So I gave up my 2 PRS SE guitars that were heavily modded and were my mains over my Gibson LP Custom to pay for Phlebotomy School. I could have sold my SG to cover it, but I couldn't do it. I love the guitar to much. Reasons why you ask? Well its tone and playability is 2nd to none. Don't get me wrong I love LP style guitars a whole lot, but my SG does it all. The Burstbucker 1 and 3 pickups are amazing! Especially since they are my favorite pickups (any Gibson Alnico II Burstbucker) on the market right now. I changed the pickups in my LP Custom from the 496R and 498T to Burstbucker 1 and 2 pickups. The reachability of the upper frets is awesome. Especially since I have small hands. The coil taps let me have 7 different tones, making it sound like a Gibson SG or even pretty close to a Fender Strat. I play mainly a bluesy rock style lead for my Praise and Worship band and my church. So these tones are perfect. This thing can also rock it about without getting muddy also. I had an Epiphone SG Special and SG Custom a few years back and didn't like either (well I loved the Special since it was my 3rd guitar to own until I grew out of it and got a nice Fender Jap Strat). This discouraged me from SGs until I saw mine in a pawn shop in September for $465 and got more off since there was a back to school sale so I got more off of it (it was collateral for a defaulted loan so they were selling it for what they were out on the loan). Plus I have also loved Silverburst. My only complaint is that I use chord bends a lot and it goes out of tune fast with the Kluson style tuners. I will probably add locking tuners to fix that. This is why I love my Gibson SG. What's your story?
