    So needed to give my new Epi SG a test out and this ZZ Top cover was a good vehicle for it.
    Billy's tone suits the biting quality of an SG imo :D

    Kel Martin does great vocals and Mike Dennis drum kit always sounds great.

    All guitar tones come from the new SG and the crunch voice of my Mesa Boogie Mark V 25 amp into a closed 1x12 cab with a V30. I also played Fender jazz bass and a bit of easy keyboards at end.

    Thanks Sid but it's the last time this SG is gonna be recorded with stock pups.
    I've ordered a set of Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates pups for it which will arrive from US soon.
    Then will sound a bit more like Billy G I hope :p

    The stock Epi Pro Bucker pups are quite ok for a mid priced guitar but this SG is like Electromatics in that it's got all the good basics for upgrades to give big improvement. It already has all mahogany woods, CTS wiring, graph tech nut, decent tuners and frets. And SGs don't need anything more except high quality pups :)
