    I'm trying out two Derek Trucks SG's. I previously had a 2014 and liked the tone. Except for the truss cover, I don't see any differences between the various year models. Would anyone like to chime in?

    1999 PRS Custom 24, Tortise
    2017 Fender Strat, Eric Johnson, Sunburst
    2003 Martin D-28, Marquis

    1965 Fender Deluxe Reverb

    OX Amp
    Line 6 DL4 looper
    Echoplex

    The DT models started production in 2012 and continued through 2015. I was interested what if any differences existed between those two years. I used to own a 2014. Thanks.

    Thanks Chick! It is a Jeff Tweedy Signature SG that was released (I believe) the same time as the Derek Trucks. There's more info about it here:

    Unfortunately, I no longer have the guitar. I'll have to update my avatar with the new acquisition when it's ready...
