    Hi

    So the question really is what professional players use the Gibson usa SG standards as in not vintage and not custom shop versions... are there any players out there that you actually use Gibson USA stuff?

    ....can’t tell if the question is serious or if trolling. I’m gonna go ahead and say YES. There are professionals using Gibson SG Standards....?

    Look into punk and metal and you'll see thousands of professional players with all kinds of regular USA line SGs

    I can't remember the guitarist anymore but there is a YouTube movie of a professional guitarist who is playing an SG Faded.

    Actually, he plays a prototype Dickey Betts signature SG that is based on Betts' old SG that he gave to Duane.

    That and the Dweezil ones are CS. Nothing wrong with that but I think the OP was looking for Gibson USA players.

    That's an actual '61 in that video, but the guitarist also uses an SG Classic :h5:
