    Johan Segeborn has an amazing YouTube channel where he mainly demos vintage Marshalls and does different kinds of comparisons. Today he uploaded this one, I think you'll enjoy it



    Which one's your favourite?

    1967 SG Special.
    Clear and focused P-90's.
    No nonsense SG ready to rock.

    Jesus Christ, the tone he's getting out of that Marshall is phenomenal

    The ‘Original’ SG sounded the best to me.

    Funny how all except the later Custom sounded more the same than different. P90s, T-tops, PAFs, whatever, that SG honk and bite comes right through.

    That 1968 Custom though...sounded good but compared to every other guitar, it sounded weak and, well, polite. All the rest were rude boys for sure!!

    Absolutely! Check out some of his other videos, he's an expert at getting his Plexis to sound amazing. Great player too!

    I agree, it's one of my favourite looking ones, but it certainly sounds distinctive... and not in a good way.

    That one's awesome! I think I prefer the '65 special though, that thing's gorgeous and sounds badass too

    Might be mine too, but I don't know if it's because it's the first one we hear, we tend to use that as a reference. Like Paul says, it's not that big of a difference between them, specially through a cranked Marshall!

    Gimmie any of those, they all sound pretty much the same to me.

    Why does the Hendrix Custom sounds so anemic?

    67 Special, 63 Jr - something about the stop tailpiece and P90s.

    Agreed, I wonder if it has to do with the middle pickup. Maybe there's a wiring issue and it's coming through a little, resulting in that thinner, pseudo out of phase sound? Or the magnet in the pickup could simply be losing strength.

    Because logically, it should sound identical to the "Angus Young" '69-ish Standard, since they share the same pickups.

    And I would give my vote to the "Angus Young", but they all sound fantastic in their own way.

    Love Johan's vids. His delivery is so dry.

    My favorite is when he's doing the intro in a tree.

    Those SG's were all killer. I think you might be correct on that 3 pickup Custom. My Firebird suffers from that out of phase issue with the middle pickup.

    ‘69 Standard for me. Raw and gritty but clean at the same time. One day!!

    You're kidding right... which one?? They are all awesome!

    If I had my choice it'd either the '64 or '69 SG Standard. But, I will say there's something about that '62 Special :smile:

    I'm an AC/DC fan but I say the "Original" SG. However the "Angus Young" has that incredible sound which never seems to end, like the one in the intro of "Shoot to Thrill", and I LOVE it!!!
    But this...
    ... is true! All beautiful sounds and SGs!
