I see Elvis didn't want the sideways vibrola putting his guitar out of tune so he disabled it!
Here's another shot of Elvis with a double neck SG - and not your average double neck...
Kim Thayil (Guild S-100)
Cheetah Chrome and Jimmy Zero
Buxton and Bruce
Just like his father... Dweezil is also a big fan of SG's.
"Back to the guitars again, the main guitar since forming Zappa Plays Zappa has been my walnut Gibson SG. I've played it at every single Zappa Plays Zappa concert I performed up until the FZ "Roxy" replica was made by Gibson in 2013. The walnut SG was a real workhorse and I absolutely love that guitar. It is the one guitar that helped me transform my playing the most and I would hate to part with it."
Gary Rossington.... hell yeah!
Robbie Krieger of course...
Sister Rosetta Tharpe!
look at the switches on that thing.
YES! YES AND YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This one's not too shabby either. Though the headstock colour doesn't exactly agree with my sense of aesthetics...
Gee, i missed that, sorry. Here is another one to add to the collection...
Like father, like son... Go Dweezle!!!
One of my personal favorites (and a fellow Montrealer)...
Sorry if these were posted in the thread already
An old hero of mine. Probably just for the time of one pic - though he's played a double neck back in the days...
Almost makes you wonder if it's really Ace - not only is he holding a SG but he isn't wearing any of the ridiculous amount of rings he usually has on.
Jeez Louise!!! You guys and gals have forgotten the most important & the most beautiful SG player of all time! When the SG first came out, it was originally named after her husband until 1963 when the name SG (for Solid Geetar) renamed the Lester.
you know ....I think the reason why Mr. Paul did not really like the SG was that its really not a "Polka" Guitar at all..And lets face it...if you listen to this man back in his day...thats pretty much what he played along with a pretty big percentage of of the at least semi serious 6 string players that werent deeply imbedded into what could be called the bedrock of what most of us call country now...there ws blues and jazz,,,,but since i come from a basically whiteboy / american Indian setting in northeastern Oklahoma as a kid and around there the early 60s they had both kinds of music.....country and western. Well im swerving wide the jist of what i was gitting to,.to me the les paul has a deeper, more melodious toGuitar. In my old grumpy opinionated mind the SG has a much more brighter at one end and can have an aggressively bloodthirsty growl on the other end if you know how to stroke the girl to get her to sing. lol One last note here... I got a very early and constant intoduction to the blues thanks to the rebellious spirit that dwelled withen my mothers soul.... On any given saturday or sunday as a kid it was normal to every thing from Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin and many others of that Genre and then the next album be Howlin Wolf or maybe Leadbelly.....I was listening to people like Son House and John Lee Hooker before saw the Beatles on The Ed Sullivan show one wonderful night a long long long time ago......Thank God for mom I really miss a lot now but there is a whole world of music I can play that will bring back some very nice memorys,,, thats one of those things about music thats sorta like taste...hearing a song youve not heard in ages will almost always take you back to when you first heard it just like tasting some sort of food that youve not had in a long long time will do also....and then someone was talking about polka and I just finally said ...shut up and play your damned guitar............and i am........Adios Muchacho's.....
/I watched a vid of her and this same guitar a couple of days ago someone referenced in another forum section.....damn what a nice looking SG that is.....Wonder if someone in the family still has it or if its even still around at all......
