Don't Tempt me! LOL SG's can be an "addiction," like Les Paul's are, for some other people!
I just LOVE the "Horny Little Devils!" [biggrin]

I agree I think yes the SG s 3 are the best and here's why.

First of all I like the neck and weight better then the less pauls.

You and I think many will agree that the 57's pick ups are the closest thing to The paf that have ever been created

490 pickups sound a little brittle to my ears where classic 57 has a nice smooth tone but when you push them to the edge you get that slight brown breakup from them.

And of course you have the six different options on a SG three that you don't
get with many other guitars

I have actually thought to put in a stellartone on mine to increase the amount of variations but I do like the way it sounds so I'm not sure if I want to mess with it.
Cheers

Same SG he played on **** Cavett. Safe to say he rocked it a bit. The LP I have seen him with also, thats rare indeed. Here's Mama Rosetta Tharpe a fine SG-3 addition too. [thumbup]

Well, actually it's a 61 Les Paul Custom! SG's at that time, were moniker'd "Les Paul" guitars, until about '63,
when they were changed to the SG moniker, due to Les Paul allegedly not approving of the new design. There is some
controversy, about the real reason he wanted his name removed.

But, Sister Rosetta Tharpe's guitar, in that clip, is a "Les Paul Custom," with sideways Vibrola. She played a
Barney Kessel model Gibson, as well.

[thumbup] I was watching her with the BK also.

You know whats kinda odd about the whole guitar fascination. I always thought one day I would buy and own a 61 LP Custom RI. Might be a "yet", don't know, but for sure I always liked that piece. After listening to Hendrix rock it I like it even slightly more. [biggrin]

Hello charlie and welcome golden

Charlie your right about the dislike that les paul had for the sg according to what i have read, but gibson did not remove his name until a couple years after also according to different sources.

Black sabbath got me hooked on the sg custom.

Heres a better photo of hendrix with the "les paul"

Cheers !

Tom the Les Paul argument, not very good imho. Just saying, I can't qualify that. Listen if he played a 59 or 58 or 54 55 56 or 57 LP then I think you might have a point that Les for some reason blah, blah, blah the SG. But the truth is he played what a 72 recording? I mean come on how do you qualify all that in relation to the SG?
