    So Ice Blue is just right then - SGs are best as blues guitars imo.

    Have you ever thought of just sanding it down to it's natural wood and just lacquer it ? It would be different ......

    Good thought. This being the cheapest Epiphone you can get(It came bundled with an Epi starter pack) I don't have high hopes of finding a nice piece of wood underneath the finish. Then there's the scraping of the poly...

    Sonic blue is in my first post. Daphne has a hint more blue to it.

    You just posted the two worst examples of their representative colours possibly in the world.
    As a matter of fact I’m pretty sure that first one is surf green.

    LOL

    Maybe these offer a better representation. Taken from Rothko & Frost, the nitro manufacturer.

    I'd chose Prince Purple. Jag Green is nice, too, and, of course, Sonic Blue is a fantastic colour.

    I'm with Englishman on this. While a black SG can look smart, I'm for cherry red -- and I mean that proper lustrous deep see-through cherry red that lets you see the woodgrain beneath.

    I like a transparent finish but it will be a solid colour finish to cover the grain and most likely a multi-piece body.

    Thanks Ricochet for posting this ! I'm interested because it shows the color difference side to side... ;)

    A+!

    There's a big chance that it's Poplar or Basswood underneath, and these don't have too much grain after all, so any see-through wouldn't show very much.
    I'm having a bit of a hard time seeing all these colours with the black dogear and pickguard. Black and cream might work, though.

    OK, I know this is gonna sound REALLY stupid, but I saw the first few images and I was thinking "yeah that's pretty cool I guess." Then I saw the shot of the back of the headstock and the way they tapered the black paint down, and I was like "I need this now!"

    I'm pretty simple.
