    74SG.jpg controlSG.jpg pupSG.jpg My first SG is what I believe it to be a 1974 Special, all original. Love the feel of the neck and how it plays. My other electric is an R9 Lester and while I enjoy the LP, for three hour gigs, I am looking forward to the much lighter SG. Still sorting our the difference in pick ups, etc.
