    Nah. An ESP would be better in my opinion. They tend to have a flatter neck making it easier to play faster and usually come with a 25.5 scale.
    The Floyd rose is recessed into the body too.

    Ive nwver used a floyd rose but that SG looks like a hell of a lot of fun. Looks like it is tailored for metal butbthats always just an excuse to test what its actually capable of. Looks damn good though.

    Nope. A Trem does not belong on an SG. And it comes with a Gig bag? Really? As an aside, they may be sold out already.

    True, perhaps. But just my opinion. If I want to whammy, that is what my Strat is for. Something like a whammy should not be some sort of after thought for marketing purposes, it should be part of the original design. SG's were not designed to have a whammy.

    They work OK with a Bigsby. Some others say the Kahler unit works really well.

    The FRX does not work well if you have a pickguard installed. There are adjustments you can't make properly; basically you can't get it low enough.

    That's my experience with it. Feel free to buy mine and see if yours is different. :-)

    Yes, they were.
    I had a 1963 SG Special with short vibrola.

    Technically that is correct.

    A tremelo is a modulation effect that varies the volume up and down usually found in the form of a stomp box pedal or as an onboard effect on some amps. I have never seen a tremelo installed on an SG.

    A vibrola is the tailpiece and bridge arrangement that produces modulation of pitch up and down with the use of a vibrato bar with the exception of some systems that only allow the pitch to be lowered.

    Apparently, my statement that SG's did not originally have a whammy bar option is incorrect.

    1961 Les Paul/SG (The first year of production).
