    Glen Campbell was an Ovation guy, right?

    yeah he has a signature model with them. funny thing, i just did a quickie search to see if he ever did play an SG and on his website gear page he uses a pod xt ;D

    i wonder what his patches are like?

    seems like he's a strat guy too

    that would make a fun thread "players you least expect to see playing an SG who actually do"

    I guess the dumbest thing I have heard about SGs is that they are satanic guitars... when everybody knows that is only the red ones :D

    Well, the SG spawned this forum, so I guess it's retarded ;D








    No, I'm sorry. I'm very new on this forum so I will try to behave - just can't help myself... :uglystupid2:

    This wasn't really retarded, but it was funny: a salesman at Guitar Center told me he used to be really into SG's, but he realized that fat kids look stupid with them so he switched to a Les Paul. ;D

    Get the 339. Looks like a 335 only smaller. Everyone will think it is a 335 and it will make you look bigger. :roll:

    copypasta from wiki:

    Tipton has used numerous guitars over the years:

    These include a 60s Fender Stratocaster up until about '78.

    During '78-'79 he used a black Gibson Les Paul Custom and he started using a modified CBS-era Fender Stratocaster with Dimarzio Super-Distortion (humbucking) pickups.

    For the Screaming for Vengeance tour he added a chrome pickguard. For this tour he also played a Gibson SG, which, apparently, he spray-painted black himself. The SG also had a chrome pickguard and stock PAF humbuckers.

    Around '84 he switched to a Hamer Phantom GT model which was fitted with one EMG humbucker, a Kahler tremolo and one volume pot. A signature model of this was developed and sold to public from '84-'86. Tipton still uses this guitar model

    notice the horrendous buckle rash
