It was my upgrade from an Epiphone SG. I'm bigger on the single coil tone. For me the epi was only good for Cream and Black Sabbath tones which (while I love) I aren't my favorite to play. I sounds a little twangy like a tele, but different too. Almost like a strat and a tele did it, but that still isn't quite what it sounds like. Very cool to play anyway. I loving the narrower neck with a smoother bottom and it's lightweight semihollow design. It makes it very easy to play. The tuning machines seem a lot better on this than the old SG too, even though the knobs are plastic(which I actually prefer because they don't leave grime and prints). The pickup's control knobs are stacked with the bigger black circle being the volume and the top cream colored knob being the tone.
