    the beginning of the solo seems a little wrong to me

      Here's every reason I need to love SG's of that breed:

      Stop saying 'pups.' Pick. Ups. Come on, it just sounds dumb.

      Guitars:
      2009 PRS SE Singlecut
      2008 American Standard Strat
      2006 Highway One Tele
      2010 Martin DX1E

        Amen, brother. I saw The Who at the Isle of Wight on Palladia earlier this week and it completely erased my memory of the horrible Super bowl halftime show earlier this year. Confirmed my belief that the Who were the best rock band on the planet from (roughly) 1969 to 1973. And Townshend never sounded better than when he was playing the SG Classic.

          Wow, thats the most entertaining instrumentation I have heard in a Petty song in a long, long time. Just wish the vocals were a little catchier.

            That whole album is great. That's not an SG Classic--It's an SG Special from a time when they really were "special." But I understand what the thread is all about. SG's with P90's and spartan ornamentation are great guitars.

              I hear you doc. I'd love to have an original Special like that too, but watching and listening to Mike Campbell rip on that one makes me appreciate my Classic just as much. "P-90 heaven."

                I'd love an SG Classic (or even moreso an old Special!), but I'm not really an SG guy, and it wouldn't get enough play time to justify the price (unless maybe I found a really cheap beater Classic used).

                So my take on the concept, bought for a Benjamin (+shipping) new, will have to do.



                I'm fine with dat.

                  This is as close as I come... LTD Viper with BG Pure 90 pickups.

                  It's a great player and it sounds outstanding, but it ain't no real SG... and I'm FAR from a Gibson fanboy.

                      Buy a cheaper version, like Cratz and I did, to tide you over.

                      The thought of you on crying jags is unbearably unpleasant.

                          I bought a second hand Townshend sig SG a couple of years ago (the general release version; not the limited edition one). Straight out of the box it felt perfect in my hands, which is really saying something because I've never owned anything like an SG before. And those P90s sound so tasty!

                            my super real greco 1980 ss500 sg special copy...



                            It's amazing. And it's the budget line...just like gibson intended them..
