All right, I've really had it. Especially today. The Gibson SG has got to be the stupidest design any of us has ever been saddled with. I don't know how it has managed to survive so long. It should have been consigned to the dust bin of history decades ago. Uncomfortable, ugly, clumsy, unbalanced, old fashioned, outmoded and, well... just dumb. These guitars are just lightweights. Not only does the tone manage to sound muddy and tinny at the same time (and how is that possible anyway?) but the SG neck also is both too chunky and too whippy. They just can never get it right. The placement of the controls seems awkward and hard to use, compared with just about any other instrument. How many times have we all turned the wrong knob? Yeah, you bet. And instead of being able to flip the toggle fore and aft, which would make sense, we have to remember that up means neck and down means bridge. Try doing that when the smoke bombs are going off on top of the mains, and the girls are dancing in the aisleways, waving their arms in the air. And I wish Gibson would make some interesting colors, instead of the same red they've been using since dinosaurs were slithering around under the stage. I'm disgusted with this guitar, and I'm going to play my Telecaster.
