  1. Hello lets try to start this thread again ?
  2. After buying my ES 339 studio I figured I would get a Stratocaster for a different type of sound to go with my fenders blues Junior 4 and vox ac4 tv. The search has not been so easy. All the strats I played have sound too thin or they didn’t play right or they had other issues but I did play one today that was in really nice condition and it played really good but it just lacks the depth and the complexity of the ES339. i’m wondering if my ear has adjusted so much to this Gibson that i can’t really enjoy the single coil sound. Also I just bought a new GHS guitar chord and it actually made this guitar a little bit brighter. There are an amazing range that sounds I could get with this setup and I think that Memphis Tone circuit has a lot to do with it. I might give up looking for a Stratocaster at this point. cheers !
  3. The SG 3 which has the six way switch that I think is the most versatile of the other three Humbucker guitars. what is the purpose of having three humbuckers if you can’t combine a couple of them. it makes no sense to me
  4. Bring back the gibson SG thread please ?
  5. Any thoughts or comments .
  6. Thanks keefoman i will check that out
  7. Hello, This is the actual 339 that i have (above) and I wanted to ask if anybody knows if these “57 “pick ups in this guitar or four wire or two wire. I was told you could only split the coils on the Gibson 57 four wire pick ups but I’ve also read that the four wire pick ups are only sold in the aftermarket . thanks
  8. Yes this post is in regard to the forums change to eliminate the SG guitar thread. They ( gibson ) took out the SG guitar thread thread even though the Gibson SG is one of the most popular guitars in the world , made famous by several big names. But yet Gibson left in the Gibson amplifier thread which they haven’t made for 20 years . Also if i may say , that the Gibson SG custom are very expensive and even the in SG standards are $2000 now . I’m writing about this now because Gibson ran a full page ad with an artist holding a Gibson SG in the most recent copy of vintage guitar Magazine. i dont understand this . any comments ?

  11. Hey yall I did finally sell the Gibson SG three and I sold it at center for 1300 who then promptly sold for 1999 two weeks later . It is unbelievable the Gibson SG thread is gone. I think that thread was one of the most popular ones and then they left a Gibson amp thread in which they haven’t even sold for years. But if anybody wants to keep this thread going as you could see I’ve been running it for quite a while but I went to an ES339 so I hate to let it die . Thomas
  12. Real nice guitar bill welcome to the forum ! i used to live in otis ma ( off the lake) but just moved back to vernon ct area. enjoy that guitar tom
  13. The Sg has the “57” s and a slim taper neck . i really like the 339 but i miss my SG and have the itch for one. There is one on reverb but have the sell the 339 to fund it. The 339 is extremely versatile but I know SG would substain a lot better. any thoughts ?
  14. The range of sounds i can get between the new design of the fender blues junior 4 and the memphis tone control system are amazing. This amp rivals much more expensive amps i have played. I can get almost Princeton cleans and really nice classic fender overdrive. And the semi hollow body sound like the best acoustic-electric i have played. They really complement each other more then i thought they would.
  15. I bought it used but was never played , I have not done any mods
