    We all know that the most important thing of a guitar is the sound and build quality, but other than that comes the look,and there are tons of variations of the classic Gibson design.

    Post here pics of weird looking SG copies, and by weird i mean both good looking and bad looking guitars.
    I'm making this thread because i really find the variations on the design of the copies really interesting, for example:

    Sakai SG

    This one is really cool, and probably the answer to the question "What if Fender made the SG instead of Gibson?"
    Sorta reminds me of the Telecaster too, must be because of the pickups and the pickguard

    EKO SG Indy

    Back in 1975 when EKO made quality italian instruments instead of low end MIC guitars, this one was their SG, really interesting design, expecially for the tremolo.

    Things change though, now we have...

    EKO SG (Current model)

    Remember when i said that weird didn't mean bad? Well, in this case, it does, this is what would happen if wood could melt.

    Gibson Eye Guitar

    Okay this does not count as a copy, i'm sorta breaking the rules, but oh well, i just had to drop it in.
    It's a 2009 limited edition (Only 350 guitars made!) of a "Modern Design", a 490R on the neck and a 498t on the bridge, both in red. The oddball look comes from the pickguard, instead of the batwing we have a Hulk Hogan moustache.

    It's for all those blues players who think they are "Blind Boy X" or "Y". If you can't see you don't need dots!

    I get the feeling that you are only allowed to play that Gibson if you are wearing bell-bottom pants and a suit jacket with ultra wide lapels. Also you should have big mutton chop side burns and be wearing platform shoes.

    The asymmetrical SG design looks weird to me, i mean it's not bad, it's just akward, sad to see companies like Harley Benton and Vintage adopting it to avoid lawsuits

    Not sure who makes this SG. Has no name on it and no serial number that I've found yet. Does have a set neck and quilted top though. Any clues to what it is?

    Looks like an Agile Valkryie, a very nice MIK guitar. The earlier ones were traditional shaped with the open book style headstock.
