Hello, my name is DeeBeeUs™, and I am an SG-coholic.  It has been 8 months since I last bought an SG.  

This one is a 2012 Standard P-90 (it’s exactly the same as a regular Standard, but has P-90s instead of humbuckers) and I LOVE it.  

PS: strap by Jaykco.  Just to show you how weird I am, I have bought 4 other Jaykco straps in this style, so all of my cherry Gibsons have the same strap.  :D 


If you were alive (and conscious) in the 80s like me, there’s a strong possibility that by about 1989 you were wishing that pastel colours would just go away for ever.  Thankfully three guys from Seattle single-handedly changed the dress code to plaid flannel an ripped jeans a couple of years later…

Feeling the way I do about pastels, I find it interesting that the colours of all of my recent guitar acquisitions look like they came right out of an episode of Miami Vice!


Make new friends but keep the old.  One is silver, the other gold.

That was a saying painted on the mantle above the fireplace in a cottage my parents used to rent for the summer when I was a wee lad.  Actually the entire house was literally covered in snappy little ditties and words of wisdom like that.  Let me tell you:  over the course of a dozen summers, I learned a lot by just reading that house over and over!

If I modified the saying to fit my 1987 American Standard Stratocaster it might go a little something like this…

Make new friends, but keep the old.  One is fiesta red*, the other Olympic White.
