I like Gibson SG's and double cutaway Les Paul's, but I don't like these! Mad

Good the more people that don't like them means less demand and lower prices for us that do...

I have played one years ago, it was the deluxe model with the gold hardware - great sounding and playing guitar and a lot more comfortable to me than a regular Les Paul because of the body shape being kinda-even on each side of the waist.

Seems Men At Work Really loved using these a lot in the early 1980's as well as Andy Taylor in his early Duran Duran days.

Very underestimated guitar.

Before buying my RS820 I was about to pull the trigger on a SG1000. Straight Les Paul killers.


The SGs are making a comeback.

I missed the thrad altogether, it seems.

For me, seeing a show featuring of Bruce Watson and Stuart Adamson both on Yamaha SGs (with muscle shirts and mullets; no less) really cemented in my mind the coolness of the thing in a 1980s context.

Some here might remember that I bought one primarily for use on tour in 2011 with Lee Seungwhan, when the 2nd half rock set kicked in and I could do boring power chords and chorus'd arpeggios for the next 60 minutes. And probably the best thing about it was the decency of the clean tones both full and split, so much so that the single coil sounds were some of my favorite for funky neck tones to date. Gainy stuff from either the super-headroom of the provided Twin Reverb used was quite a bit tougher for me and I had to rely on BJFE Dyna Red to deliver. Worked alright, but had better luck in the early part of the tour by far with the Cindicaster.





Sold it about a year after, and now there's one less black in the bunch.
