    I just joined up, and it was suggested I come over here and introduce myself.
    I'm Sean. I'm a guitarist, singer, recording engineer, and producer, currently in Cincinnati, OH, by way of Rockford, IL, which is where I grew up.

    I've been playing guitar for ~25 years, in and out of various bands. I have one SG, a '73 Standard I found languishing in a Mom and Pop shop.

    Glad to be here. Seems like a nice group! Here's my baby:

    Welcome to ETSG.... again.

    The worn battle scares of a good SG should be displayed proudly! Beautiful!

    I use it a lot when I'm recording. I absolutely love digital modeling for recording - I almost never use an amp for that. For playing live, though, I've just never been happy with the "dynamics" I get out of DMA's. Live, nothing seems to beat the interaction of a guitar and a big old amp turned up loud.
    The stuff you can do with the VG-8, though, is just twisted.

    Yep; it came with a Bigsby. I do have it still, but I replaced it with the stop tail about ten years ago. It seemed like the Bigs was just killing my tuning, even if I didn't use it. It depends on the guitar, though. I've got a B6 on another guitar of mine that stays in tune like it was a locking trem.
    I love the way this guitar plays, and at the time, it wasn't worth much more than I paid for it (hindsight, eh?), so I converted it to a stop tail.

    Hey bloodspoint, you should go over to the 'We're Log(ging) Up The Time' thread and post your play/band time. We've been trying to see what kind of number we can come up with. We're over 2900 years right now...........

    a friend of mine's band has a guitarist with a strat fitted with one of those. ive heard him use it to sound like a flute and a harmonica to fill in certain parts. havent heard the full demonstration of what it can do
