    Immediately comes to mind are Angus Young, Tony Iommi, Pete Townhend, Eric Clapton, and Derek Trucks.

    We're on the 6th page and no one has mentioned
    John McLaughlin in the Mahavishnu Orchestra days?

    or did I just not see it because I semi skimmed the thread?

    I'm pretty sure McLaughlin was mentioned. If not, he is now!

    Many come to mind, but to me it's Krieger, Angus an Iommi at the top of the list.

    In the same vein as Iommi/Sabbath, Electric Wizard (Jus Oborn/Liz Buckingham) are another band/musicians I strongly associate with the SG.

    The only time I ever saw him with the Bogue was in a photo in a GP interview.
    Every time (many times) I saw them he played the white SG 6/12 double neck
    except in the very beginning when they were doing the jazz clubs in the village.
    It was a black LP Custom way back then.

    Went to see Paul Weller last night. Got some good shots of him and Steve Craddock with their SG's. Also there was a special guest who doesn't really need an introduction.

    I'll add another vote for McLaughlin and his double-neck SG!

    That looked like fun Delboy. Had to sound good with those SG's coming through the Marshall & Blackstar like that eh? Just the way like it! Sweet pics.

    Another band I always associate SG's with: The Bellrays!

    Either their original guitar player, Tony Fate:

    Or Bob Vennum nowadays:

    If you don't know them, they play a great mix of soul/punk/garage. Think Aretha Franklin fronting The Ramones :laugh2::

    It did sound pretty sweet. Was funny when Ronnie Wood came on, you could see Steve Craddock telling him the chords as they were playing lol.

    Tony Iommi and Angus Young were the first players I associated with the SG.

    The players that I had always associated SG's with:

    Frank Zappa
    Buck Dharma (when I first saw them he played a white SG most of the show)
    Frank Marino
    Mick Box
    Martin Barre
    Big Brother and the Holding Company
    John Cipollina
    The original Alice Cooper Band
    Woodstock era Santana
    Pete Townsend
    Duane and Dicky
    Krieger

    There are several newer players, but those are the ones that first made me notice. Dharma and Marino did more than anyone to influence me towards SG's.
