RUSH’s ALEX LIFESON: ‘I Never Liked The SG.’

Rush‘s guitarist Alex Lifeson talked to The Rock Hall about his experience with the Gibson SG guitar. Take a look:

“The iconic guitar for me is the white 355 that I got in 1976. That’s on so much material, from when I got it right up until the last album. I have a 59 reissue Telecaster that I bought in – I think, 1983. I traded an SG for it.

“I never liked the SG. The neck always felt like it was this long [very long]. But that Telecaster, I took the finish off the neck, so it’s raw wood, and I’ve probably written 80% of my arrangements on that guitar.”
