All SGs are cool, regardless of model. But what particular SG, in your mind, is the coolest, most badass of all SGs? Post your pics here.

In my opinion, the most badass SG of all time has to be the 50s Tribute in Ebony:

I don't play heavy metal or even rock, but man, this is probably the most evil, menacing looking guitar I've ever seen. I think I'd be afraid to own one. It just dares you to crank out a power chord on it. If I didn't know any better, THIS is the kind of guitar I would associate Tony Iommi with.

I recently sold some of my guitars to buy one of these in vintage burst (it's on its way). I didn't feel I was man enough for the ebony version.

The sound is even cooler than its looks. I was flattened by the crackling, snarling growl coming out of this beast. Check this out: [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l4LTqb5x5EA[/ame]

That has to be the meanest, most gnarly noise I've ever heard come out of any musical instrument, never mind an SG. This is awesome.

Pretty mean, similar to the 50s trib in the first post. This is a pretty evil guitar:

I also think the gothic is a mean machine.

Damn, that one is even cooler, with the dot inlays. I think dot inlays suit an SG better than trapezoids, which I think look better on Les Pauls.

It's a nice guitar but I still can't see how they could call it a '50s tribute...:dunno:

My local store has the 50's tribute SG w/p90's for like $459. It tempts me every time I go in there, but I just got an SG Standard.

Mind, no question

I believe that Gibson stamps 'prototype' on the back of the headstock
in an attempt to answer this, which many of us have posted.

and +1 on the sentiment that the most bad-ass SG is MINE... I wouldn't argue
with any of us who said that, seeing as how there are so many absolute bad-ass SGs on these boards.

and this is a great thread, it fans the G.A.S.
