    NGD! 2020 SG Special

    I've wanted one of these guitars since shortly after I sold my early 60s SG Special several decades ago. Along the way, I've acquired other Gibsons that were close -- some more than others -- but they just never were the same thing. In about 2000, I bought an SG Showcase Edition -- a very nice...

    Ever Seen Hendrix Play an SG?

    So, I was browsing through some videos at YouTube today, and ran across a video recording of the Hendrix Experience, recording in a small venue in Sweden in 1969.

    Cooltouch: Google -- it's a wonderful thing :)

    Welp, I'm new here, and this is my first post. I was googling info on an SG I own just a short while ago, and ran across this site. How cool. I've been playing guitar for over 40 years. Yup, I'm a graybeard, literally. My first =good= guitar was an early 60s SG Special. Twin soapbars, one...
