not stray from the ordinary norm, though I am still quite sure that many people outside of the guitar community would define the looks of that guitar as pure kitsch.

London, new hearing aid project - exciting
You are sort of right about sport. The motto of the Olympics is Citius, Altius, Fortius - faster, higher, stronger. Unfortunately it has become contaminated in recent years with an extra term - prettier. This is clearly subjective. I'm talking about stuff like synchronised swimming, gymnastics floor, high diving. Anyhting that requires you to look attractive should be thrown out of sport. Beach vollyball is hovering dangerously near the edge. Actually, sod it. Throw it out.

You don't want to throw out beach volleyball. Gwyneth Paltrow's acting career has been on the decline in recent years. There's a possibility she might have to pursue a career in beach volleyball. We'd all watch every match.

I'm very happy for her to do that - just don't call it sport. It's soft porn (did you know the maximum permitted size of their bikini bottoms is regulated?)

How about, as soon as you forfeited any attempt at responding with counter points, you lost the debate. Now you are just desperately trying to save face.

In your post above you have not once brought anything new to the debate regarding, "Is an SG gorgeous." You simply posted about a fellow poster's mental state. Clearly all your points have been fended off by NMA so you have nothing left.

Oops, did you forget to log in through your sock puppet account there? How pathetic.:rofl:

Bouncing back to another discredited strawman I already responded to, I see. Quoting myself for the THIRD time now because you have still not addressed or responded to this:

"I never said that your eyes are not drawn to what you consider aesthetically appealing. My point was that your brain is taking design factors into consideration automatically, whether you know it or not. You are presenting these as two mutually exclusive ideas when they are not. You find it personally appealing because the designer had considerations that match yours."

If you have no response, let it go. Do not repeat arguments I have already rebutted. You have lost the debate, get over it.

"You find it personally appealing because the designer had considerations that match yours."

You keep going back to that line of thought over and over again feeling that by repeating it, it becomes true. I have news for you, saying 2+2=5 over and over again will not make it true.

You keep saying what I find appealing is due to the designers. He created it...I had no idea at all in my mind what I like until that designer created it.

And you add that the creator's ideas of beauty matched mine, which is an absurd notion because the design of a Rickenbacker came into being a few decades before I came into being!

So let's sum up your point. Some designer in the 1950s created a guitar so in the 1990s a guy named NMA would walk into a guitar store, see a Rickenbacker and say, "Wow, I never knew what I liked until I saw what that guy in the '50s designed for me."

One other thing. I like this:

Gwyneth%20Paltrow%20in%20her%20Manhattan%20kitchen%20-%20photos%20by%20Mario%20Testino.jpg


Did her creator (God or her parents) have similar considerations of beauty that matched mine? So Bruce Paltrow, Blythe Danner, and God have the same ideas of beauty that I do. Got it.
Do you see how silly your position is?
