New fav, Britanny Howard, Alabama Shakes!
Early Carlos hit me like a brick wall. Clapton, Townshend, so many great SG players over the years.
But that P 90 sound from early Carlos was so rich to me. Pete's power chords really shook the house though.
I do admit that Frank Marino open my eyes too back in the day...
I really liked Steven Stills with his SG stuff with CSNY had the right voice for their sound.
GOOD CALL Lefty, that is a GREAT BAND, and a Britanny is a First Class player, and a First Class person. LOTTA talent in that band pal.
I know that, technically EDS-1275 isn't exactly an SG, & I'm aware of the differences...but... with how many variations of SG's there are, I'd count it as one!! It's commonly referred to as a "Double-Neck SG" by more folks than call it by it's correct name anyhow.
With that in mind, I think folks have mentioned...
because of this, but I'd also like to toss out another such SG Double-Necker whose name I don't think I've seen here yet, the mind blowing...
I always thought this guy was pretty impressive in the 80's.
Atomic Tommy M of UFO, played a very modded SG.
That's my order of preference, but shuffle them any order and I'd still be happy.
Ahhhh. Mahavishnu Orchestra. Every time I listen to my " Birds of Fire" CD I say to myself "what the heck am I thinking. I can't play this thing for crap!"
Did anyone mention Alex Lifeson and his EDS 1275? Apparently he gave it to Gordie Johnson from Big Sugar many years back. Hmmmm. ... Gordie Johnson, another favourite of mine. Check out Big Sugar!
Finally Paul Weller gets a mention. Not an out and out lead player but he knows how to get the most from his SG.
George Harrison as well for the Revolver album. Great tone.
Tipton was indeed a beast on the SG.
Frank Zappa, Pete Townsend, Derek Trucks, Paul Weller and Mike Campbell for me.
Angus might be a straight pentatonics guy but he's also one of the most underrated of rock guitarists.
New Member here. Zappa is my fave SG player.
I have to admit that there's something really raw about Blackie's playing in The Hard Ons (on a very beaten up SG) that I really like.
Not much of a fan of Henry Rollins 'singing' this song, by the way.
one of my favs is Trevor de Brauw of Pelican. big early influence on my playing. wore out my "the fire in our throats will beckon the thaw" cd. those guys churn out some epic compositions
Dave_Death, I completely agree about Blackie's style, saw the Hard Ons 20+ years back in Boston and they were incredible! Any SLADE fans up in here?!? Gotta love Noddy's outfits (and guitars):
Buck was my inspiration....................from the first time I saw them backing up Alice Cooper on the Billion Dollar Babies tour.....just a few years ago...........LOL
Thats the guy current right there!!!
