    Really love that cherry red, Gibson's most beautiful finish, IMO.

    Thanks RJ & M60. I'll probably trade one or two in for a heart transplant in 20 years.

    The SG is my favorite guitar of all time!

    I got my first SG in 1969, from Gene Simmons, whom I attended college with in the Catskills of upstate N.Y. Yes, the very same Gene Simmons of KISS fame. His name was Gene Klein at that time. I paid $150 for it. It was exactly like the SG Special shown below:
    [​IMG]

    I took the vibrato assembly off, and wrapped the strings around the bridge.
    It left 3 holes in the guitar. Pete Townshend did the same thing.

    I sold it...like a fool....for the same price I bought it for. I was fed up with
    the music business and planned on quitting guitar altogether. Little did I know...that you just can't do that!

    Next SG was a 1976 SG Standard with a badass bridge. Sold that one, too.

    In 1990, I got a 1974 SG Standard, and two weeks later, I bought a 1979 Gibson LP Custom Silverburst. Money was tight a couple of years later,
    so I sold the SG.

    Now, I have two. A 1999 Naturalburst Limited Edition:

    And a 2005 Special Faded:

    I shall never part with my SG's again!

    Hi Folks,
    This is my first post. I don't currently own a traditional style LP...(looking for a nice Burst re-issue), but I've had this '61 LP (SG) Custom since '73. It's in pretty nice shape has all 3 origional PAF's,pots, caps,and the wonky Vibrola tailpiece. The headstock has a pretty noticeable crack in the back.
    Nevermind, it won't let me upload my pics,lol::shock::Ohno:
