Your general opinion of this product.
I kind of liked the Gibson SG, to me, the Ebony is very elegant with the contrast of black and chrome with just a little bit of a mean streak. It's super light weight and weighs about the same as my Strat. The tones that you get out of this guitar make it the best all around guitar I have, you can really feel, as well as hear the attack but it's not noisy. It's very responsive and easy to get the nuances when playing. If you play harder, it's notably louder, and vice versa. Gibson has gotten a lot of bad rap in the past few years, they aren't what they used to be, etc. I can tell you, after 2+ years of owning this one, it is the best purchase I have ever made and I would do it over again. It's definitely a great guitar.
