I have owned many guitars but I have fallen in love with an SG.
True love! SG's rock!
Since I just got this sucker last week and took this picture yesterday.... :AOK
Here's a nice pair...
The '63 Std I still have. The '61 Custom, well, I needed an amp fix and traded it straight for a 50W plexi and vintage JMI AC-30 a couple of years ago. The PAFs were already gone. I still wonder if I should have made that trade....
P90's and the nicest color on an SG.
Because they sound awesome, look awesome, are easy to play, have great upper fret access. And my SG makes me breakfast every morning.
For me, they are elusive. I've come soooo close to closing a deal on one on many occasions, only to have the owner flake out at the last moment. I think the badass look of them attracts many dumbass owners.
for what they do, they're pretty much unbeatable....here's my '61 (alongside a '58 special)
SGs are great, but they are the ice cube of guitars. whatever they say, they sound pissed off.
This is my cheap Faded SG. It's my main workhorse. It sounds awesome, and the neck is just about perfect. I absolutely adore the faded finish, which makes the wood look like a chunk of mahogany off some old piece of furniture, and it's very thin and not sticky.
I'm toying with the idea of replacing the default pickups with SD Seth Lovers or Lollar Imperials.
Here's my Standard, the only humbucker in the harem. Upgraded with RS kit and custom wound pups.....
What model is that? I've never seen one like it. Beautiful!!
Here are mine:
I have five of them. They are great guitars to play. I've been told by band members that my attitude is different when I play an SG, and they prefer me playing one.
One of my '68 Standards,
My '62 LP/SG Special,
I have two - one of them has Duncan 59/JB but I want to try something else and this is what I have:
Lace Sensor Dually Humbuckers - I can split them into single coils
Lace Sensor Alumitone - I can split them into single coils
Lace Sensor Drop and Gain - I can split them into single coils
TV Jones Power trons
So what shall I try?
i have custom historic and a high end 59 historic if i had to pick between the two i could not. sg rocks hard
I've got two and I've owned three and I dig them. I like the tone differences when compared to a Les Paul and they're much easier on the back on shoulders. When I'm not playing a Les Paul, there's a pretty good chance I'll be playing an SG.
I love my '06 SG Standard, it plays flawlessly and sounds sweet. ( terrible pic, it's not that red )
