I didn't really think about it before I got my SG-Z. I had a Gibson Flying V-90 and found out they made a similar SG model with the SG-Z. They weren't very popular and were selling cheap, so I got one and then another one and never looked back. Of course, the lightning bolt tail plate and headstock logo reminded me of Angus, but that wasn't why I bought them. Warning: Extreme neck dive.
