    My 7 year old son just got his first Gibson and played it for 5 hours straight. We have a fun video of his excitement receiving it and joy playing it on his YouTube channel. Please feel free to share this anywhere you like.

    Wow! Now they just need to ditch the gig bag and get him a case. IMO no SG should be in a gigbag, especially with the long history of headstock incidents.

    Superb video. Would LOVE to jam with this (Angus) young guitar slinger.

    Adorable! He already has good taste.

    I will say, that looks like a pretty damn nice gigbag.

    But yes, any guitar with an angled headstock, especially made of a softer wood like Mahogany, should really have a hardshell case. It's not an SG thing though, any guitar with those features will be relatively delicate, compared to something like a Fender, which you could probably throw down a flight of stairs and it would still be in tune.

    Five hours at 7 years old of his own volition? Incredible. I don’t think I could have done anything for 5 hours at that age. Great job! (Parents and chid)

    I dunno the video seems pretty artificial. Like "reality tv" maybe?

    Hi Koaguilds. Thanks for watching Jai's video. I had a dilemma on what bag to get because you can't buy SG's easily in India and a friend carried this back for us from Los Angeles and he wanted us to get a gig back so he could carry it as hand luggage. I would have preferred a hard case, but then they would have thrown it around with the checked in bags. Anyway, I agree with your point. Once Jai is traveling more with the guitar I'll have to find him a hard case too.

    Hi GrumpyOldDBA. I did prepare a few questions for Jai, and I had an editor help put the footage together. I've put up longer, more 'original' videos before but I got feedback to make the videos shorter and more entertaining. Sorry if that came across as too artificial. Anyway, thanks for watching it.

    Hi Robert. Yes, I was shocked when I looked at the time. We can't get him to do his maths homework for more than 10 minutes. I guess that's the difference when you are learning something you are passionate about. Thanks for watching.
