    Exactly who I'd been meaning to add.

    ...& from Isbell's band, Sadler Vaden can be seen regularly playing his burst SG.

    Budgie.

    If you like listening to AC/DC’s singer Brian Johnson, he had a band before this, Geordie, they were glam rock. They had an SG player for some years only, Micky Bennison. I personally prefer their original guitarist Vic Malcolm and his Teles and Stratos.

    Here a video:



    But, there are a lot of famous SG players, has someone mentioned Rolling Stone’s and Beatles’ guitarists/bass player? Keith Richards and Mick Taylor of Stones and George Harrison and John Lennon of Beatles.
    Here the photos:

    Good heavens! Geordie! That takes me back to my youth!

    Nice picture of George Harrison with his ’64 Standard. This is the guitar I mentioned previously in this thread; the one he gifted to Pete Ham of Badfinger and which sold at auction for in excess of half a million dollars. I like the way George wears the guitar up high, in the 1960’s beat group style!

    I’d not seen Keef Richards playing an SG, nor Bill Wyman with his EB/SG bass. Mick Taylor, who joined the Stones in 1969, was a frequent Gibson user. His SG Standard was featured on the album cover for the “Get Your Ya Yas Out” live album. Here is an outtake photo featuring Charlie Watts, a donkey, some drums and said SG:

    Here is Mick Taylor, playing his first ever show with the Stones in London Hyde Park:

    That SG looks so cool and from seeing this in my early teenage years, I always wanted an SG with a Bigsby. So a couple of years ago when I got my ’61 RI, that is what I fitted:

    I wonder what happened to Mick Taylors SG? Also, what kind of daft price might it go for if auctioned now?

    Finally, in the course of my “research” today, I came across a YouTube clip of the Hyde Park concert. Initially I was not going to post it. However, I changed my mind; in addition to The Stones, you get enthusiastic African drummers, a half-hearted stage invasion and Hells Angels doing a daft dance. What’s not to like?

    My user name here is NMA. It stands for New Model Army -- the best unknown band that ever existed.

    New Model Army have neen around since the '80s and are still making great music. Thirty-five years! For all that time, the frontman only used SGs. They are one of my favorite bands and because of them I had to own an SG.

    Not a typical SG sound, but it serves the song:

    Wasn't Baby Snakes a luthier-built SG copy? Or did Frank play actual SGs too?

    Loves me some Zappa, no matter what guitar he's playing.
