    Very nice.

    Mini hums and a nice walnut finish.

    Looks lovely.

    I see it as either your tastes are changing or expanding. Its all good either way. I think it is more of a problem when when one is not open minded and sticks with something regardless anything.
    Still to me, it always comes down to "whatever inspires you to play".
    But now you've really opened the door to a huge guitar collection.....

    I think it's weird NOT to own a Gibson. Congrats!

    I'm delighted with this guitar's versatility. I've really only every thought of them as hard rock/metal guitars. I'm having fun playing chime-y folk-rock on such a tough looking guitar!

    That's what I'm afraid of!

    Nice SG! I always think of Live at Leeds for the ultimate in SG tone.

    Great Jazz guitar as well. Keep her.

    I would bet that a lot of ST
    Members own a Gibson.

    I do

    I like the wood tone, gives it a whole different vibe from the typical wine colored SG.

    It's taken some time to get a handle on the buckers. At first they were so hot and unruly I was kind of wondering if I made a mistake with this guitar. I lowered the pups and that really helped me get more useable tones for the kind of music I play.

    A friend of mine who's more familiar with Gibsons suggested I roll back the volume knobs on the guitar and set my amp accordingly, and once I did I was able to get some really sweet, almost acoustic type tones, very natural and warm. Dig in a little with the pick and things get hotter (but still very sweet) right away. Very versatile, and very different than my many Fenders. I've got a lot of experimenting to do!

    Congrats! I have a number of Gibsons. Nothing too pricey (by Gibby standards). I like mini-humbuckers, too. But currently my only guitar with minis is an Epiphone Les Paul Deluxe.
