I've posted about my oldest son on here before. Today is his 19th birthday and I'm going up to his college tomorrow to move him back home for the summer after his first year of college. He's done well his first year and hopefully finally settled on a major (computer science, just like his old man). Went and bought his birthday present tonight. I had bought him a Squier Bullet Strat for Christmas a few years back and last year it went missing from his mom's house. We never figured out where it went, someone had to have stolen it. He's been playing mostly bass and some acoustic guitar, but he's always wanted an SG. Picked this beauty up at Sam Ash. It's really a deep red, all the pics I took come out looking lighter and pinker.
It's the cheaper Epiphone, but it plays like a dream and sounds great. The pickups are very crisp and have no noise at all. Nice crunchy distorted sound and sweet clean (at least on neck or neck+bridge pickup, bridge by itself is a little too bright). I admit, I've never been a fan of the SG, but playing this one, I'm kinda liking it!
