    I found this site in a guitar magazine and I'm quite impressed by both quality and quantity of etSG.

    That said, I just come from my guitar dealer of trust where I bought a SG Special ebony.
    Although playing since 25 years I never owned a Gibson but a Fender Stratocaster and an Aria ES-335.

    Waking up on Saturday afternoon like being hit by a thunderbolt, I knew I had to get it.
    So today I sold three guitars and a stomp box to the dealer, who gave my a fair price for all of it - 2/3 of the new price. And a friend will lend me the difference.
    I traded a Epiphone SG-400, Squier Stratocaster, a Hohner western acoustic and a Boss Tremolo TR-2.

    Right now the luthier guy of the shop is putting 10-52 strings on it, adjusts the neck accordingly and sets the strings low.

    Man, I can't wait the next 2 1/2 hours to get it!
    And after that right into the rehearsal room....

    Rock'n'Roll !

    I'm totally thrilled about it, it really sounds better than I expected. Esp. compared to the Epiphone SG-400 I traded for the Gibson, which didn't satisfied me with it's clean sound.

    I was not able to stop playing, even when I wanted to play one song with the Fender Strat, so I played them both at the same time ... not easy.

    To trade all the other guitars/effect to get the Gibson was my best idea since years.

    At least: Having a look at the german (and english) Wikipedia,org page etSG is mentioned there as one of three links.
