Gibson SG

Gibson SG's History:

In the 60's it seemed that the Gibson Les Paul was not so popular to compete against the fender stratocaster and the fender telecaster. So the Gibson Guitar Cooperation company revolutionized the old les paul into a new inovating, cheaper, thinner, lighter and practical guitar. Mr. Les Paul was offended with this new style of guitar (which included 2 horns) so he chose not to put his name on the new guitar. So, the new guitar was called SG (or solid guitar). This guitar was created in 1961 so its first model is the Gibson '61 SG.

The horns definitely give it a bit of a devilish look. So how, exactly does one play the double neck guitar?
