I wasn't quite sure where to put this thread since I'm open to any brand. I realized just before my birthday that I've never owned a decent guitar that I really wanted so I started doing a bunch of research. Days before (and after) my birthday were spent going around everywhere trying out different guitars and seeing what fit. The last place I went was a Guitar Center (I had exhausted all the mom and pop options) and I discovered that the guitars I liked the most were their cheap Epiphone SG and Special II's. I liked the shape a lot, they were comfortable, they just sounded good unplugged and felt good in a way that the guitars that cost hundreds of dollars more just didn't. But god damn is it hard to find an SG in purple, and I really want purple. While there's currently the Epiphone SG Muse Purple Passion Metallic it's really more on the pink side than the kind of deep purple tones I was hoping for. The 2007 Gibson sg Goddess Violet Purple Burst looks great but is outside of my price range and the purple Gibson sg Futura 2014 just doesn't seem to be all that common. So, this is all a very longwinded way of asking, is there an affordable way to go about getting a purple sg? Should I look to get something custom made? If so, any recommendations? Unfortunately, my price range maxes out at around $650 but it's somewhat flexible. If you read all this rambling, thanks!
