    Not sure if anyone put this up earlier, but I love the tone Thom Yorke gets playing his SG's.

    Good call, his use of the SG on in Rainbows was the reason I finally got round to buying one...

    Alex Rosamilia from The Gaslight Anthem. He plays a Jr, and the 1970. Both very cool.

    Mike McCready from Pearl Jam also uses SG's quite a bit. He plays a little bit of everything.

    Townshend has gotta be one of my favorites too.

    Pete Townshend was my first guitar hero so he's waaay up there on my list. I believe he never sounded better than when he played a SG roaring through cranked Hiwatts.

    Others include..

    Angus Young
    Dickey Betts
    Mick Taylor
    Derek Trucks
    Eric Clapton

    In no particular order of preference:

    Eric Clapton
    Derek Trucks
    Mick Taylor
    Angus Young
    Gary Clark Jr.
    Duane Allman
    Tony Iommi
    Pete Townshend

    And probably quite a few other guys as well!

    Lots I didnt know of, lot of players I know of but not that they were particularly SG players.
    Ones I know as SG players that run far and deep for me are:

    Eric Clapton - didn't he go all Stat / Fender by 1970 or so and definitely by Derek / Layla?
    Angus Young
    Pete Townsend - when did he switch to Fender?
    Robby Krieger
    And now realizing Mick Taylor was an SG player.
    You on the leeest!

    I always want to learn more of who is playing what guitar parts in bands like the Stones, etc. and on which type of guitar or pickup type and position, etc.

    so many great SG guitarists out there. No way I could just pick one but I guess if I had to pick 3, they would be:
    Pete, Eric, Angus. I could easily rattle off 20 that I really enjoy listening to though. Just for fun... I will add one SG player that I bet nobody else thinks off... hint... he played with Eric and his SG had really fat strings :dude:

    ORF, did one of his buddy's fat stringers not have any frets?
