Elliott Easton - SG Special
“By the late ’60s, the guitar of choice for suburban rockers like me was the SG Standard or Special,” says former Cars and current New Cars guitarist Elliot Easton.
He finally got a ’69 or ’70 SG Special around ’74, and played it right up through the early days of The Cars. In 1980, he found a mint ’63 SG Special at Strings and Things in Memphis, and, two years later, he got a ’65 SG Standard with the horseshoe Bigsby.
