love and theft
From Burnside of Tight Solid:
I honestly can't describe how much my guitar, which goes by the name Shaniqua, means to me or how much I am feeling this loss. She was one of the few things I had left from the money my father left me after he died. I am a one guitar man so with the loss of Shaniqua I am now without an electric guitar and in no way have the ability to buy another one. If you see her around, in the words of Morrisey and James Brown, "please please please" send her home to me. No questions what so ever will be asked, just pure jubilation.
I miss her. A lot.
2005 Black American Gibson SG Standard
Tuned to Open E
White Skull Skates sticker on the back
New graphite bridge which I had fitted for extra BIG strings (the bottom string is a 56)
New tuning pegs and machine heads (I can't remember the brand but they are shiny silver 1/2 circles)
The paint has been chipped off down to the wood on almost every "devil point"
Pick ups had been replaced but I didn't like them so I put the originals back and also had some work done inside but doubt that matters in the description
Brown leather hard case with "Gibson USA" written on it with the combo set to 666
The inside of the case was plush beautiful bright pink
At time of theft it held my Boss tuning pedal, several patch cords, a love note from Adrienne, some guitar strings and maybe a receipt or two
Black Vinyl Strap
I doubt this will make any difference but please if you see any black SG's around take a second to have a look at them and send my baby home
in love and sadness,
it's back in his hands! rejoice!
