After a bad run of sales for the Les Paul, Gibson decided it was time for a design rethink. The result was the Les Paul SG, which, very soon, would become the pure and simple SG. With a thinner body, the new SG was considerably lighter than a Les Paul, and the new design allowed much easier access to the higher frets. The SG became the instrument of choice for players such as Robby Krieger, Pete Townshend, Tony Iommi and Angus Young.
