    He's playing a really unusual SG variant that Gibson built for him specifically to his specs and sold a tiny number of them only in Texas for some absurd amount of money. Here's the info on it:

    I thought I saw a Gibson logo on that guitar, it would have strange for a custom builder to have added that.

    The Texas-shaped control cavity is awesome though. The Colorado and Wyoming models would be less impressive.

    some SG players have more money than brains...

    When ever I see something like this, $30,000 for one instrument,
    I always think of what else a guy could have if he had that kind of
    coin to blow.

    If you've got $30,000 you can squander on a whim, or $37,499
    for a used version, you could have two really fine instruments,
    a really fine amp, and a decent car to drive to the gig with.

    Or you could have five decent instruments, two good amps and
    a serviceable mini-SUV to haul them around in.

    Oh and a good strap.

    and on and on.
    Me, I could probably equip a whole band for that money,
    making wise and cagey uses of the funds. And get a
    rattly old chevy crew van to haul everyone in. And a good
    spare tire. And a hotel room for us all to crash in, sprawled
    all over. Now that's rock an roll.

    But the Hawaiian one would be fun.

    John Lennon, of the well known songwriting duo Lennon-McCartney. You may have heard of him. I hear the guy with the coffee (or should I say tea) cup is also fairly well known. :smile:

    Looks like he knows what he's doing. Could go far.

    That's Abbey Road Studio A

    While I agree with your post, don't forget Billy Preston was the only outsider credited with Beatles songs or sessions.
