Eric Johnson sometimes plays a 1964 Gibson SG. "I've been using that for more of the Gibson tone," he said in this Premier Guitar interview at (1:55). "I've kind of gotten used to making the shift [between Fender and Gibson] over the years. I remember when I first started playing Fenders it bothered me a lot. It was like, "this is really hard to play" but now it's a little easier to make the shift," he said.more
“The P-90s really filled up a lot of sonic real estate. The humbucker gives you a very pointed attack, and the P-90s are much more wild and open.

Per [The Doors Guide website](http://www.thedoorsguide.com/music/equipment.html) - a website that aims to be the ultimate resource for one of the most innovative bands to come out of the west coast music scene in the late 1960s — THE DOORS": "Robby Krieger plays a red 1964 Gibson SG Special with P-90 pickups on the first two Doors albums and for a bulk of the group's live shows from 1966-1970 (later with an added tremolo bar). Sadly, this legendary guitar was stolen and remains missing. I have the guitar's original serial number so anyone who believes they've found it can contact me for confirmation. Note: Robby sometimes incorrectly refers to this as a '64 Gibson Melody Maker."more
