Hey buddy, the combo's great, it's the David Gilmour Sig model.
The amp sounds fantastic with truly stunning clean tones and frequency response.(classic British clean)
It's completely clean and will not overdrive(as specified by Dave) but it takes pedals very well, so i run it with a Hiwatt tube distortion pedal,Univox superfuzz NOS parts clone and a Watkins Copicat Clone.

The amp on its own is good for blues and jazz, featuring a normal,bright and linked input. Powered by 2x el34''s and 4x ecc 83s.
I have played a very limited amount of amps but heard lots...and for me this is Epic.lol

Wouldn't mind a nice Hiwatt combo but sadly dealers are few and far between in Toronto area ( is 1 official dealer in Toronto)and the price is a touch high for my taste right now... my 2001 below

There aren't that many UK dealers considering,which seem crazy to me, when you compare them to vox,orange and marshall etc.
Very nice SG Sir. I would love to rock some classic Live at Leeds WHO songs with it. [thumbup]

I love these faded SG Classics. You still get the P-90 deliciousness and bound neck.

My 2013 '50s Tribute SG in action recently…



As you can see, I added a pick guard and a Bigsby. Without a pick guard, at least, those were very sparsely-appointed guitars. But it had the P90's I wanted! [thumbup]

Ohhhh, OK...Twist my arm! [flapper] [biggrin]

Top to bottom: 2012 '61 "Satin finish" reissue, 2013 Captain Kirk SG Custom, and 2013 SG "Original."
Posted Image

Last (most recent) purchase: Late 2013 '61 "Les Paul" tribute SG, with "side vibrola."
Posted Image

All are very well "balanced"...i.e., no "neck dive," at all...including the one without the vibrato tailpiece. [thumbup]

On my "Original" I had the choice from 6 different guitars, my dealer had in stock.
I chose this one, because of the different wood grain pattern, and the darker finger
board, as well. LOVE IT!

The photos are of my guitar, the day it was purchased. Unknown to me, or my dealer, the Maestro
was faulty (bad tension spring assembly) initially...as you can see by the height of the handle.
I had that replaced, under warranty, via Gibson CS. They were very cooperative, and quick, too!

LOL...well, so far, it looks like you're winning! [biggrin] But, it's not really a competition,
as much as a pure love, of SG's...at least, for me! IF Gibson USA ever makes a Junior, and Special
like the early '60's versions (at a "reasonable" price) those would be my next, and probably only
other, SG purchases.
