    In my mind this jam is Lunacy. Its a song I found online after joining the forums, so thats why im making a thread about it. Anyone have a song that reminds them of their guitar like this? It was recorded years before I ended up with the guitar.

    Listen to Crescentmoon by steelehead on #SoundCloud


    Btw I was listening to \m/ Master of Puppets \m/ on the way when I traded my 100th Anniversary Epiphone Les Paul Custom for the guitar. Hence my GAS induced acquisition has been named such, and she rocks!!

    Almost all the Black Sabbath songs remind me of my beloved Iommi SG. On the other hand, this song, especially this live performance triggered my SG love too:



    When I listen to this song, I remember my repenting and reverting to SG guitars. Sometimes I am playing this song and praying for Gary Clarke Jr. I am thankful to him.

    Here's one I played not long after I bought my '07 SG special.
    I always wanted to record this song, but never had the right instrument
    until I became an SG owner.

    I'm not the world's finest guitarist, but did the best I could here.
    The SG made it possible. When I got my new (and first) SG, I played
    it incessantly for months, and found myself playing parts I never
    thought I could.

    This recording epitomizes my SG, in my hands anyway.

    I'm playing through my Vox VT-30, and stomping my Boss Blues Driver
    for the solos. Song by Peter Green.

    "Luhrstaap" - New Model Army

    You may think the tone is unremarkable, nothing to write home about, but for me it was something cool and something I didn't have. None of my guitars could really get this gritty bite, so I bought my SG. An SG has been the guitar front and center for the band New Model Army over the past thirty years of their existence. They are a gritty band and thus they make use of the SG. I bought my SG because of New Model Army and the intro to the song below (and the rest of the song) explains why.
