    I've never plugged one in, but they play pretty well.
    I've noticed on a TV commercial the bassist from the Jackson 5 used one. :D I think that's kinda funny since SG style guitars/basses are more commonly used in metal. If I had the money I'd go get one but I'm poor and need a new amp.

    SG style basses(Gibson EB's) have been around a lot longer than metal.

    I have an EB-3, but it's a Gibson (yes, it's older...31 years, to be exact)...weaksauce to EB-3's. I think they sound extremely muddy. I only keep mine around 'cause it looks cool.

    I think they r pretty nice looking basses, and they sound like "old school", I mean, you´r not going to get a brilliant-Flea-like sound from one of those, but if you think thats the bass for you........ go get it.......

    I´m really thinkin about one EB-3, just to compete with my brother´s Gibson SG Gothic :D
