    I use mine with a 69 deluxe reverb and a 66 Bassman. It is a great rock guitar. Tons of volume, dynamics, and it is very smooth. The tone knob can go from biting twang to mellow blues. I really like it with fuzz pedals. I play pop/rock originals, stoner metal, and experimental noise.

    I have both an SG Jr. and an LP Jr.

    My band is old school punk, '77, psycobilly....

    That said, I use both guitars for clean, chimey, slightly gritty work on the more Americana music that I am also working on.

    I use it if I want a distortion tone with more treble. I don't play anything clean with it because I really don't like the sound of a clean bridge P90. I like it a lot for its purpose, though, it dirties up VERY nicely.

    That is a sweet fiddle Carb!

    I play mine clean in to my Tone King and back off on the volume a bit from the fiddle. Keeps the strident artifacts in check. Especially fingerpicked like this, the tone is just beautiful..

    That'd be my main guitar, and I use it for just about everything. It's def my fav slide guitar as well!

    I play everything from classic rock and punk hardcore to straight up country. Highly recommended !
