Purchased at a dodgy gas station years ago, this 1997 Gibson SG has been Chris Hannah’s No. 1 for over a decade. Hannah modded the SG with a mystery pickup in the neck position (perhaps a Bare Knuckle) and a Bare Knuckle Alnico NailBomb at the bridge. He also added an EverTune bridge for tuning stability. Strung with Ernie Ball .011–.052 sets, the SG stays tuned down a half-step with the low string dropped to C#. For picks, Hannah uses “those yellow ones,” which PG thinks are Dunlop .73 mm Tortex Standards.
