    No Allan Holdsworth?

    Ollie Halsall? John Cipollina? Carlos Santana?


    Me neither - until now... hardly "iconic"

    For me it's:

    Angus Young (my favorite SG player and a true blues rock master with killer vibrato)
    Eric Clapton (iconic tone with the "Fool" SG in Cream)
    Buck Dharma (great player who used the SG for a very long time)
    Duane Allman/Dickey Betts (both have used/use SG's quite often)
    Gary Rossington (plays it on one of the best and most played rock tunes, Freebird)
    Mick Taylor (love the footage of him playing the Bigsby'd SG with the Stones)

    Although some of the above mentioned guys didn't use(d) the SG fulltime, they still had amazing tone with them.

    Can I be #16 on this list of 15?
    Please.
    All it would take is 1 post from any one of you.
    It won't hurt anyone and would make me really happy. :)

    Angus does have one of the all-time great vibrato sounds , I'll admit. Very expressive.

    You know, if it came right down to it....that's the best technique you can have as far as lead playing. Just ask this guy...(and nah, he's not an SG player but he's still a killer guitarist!)
