Buck Dharma from BÍC on the right -- very cool SG!  He was the inspiration for my buying this guitar.  My initial plan was to refinish it in white like Buck's, but it turned out I didn't have the money to have it done properly.

This SG was my main stage axe during my college music days, this great old guitar has received more than its fair share of abuse.  Yes, it does sound great, particularly through my old 50-watt Marshall!

Agents of Fortune!


2011 Gibson SG Standard

However, not being able to leave well-enough alone, I bought a real white SG Standard in 2021.  I bought the guitar on Reverb, and  I wound up putting a few easy mods on it like a new wide-bevel pickguard and some milk bottle Grovers. It is one of my favorites and I've already done some gigs with it.
