I am almost 67 and playing forever. I currently own a 1969 Gibson SG that I bought new as a 15 year old kid and has been my #1 all that time. For many years early on it was my only guitar. As I gigged more I bought many different models and brands to use as a second guitar. I have had Gibson, Hamer, Fender, Squier, Parker, Schecter you name it. While many were okay they never did it for me like my SG. My SG can be used for anything and sound great. I never found that in any other guitar. I have come to the conclusion that instead of trying other brands again maybe the real answer is a second SG. I guess some people need a house to fall on their heads to wake up lol. Anyways, my budget would be in the $1200-2000 or so range which should give me a good choice in the SG world. I have heard great things about the 61 reissues as well as 61 standards (I think). Anyone else out there with a great SG suggestion and/or experience owning more than one. I would like something on the lighter side if possible. What are some of the differences? Thanks for any insights.
