Yeah - they're not going away though. Just an american way of restructuring the company and separating the bits that make money (guitars) from the bits that don't (not guitars). You'll still be getting gouged for a Les Paul for years to come...

I used to really want an SG, but they're really not that great... I don't think I've ever actually played a real Les Paul. The only way I'd ever get a Gibson is if it was a genuinely old ES175 or maybe the fully hollow version of the 335.

I'm a Dapper Dan Fender man.

I like the sound an SG makes but I think they look horrific, also I am big and they are tiny - it just looks silly when I play one

Quite surprised to hear that when they've always made great business decisions by giving people what they want.

They are the Marvel Comics of Guitars. Their business model is identical.

"Hey, remember that thing everyone liked? Well, let's do it again, and again, but make it much, much shitter each time".

But it works for Marvel because people are stupid.

SGs are the best guitars on the planet. Y'all can do one.

I'd buy another SG if I could afford a SG Junior, cos Euroboy's one looks fucking sick in this...

Unfortunately I don't have a spare £1200.

Les Paul Jrs are absolutely fantastic guitars. I owned an SG for a time and it was excellent too. Sounded lovely, but had monster neck-dive problems. Let it go for a second and it was on the floor.
