Gibson SG: Difference between revisions

* [[Mike Ness]] of [[Social Distortion]] played a black SG in the late 70s and early 80s, with the Social Distortion logo on it, as well as a white [[Joan Jett and the Blackhearts]] bumper sticker. It can be seen on the cover of the compilation album ''[[Mainliner: Wreckage From the Past]]''.
* [[Mike Oldfield]] used a modified 1963 SG with a [[guitar synthesizer]] pickup to control a Roland GR300 Module for some of his guitar sounds on his 1980s albums such as 1983's ''[[Crises (Mike Oldfield album)|Crises]]'' (including "[[Shadow on the Wall]]"), 1984's ''[[Discovery (Mike Oldfield album)|Discovery]]'' (including the title track) and 1987's ''[[Islands (Mike Oldfield album)|Islands]]'' (including "[[The Wind Chimes]]") as well as single-only tracks from this period such as 1984's "[[To France|In The Pool]]" and 1986's "[[Shine (Mike Oldfield song)|Shine]]".
*[[Tommy Bolin]] when in [[Zephyr]] (from 1968 to 1971) in 1970 used a '63 SG made.
* In 1992, the Gibson Custom Shop introduced a "premium plus" reissue of the '67 SG. There was an estimated run of 100 of these instruments. It included three '57 humbuckers, ABR-1 bridge, ebony fingerboard, slim tapered neck and a mother-of-pearl block. There were no certificates issued from Gibson on this particular run.
* In 1998 Gibson introduced a rarer, higher-specification version of the SG Special—The SG Special Limited Edition. It came with an ebony fingerboard, factory gold hardware, and two gold array Humbuckers, and included a Gibson gigbag.
