« Yeah 60's »Publié le 08/09/11 à 23:00
During that period though we had some great sounding bands and some genius amps builders and guitars builders just starting to inch their way on to the main stream. Some like Gibson and Fender had been doing is for years and exploring new ideas, perhaps with the help of drugs..who knows. All in all is brought items such as the classic SG guitar that is a formation of the Les Paul.

I have always like the sound of P90's. They have a real organic and full tone to them that make them just magical. This is a nice addition to the sound of this guitar in general. The Sg has a familiar tone to its originator the Gibson Les Paul but has its own thing going on as well. First off you get a lighter body wood so the the sound is going to be a Gibson tone but a little more crisper and focused in my opinion. Next you have the ability to reach the upper register and play the higher frets with ease where as the Gibson Les Pal would struggle a bit getting to the 20th fret.
I love the way this guitar sound and fits in the music that I play. The tone is just sweet and th feel of the guitar while different to the Les Paul has a nice comfort that O am used to form playing Les Paul's for years.
These are very affordable guitars for the working ma. At new you can pick these guitars up for right at around $799. That is a steal of a price for the features you get with this tone machine. I would recommend playing this to get a feel for the sound before buying. These are a little different than normal single coils and humbucker and different than a Strat or Les Paul.
