the correct answer is...

any guitar you don't care about damaging if/when the strap screws strip out of their holes.

of course if you use long (2") eye screws the odds of this happening are slim.

SG's are pretty fragile at the heel and at the headstock. Don't know if I'd want to throw one of those around. I agree with finding a beater guitar.

I actually think because they're so neck heavy that can be excellent guitars for throwing...but if it slips off of the strap somehow, kiss it goodbye.

That happened to me when I was playing my friend's Faded Special. Just a little ding on the headstock was all.

So, it's my belief that tone is in the soap.
Thank you and goodnight.

I'd say one of those cheapo tele or strat kits where you can replace the neck easily. I guess a bolted neck SG would be fine. I've heard that there are some bands that have a cheap tele with decent pickups for the last song so that the guitarist can trash the guitar, and actually the only thing that needs to be replaced is the neck or body, and all the hardware is fine.

Thought about it, but probably not a good idea to trash a guitar in a church setting!

If we're talking about pulling The Who and trashing a guitar, a good choice would be a Squier Bullet or an Epiphone Junior.

It'd be cheaper....


Well, bottom line is, use something you don't care about.

Hence a kit strat or tele where the whole thing costs about $100 and you can easily replace the neck or body because you put it together so you know how to put it back together.

'Cause it looks cool, duh!

I'm still unsure of it all, but as far as my thinking goes, i've made suggestions so that while you do trash the guitar, it doesn't stay trashed.
