dawg w.b. bro

yes little tweaks to amps can make all the difference in the world.

i just have that line 6 spider 4 monster but gibson had posted how to tweak amps for overdrive using amp controls so i followed the directions and its amazing just moving drive and volume around the different sounds you get.

also there was a new jimi hendrix video on tv showing unreleased material but there was a short loop of him trying trying a sg 3 custom 67 maybe....

can you see if that photo is online and post it here if your not to busy ?

i have no internet and only a phone here...

rock and roll

Is this it? I think it is a '67 and he is playing Red House?

No problem charlie.

Drop some photos here we like to see them.

Oh my sg 3 has a regular serial number. very odd .. but it plays like butter and growls like a tiger.

The pickups take time to adjust to get them right though.

Not to totally derail this thread but Charlie Brown, if you could only keep one of those SGs, which one would it be? They all look really nice.

They ARE All "really nice!" Luckily, I don't have to make that decision. But, IF
I did, it would probably be the "Original." It has the nicest wood grain, and a
great neck (as they all do). The tone of all of them, is Awesome, so that's not
really a consideration, in this hypothetical scenario. [biggrin]

Personally i like the three pickup versions.

When you engage the bridge and middle or bridge and neck the tones are really great...The "57" pickups are one of the best in the world i think..

Roll and Roll at its best...

C.B. how many SG ' s do you have ??

Just the 4 pictured! I had several in my youth, in "the Sixties," that were sold off,
when I stopped playing 40 years ago. (Long story) When I started playing again, in about
2000, I looked at SG's again, but didn't really care for the narrower beveling, and lack of
horn tapering, that was "Standard" at the time. In late 2012 and 2013 Gibson went back to
the wider beveling, and traditional horn tapers, that were the Hallmark of the line, originally,
and I couldn't resist, any longer! I only hope they'll continue that trend, and re-introduce
a "Special" (P-90's) and "Junior" with the same beveling and horn tapering, in the near future.
Otherwise, I'm "good=satisfied" with what I have now. [thumbup] [biggrin]

The first actual "electric guitar" I ever played, was a '61-62? Les Paul (SG) Junior, with a
single "Dog Ear" P-90! It belonged to the older brother of a good friend of mine, that played
drums. We wanted to start a band, but I didn't have an electric guitar (at that time), so his
brother loaned me his Gibson SG Junior, and his little Gibson Amp, as well. (He had stopped
playing them, by that time, and they were just "collecting dust.") Our classmate, and bass
player also had an EB-0, at one point. So, SG's are very much a part of MY "Rock & Roll"
guitar playing history.

Hey c.b.

Thats amazing because i had played when younger but somehow lost.
interest and then started again about the time i bought the sg 3 and started this thread.
I love the p90 sound and martin barre used( jethro tull ) and leslie west and countless others. the p90 just has that certain raw tone to it.

The sg 3 faded was also a amazing bargin when released ( 490 pickups)
And a stripped down version of the sg 3 but those guitars ripped and i have seen them as low as 500 on ebay...great bang around guitar as its faded.

I still regret selling the one i had..

LOL, yeah, that happens. People glam onto a thread, for awhile, then it disappears.
Or, they get busy, and don't post for some time. It's a very "fluid" situation, here.
But, we're still here! [biggrin]

Cheers,
