In July of 2013 I picked up a 2013 LP R9 VOS. Instant bonding and the love affair started. In April 2014 I sold a PRS. On a nostalgic whim, I ordered the 2013 SG VOS, ten minutes after the PRS PayPal cleared. I had only once before played an SG for about 15 minutes in 1974. Nothing about the SG felt right, but for the sound. It was a bit neck heavy and a bit sticky. The neck felt too long and reeked havoc on my muscle memory. For some unexplained reason I decided that I would not let the guitar beat me. So, I left the guitar out of the case to let the nitro cure. I polished the neck. I got a new leather strap with a roughed up underside. I positioned the guitar closer to my hip rather than more centered. Most importantly I just kept playing it. Throw in a little guitar specific EQ tweak on the Marshall and I am declaring total victory over the SG. Now the great sound is matched with great playability.
