Dwight, you are right in pointing out that guitars such as the SG are not lacking in high end definition. I totally agree, that's a fantastic sound.

Don't get me wrong, I like the all Mahogany guitars! My problem is that hefting a LP exacerbates a back injury I sustained many years ago. Probably the weight has a fair degree of influence on the sound.
