    Lets hear it for all this GIBSON SG players, eh ? From Angus to Tony Iommi to Frank Zappa and back...

    BUT, My favorite SG tones are from none of those guys, but I still admire them greatly, BUT my fav SG Tones are from Donald 'Bhuck Dharma' Roeser on 'GODZILLA' and Glen Buxton's Lead Tone on Alice Cooper's 'No More Mr Nice Guy'. Both Guys performed the original studio versions of those particular songs w/1969 GIBSON SG Standards.To this day those tones still make the hair on my neck stand up !

    For me, those are the two HAIRIEST SG Tones I have ever heard and I strive, and get real close, for that F# tone on the opening of 'GODZILLA' and the lead tone in that song (as well as NMMNG) as well. 'Bhuck's SG, I believe, was stolen a while back and Buxton's(RIP) SG, from what I hear, is in pieces.....

    So whose (and on what track) SG Tone is/are the ones that you fellow SG fans admire/try to emulate most?

    Derek Trucks gets great tone. Tom Bukovac uses a lot of SG.

    Clapton’s Cream tone is foundational.

    Off the top of my head - Clapton, Page, Mick Taylor, Santana, Robbie Krieger, Angus, Iommi, George Harrison, Pete Townshend.

    Can't pick just one!

    I'll probably have to add some more later...

    Btw, I think Buxton's white custom was restored a few years ago. :cool:

    Badfinger for sure.

    BTO's Blair Thornton for his lead tone on Not Fragile.
