Gibson SG purchased from Best Buy

Great guitar. My Gibson SG has a solid feel, powerful sound thanks to it's alnico pickups. I find it easier to hold, since the body is thinner and lighter. The neck is perfectly straight with no buzz. The guitar has an electronic auto tune system that tunes it very accurately most of the time. Relatively easy to play.
