The guitar player in Motion City Soundtrack only uses SG JR's.

Daren from System of a Down/Scars on Brodway uses SG's.

Fred ex Taking Back Sunday and now The Color Fred guitar player uses specials.

Micah from Hawthorne Heights used to use SG's mainly but now he uses an array of Gibson's.

One of the guys from Across Five Aprils used a faded special for a long time, not sure if he still does.

Jerry Cantrell from Alice in Changes has a few.

 

There is way more but I can't remember names right now.

 

Do I count? [thumbup]

 

I'm a touring guitar player and a girl came up to me in the mall yesterday and said she loved my playing. Thats the first time thats ever happened outside of a show and I was sooooo stoked. (I called half my family to tell them)

Jerry Garcia (believe it or not) was known to use an SG from time to time.

The late, great John Cipollina (Quicksilver Messenger Service) loved the SG and played them exclusively for a time:

I swear I saw a picture of Bob Dylan with an SG somewhere...

 

There are plenty of others.
