    Think Rickenbacker 12 string, you think George Harrison or Roger McGuinn.
    That's an easy one.

    Think Gibson SG and what artist do you first associate with it?
    For me....

    Robby Krieger.

    Reasons:
    - rarely seen with any other guitar
    - extremely popular band

    Who is your choice? With whom do you most associate the SG?

    There's just a whisker between Tony Iommi and Angus Young.

    Hey Moose I used to stare at the back cover of Love it To Death and drool over those SG's. Still do actually.

    Frank, Robbie, Tony, Angus, Gary Rossington, Derek Trucks.... in no particular order.

    Would have added EC and PT, but they tended to change guitars like some people change hats... at least till both settled on a Strat.

    how bout this guy HAHAHAHA

    dang, was going to post up a pic of the jonus brothers with him playing an SG but I guess I already trashed the pic.

    really, Pete, Angus and Eric in his cream days all would be good ones.
