That’s one cool photo!! It makes me want to go find a cigarette machine for photo ops
This is my dream SG. I didn't know it at the time I traded for it, but after years of playing and comparison, I've never found one that played or sounded as good. This is the one for me!
That's a seller's motif on eBay for their guitar ads. There has been a couple really NICE SGs come and go from that seller in the past.
Hi Jason i am also a lefty SG player (1978 or 1979 cherry red standard). I thought I once saw an image of a left handed green SG on Bing so they may have made a few models. FWIW it would be nice if they would make a left handed 12 String SG. In 2011 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the SG, Gibson as you may remember came out with a limited edition 12 string SG, but I don't think they made any left handed models. I have seen some cheap Chinese made left handed models online on Alibaba but nothing from Gibson.
Cool! Thanks for sharing
HI Jason, as a fellow leftie, I may have replied to you already but I have found some pics of some left handed green SGs, although not sage green, on the internet. This one is "sparkle green" Custom shop. the one below is "Inverness Green" and may still be on sale at Long and McQuade. could not find sage green, though, sorry!
A TV Yellow Standard or Special, either USA or Custom Shop, just a great guitar to play and look at!
The one I currently own: 2002 Supreme.
I'd be afraid to take that one out of the case.
If I made a list, it would be as follows:
Something with a maple neck because it's a bit stronger. 24 frets, because I don't get why you wouldn't, the space is there. Satin finish, because I'm not a huge fan of the way high gloss feels on a neck. Coil taps, because why not? Slim taper neck profile. Black.
So it turns out, they made this. It's the 2014 SG Special. Not everyone's cup of tea, but definitely my dram of whisky. And one popped up for sale near me.
I'm collecting it tomorrow! I'm delighted.
Body: 61 SG but thicker.
Neck: 24 frets but slim like Gibson Nighthawk, volute and deep neck joint. Or a neck thru. Why not?
Neck binding: Oh yess pls!!!
Inlays: Abalone Black Sabbath Crosses.
Pups: Iommi John Birch.
Bridge: Old Good Schaller, Iommi type. But a Stetsbar is ok too.
EDIT: I actually have an Epi Iommi. Imo, my best score. But our dreams (or greed) never ends, right?
Dream? Gibson SG Angus Young Custom Shop VOS. Reality? Any SG Standard... lol I just got a 2018 LP Studio about a month ago and I'm really missing having an SG
Question for you, why the VOS over the ages/signed? Just curious. I bought the VOS model in 2009, mainly as it didn’t need the signature and the already substantial price tag.
But curious on your take, seems how we are talking dream SG, no budget, etc
I'm not big on aged/reliced guitars...it's cool to see an exact copy of Angus' SG, but I'd rather have one close to the way he would have bought it and put my own marks on it
Edit: In saying that, if I ever got to see any of the 4 Angus signature SG's in person, I'd probably **** my pants, aged or not because...well, Angus!
Yeah fair enough, I can appreciate that perspective. Well I hope for your sake you get a chance one day to sit down and enjoy one. They are beautiful instruments
Yeah, me too! There have been a few of the first Angus sigs (trapezoid inlays, lyre vibrola) floating around my area, hoping to get to play one of those someday
Gibson 1963 Les Paul Junior
Or any early 60s 3 pickup white custom
Where is it ?
I want it !
Yup, that’s a show stopper
