NGD: Gibson 61 SG Antique Ebony

Post by blackstratblues »

Just got this in yesterday, having heaps of fun with it so far. 2007 '61 RI in Antique Ebony with Gold Harware.
The Gold is a little bling-y, but not jarringly so.

It sounds full and resonant, and those 57 classics are pretty nice into the Marshall.
Gonna leave it stock for now, it makes for a nice counterpart to the Strats.

Black & gold, always reminds me of the 'classy' smoke of the 70's - John Player Special. I don't think you see them these days.

Don't let that put you off though, your guitar looks great :D

Nice looking guitar! Can we talk about that amp though, looks like it’s had some mods?

you JUST KNOW some Tory wanker has thought of this idea already. Probably getting the inspiration whilst fucking a dead pig.

Late 70s JMP, modded by John Suhr to Mike Landau spec, including his effects loop. BG recently re-tolexed it as the original had quite a few tears.

It’s one of those Belkin multi-plug things, it accommodates plugs from any country. Pretty handy to have around 🙂
