    Very, very, very nice.

    But what's with all the Marshalls? Why not expand your SG vocabulary and play through a VOX or a Fender or even a Roland Jazz Chorus?

    Hmm, not a Roland Jazz Chorus in sight.

    had one that I sold to my keyboard playing friend. I didn’t like it at all for anything. I tried to but it didn’t work for me.

    Try an Ampeg VT22, it’ll convert you if you want that ultra clean spank

    I can’t compete with those photos Goldtone, simply jaw dropping. These are the trio of SG’s in my music room. Allow me to introduce Apollo, #1, and Amy.
    Sweet gals

    Brah those are AWESOME!!!

    My 1st SG was a ‘68 batwing I bought when I was 18 years old in 1984. It was a wonderful thing of beauty that I traded a mid ‘70’s Les Paul for. The SG was near mint ($800). I was sooooo in love with it when I saw it in the shop, brought my Les Paul to trade and would have been 100% happy to just swap. The shop owner says to me “what else do you want? A Les Paul is more than an SG”

    !!!

    I walked out with the SG, a cry baby, and a fuzz

    Man I played that guitar hours upon hours a day for 20 years before I stupidly sold it

    I still regret it and miss it dearly

    Welcome aboard Goldtone! That's got to be one of the best first posts - or looked at another way, what took you so long to join? You could've been here 2 guitars ago. :)

    I love that classic looking white Custom - is it the current model, if not, what year is it? Looks very clean (well, they all do!).

    Three seems to be the perfect number for SGs - I keep getting there, but never beyond it, (at least in terms of Gibsons). My current three:

    To be honest, my Fender Princeton Chorus is better than my Roland Jazz Chorus. Supposedly the Fender has the exact same chorus as the Roland JC, plus the Fender isn't as mid-rangey as the Roland and, of course, the Fender has that great Fender reverb.

    You have very nice gear, but a black mark against it are all those Marshalls. I am proud to say that I own eight amps...not one of them a Marshall!

    I’m at 22 amps, of the variety I listed...4 Marshall’s...might be time to lose the Marshalls?

    NMA; my gigging amp is a ‘74 Vibrolux Reverb, what’s yours?

    Back to SG’s...the Custom is a new 2020 Custom Shop ‘63 reissue. It’s a pleasure to play!

    Gigging? That's for philistines looking to make a quick buck out of the art of music. I make music not for money. I make music for music's sake. For art's sake.

    And when I do get together with the boys to make our art, I am John Lennon:
