    Not really an influence because I just discovered her a few months ago, but what about Sister Rosetta Tharpe? Not the chops so much, but the depth she gave to the blues was just amazing. And yes, she played an SG.

    Mary Ford? Ah, nope. Pop Bubble Gum fluff from the 50's. I think the only time she "played" an SG was for publicity photos when the Les Paul/SG first came out.

    My biggest reason for buying an SG was because all that was available at Guitar Center left handed when I bought it were a couple of Paul's and a couple of SG's. The SG's were cheaper. I do prefer the SG over the dorky looking Paul, though.

    My favorite SG player? I would have to say Donald Roeser from Blue Oyster Cult.

    Sadly his white SG was stolen in the 1980s and never recovered. He's alo my biggest SG influence. Hell, biggest guitar influence.

    And although he doesn't play Gibson SG's, I do consider him and SG player. Pepper Keenan from Corroision of Conformity and Down. One of my all-time favorites.

    I saw a Heart concert in PA in 2015, in a rather intimate venue. Before playing 'Barracuda' Nancy Wilson switched to an old looking brown sg jr. Man, that thing sound daaaark!! It was a marked difference!
