In my opinion' date=' when it comes to SGs three pickups are too many and one's not enough. No offense but who's buying these things and why?[/quote']

 

Like Malcolm Young said, "I never seemed to figure out what the other two pickups were for." :-$

I actually haven't bought one, but I modded my 65 Gibby MM years ago - 2 mini-humbuckers and a DiMarzio - any one or combo selectable by two 3ways. Why? - tone variations. Back in the day (and even now) many modded their guitars with with extra pickups and switches to get the sounds they wanted - phase switches, coil switches, kill switches. But I do get your point - virtually all of these production models come with 3 of the same pickups - still, you can get tone variations with a switch selecting between three positions.

This simply means that you have not met the right one - yet. (sg junior/sg les paul junior)

But I agree with you about the sg custom.....

 

This is true. I loved my ol' '63 SG/LP Jr. They have a lot more power than you'd think' date=' and that one sound is definitely "good enough" for whatever you wanna' throw at it.

Never question the king of colossal riffs, either!

 

3 pickups on a Gibson can sometimes feel like a waste, because the tonal possibilities with that middle pickup aren't exceptionally mindblowing.
