Hey all, I want to ask your input in this. I've recently ran through some interviews and clips for Les Paul (the guy), and it suddenly occured to me that the Les Paul is probably THE Supreme guitar. The Telecaster was basically a plank of wood, and the Stratocaster is an update of a plank of wood (both guitars are great soundwise though). I know that the SG is the "rebellious son" of the Les Paul, and is much more comfortable, and maybe even a bit more attractive in a sense. But the Les Paul is the legend before the legend (SG) and it has stood the test of time of virtually ALL genres of music. The SG had a lot or rock music history and few blues, etc. But I think that the Les Paul had been the standard of the history of all guitars. But the good thing about SG's are that: 1. They are MUCH, MUCH, MUCH lighter and comfortable than the Les Paul, 2. They have a unique sound 3. They can be more attractive in most people's eyes. But the Les Paul has 1. The LEGENDARY sound, 2. The LEGENDARY look (elegant plank of wood, would you agree?) and the nostalgia feel to it. I've seen many guitar models, but I think the most faithful to the original are the Custom's. I'm particularly fond of the Heritage Cherry Sunburst and Wine Red finish. But yet, I still think of the SG as the "all-around" guitar, especially in the comfort zone. I'm not asking which is better, but I'm just asking which would you pick, and why?
