So,I traded my yellow les paul for an SG Standard. I really love the neck on the SG and it feels so light compared to the Les Paul.

All you people doing the trades, is it mostly trading in at a guitar shop? Or with other musicians. I once did a part exchange thing when buying a guitar, but other than that I've just straight bought and sold. (I think I traded a boss pedal for a different boss pedal once, but I can't rememebr the details).

I loved my SG - surprisingly big neck too. Have been eying up white Tokais with P90s over the weekend, actually.

I'd like an SG someday. I was pretty close to buying a Natural Burst standard when I got my Les Paul.

Me too, once I found out how cheap Gibson SGs actually are (er... comparitively...) I almost went for a standard, then REALLY came close to getting a '61 re-ish just before I had enough for the LP.

No, westtexas red. Have you ever looked through his guitar pictures? It's crazy.

It's strange though, how even with pretty much the same specs the SG sounds very different from a Les Paul. You have a set neck, same wood species, same scale length and electronics, and yet the SG sounds more raw and bright. It's gotta have something to do with the body thickness, but it's still unusual how much effect that has.

Good choice, it looks like you already have another Les Paul to compliment it.

wasnt that mascis's les paul or something??? I'm shocked. I like Les Pauls way more than SGs. they just feel too odd to me. like the neck sticks out way to far, and they aren't heavy enough. If I want a thin light guitar I'll buy a fender
