This is my first guitar. It’s a Gibson SG200, an entry level Gibson from the early seventies. It originally came with a strange pickup selector, switching system and two single coil pickups. But after playing it for a while I felt I needed a bit more oomph, so I had the local guitar shop, in Walthamstow, route out a hole and stick a Gibson humbucker in it. I loved it and couldn’t put it down. It also became obvious as I got a little older what a cool thing it was for my parents to get me this for my sixteenth birthday, as they weren’t exactly loaded.
