I love Sgs, I like Vs... I don't really dig this mix though.

I like its bullzeye edition better. TThe neck is really cool and the case looks badass though, pretty cool!

It may be good, but it's not for me tongue.gif

I am not the best fan of SG look, and I really don't like the Fly V look at all.

I have to say the epiphone looks better, most becouse of its head. But still, In my opinion, its an abomination i never even could imagine. I think the reason that the white in my left eye is nearly red today, is becouse it wanted to warm a little up before the shock of seeing this guitar... it seems my eyes foresee things:)

Scales = some boring stuff thats totally unnescesary to create cool music, liek, if ur stupid.
