I have a collection of about 35 guitars ranging from PRS, LTD, Jackson, Charvel, Schecter, Ibanez and Gibson. I even have a Brian May Red Special. Understanding this is a basic model for the American made SG, I am perfectly satisfied for the value per dollar. I play mostly hard rock (AC/DC, Judas Priest, Sammy Hagar, etc.) and this guitar is very versatile, even without the Floyd Rose. It came set up well with a very nice soft case and a picture of the actual guitar during manufacture. It stays in tune, plays fast and sounds great. It's a good alternative when playing a fixed tail without the weight of a Les Paul and has that distinctive Angus/Tony Iommi SG sound. Sam Ash did a good job of getting it to me quickly and without incident. I highly recommend this guitar and supplier.
