    Which sound do you prefer? And of course, the SX is 1/2 the price.

    I'd get either the Thunderbird or the SX. Seriously, though, do what you want. (The PJ will probably be more useful sonically - I'm not at all impressed with an Epi Thunderbird's sound, as much as I think they're cool-looking.)

    Get both. Not a huge cost and chances are you would never need another four string again as you would have almost any sound you could possibly want covered.

    IMHO, I'd go for the SX as it's quite a bit less expensive and looks better than the T-bird. But I never have been a fan of the way the Epi T-bird looks.

    heres an idea: the sound i want is similar to that of the Gene Simmons Punisher. i heard it on a video of them playing at the Quilmes Rock Festival it reminded me of a sort of growly deep warm abrasiveness... it rawked!! i figure since the punisher has an active EMG PJ config i figure maybe if i buy an SX and put emgs in it. i also want a white pickguard.
