I got the Epiphone SG in 2014 and have used it ever since. It's been my favorite electric guitar ever since. It's traveled with me to multiple band practices and gigs. It is body style makes it comfortable to play and is incredibly light. The sound from it is absolutely phenomenal! The guitar is well known and always gets great response from the crowd and my peers.
This guitar is very good considering the price. If you are just starting out, you can't do much better than this if you're on a super tight budget. The quality and construction are passably good and has much better off the shelf playability then Squires of the same price point.
