I am a long time gibson fan. my dad turned me onto gibson when i first started playing guitar, and it has been my favorite company ever since. i love both of my SGs more than any other guitar i have ever played. one of the SGs that i have is a Gibson SG menace, and i cannot find hardly any literature on this model/series. i have done countless amounts of research, and all i can find is that they made two different guitars in this series. the SG (which i have) and the Les Paul. all i want to know, is what were the running years for this series, and how many guitars were made. i just want to know how rare it actually is, because i cannot find the SGs hardly anywhere, and i cannot find the LPs at all now. i remember when they were still making them, and looking at them on the gibson site and wanted to get one. but by the time i actually had the money to get it, they were no longer in production. about a year and a half ago, i found mine in guitar center for $650. when i asked why it was such a low price, they told me it was because the pickups were not original. (they had been swapped out for the steve vai active EMGs, so in my opinion, that is an awesome upgrade
). if anyone has any info on the series, and would like to share it, that would be awesome.
