    I’d have the SG.. well I own a black Gibson SG Standard & it rocks!
    I’m another I’m afraid that don’t like the look of PRS guitars..
    They look ugly to me..

    I would go with the Gibson SG( been playing mine for 41 years), I have my Gretsch Streamliner to do the (semi) hollow body work! Good luck however you decide to go! IMG_20190530_235726.jpg

    I would love to get my hands on a Corvette.

    I have tried a PRS SE 30th Anniversary Custom 24. I loved the feel of the wide-thin neck, but just couldn't bond with the sound, so I let it go in a trade for another guitar.

    I'm not a fan of the neck dive of the SG's, so that's out for me.

    My heart says SG, but logic tells me PRS. PRS makes perfect guitars where everything WORKS. The necks are perfect. Fretwork is perfect. Intonation is perfect. Tuning stability is always perfect. They simply make perfect guitars imo. Matter of fact(I realize this is a Gretsch forum), if I were to do an endorsement deal today......I would want it to be with PRS.

    Corvette, it has a wonderful classical shape. The PRS is unexciting to me. The SG looks like a medieval device used to pluck eyeballs, I've just never been a fan of the look, too pointy and batty for my taste. They sound great though.

    I love my 1962 SG Les Paul with genuine PAF pickups. They don't make SGs like this anymore.

    I actually really like #1 There'ssomething unique yet classy about it that I really find appealing.
    It has it's own vibe to it without looking odd. For my taste # 1 gets my vote

    I really like my modded Electromatic Corvette, but the PRS and SG are both pretty sweet.

    If it`s not a "friday-model" I would go with the SG.
