    A good but very subjective question. I guess it is all personal preference..

    When someone asks me what does an 'SG' sound like, i forward them to this video. For me, no more need be said..he's got the 'tone' and talent IMO..

    I'll go along with Tony, but Pete hasn't used an SG for years and I was kinda going for current users.

    Great one Sarge, Leslie has always been one of my favorite guitarists and despite what you hear, he's really a nice guy. O0

    I'm going to go with Clapton's Cream era tone. I know some of that is Les Paul, Es-335, and Firebird, but the SG is in there on some of that.

    Leslie gave LESSONS for a long time, and if you lived on LINY, for a price, you could go and learn from him! :) He's said that the funny thing about the juniors is that for a long time no one wanted them, being cheap and below ones musicianship, and , I also remember, that back then it was the absolute cheapest at around $75 Tops, it was the only guitar he could afford ;) guess that worked out ;D

    Felix Pappalardi gave him his first one when they recorded Leslie's first solo album. Leslie told me he quit using them cause he kept breaking them.

    Strangely, I always associate him with the SG Jr., though I can't find any pictures of him playing one.

    I guess maybe it's because that's what he used when I first became aware of Mountain.

    I've seen him with an SG Jr, but rarely. He also used a Flying Vee with the neck pup removed quite a bit, as well as a Dan Armstrong for slide.
