Back in my loud rock'n'roll days I always wanted a cherry red Gibson SG Special. It was all to do with the Groundhogs song, Cherry Red, and Tony McPhee's SG, and of course Pete Townsend's love affair with cherry red Gibson SG Specials that I saw so many times in my youth. That craving went away a long time ago and never returned. I like the look of the Vintage VS6V, it looks very close to the real thing.
I bought a Vintage Fool a couple of years ago-designed and painted as a replica of the SG Eric Clapton played round the time of Disraeli Gears. I am not sure if its the same guitar as an unpainted Vintage SG copy. Its certainly very powerful.
My favourite SG tones came from the West Coast of America in the mid-late 60s. Two great albums that feature them are Live Dead by The Grateful Dead and Happy Trails by Quicksilver Messenger Service. But a lot of West Coast bands of that vintage seemed to play them-Big Brother, Country Joe and the Fish, Santana also come to mind.
well looks like the wheels have temporarily fallen off it arrived today very well packed in a hard case yet this was the damage..seller claims it was done in transit yet outer box and hard case were undamaged
Ah, back in our loud rock n'roll days...! Fugazi, the band that really blew me away every time I saw them play, they had the two singers playing guitar, an SG versus a Rickenbacker, both of them looked beautiful to me, would have been over the moon with either. Never got one though. It isn't blues but there's still a place in my heart for this :
Right so different Vintage VS6 purchased ..have a mate up north picking up for me.. I plugged the damaged one in tonight and stuck it in OPEN E ..very impressed ..can see why the make good slide machines ...
