What it looks like from here

My hand, coaxing a few chords out of my old beater
Its an early 80s Gibson SG
Bought it a few years ago for $400.
Cheapest Id paid for a guitar in a long time.
Yea thats the paint wearing away in places on the neck character
I put very high end P94 single coil pickups (another $200 still cheap) in it and wired it my own way.
The back pickup is just a resonator
gives it a bark like a telecaster but still retains the old Gibson bottom end I like.
She can crank blues licks that would make BB smile

other sizes: small medium large original auto

sg??? DROOL!
Only in the US could you find one for $400! ;p

I really like the SG's, a very cool looking guitar. I used to call it the Devil's guitar because the cutaways look like two horns. Anyway, cool shot.

Great image, it looks especially good in B&W!
Larry Ahern07-May-2004 15:07
Yea Vinay ... some of my favorite chords are simple ones ... moving from this in any position on the neck the the next lower major chord has a very powerful effect ... I use it a lot in intros.

wonderful shot Larry... you've captured the mood really well here.
Guest 07-May-2004 14:11

Vinay07-May-2004 14:06
