Devon Thompson can’t live without her Gibson SG – Music Connection Magazine

Dark Los Angeles alt-rocker Devon Thompson told us about her love for her Gibson SG, when she premiered the new video “Straightjacket” exclusively with us.

Devon Thompson: One piece of gear I can’t live without now is my Gibson SG. I’ve been playing big Hollowbodies for a long time and randomly picked up an SG from Gibson to try it out and it changed my life.

Because I have a smaller build, I can play the guitar myself much more easily. Especially because it sits just right in my stomach. It made it easier for me to get around on stage and I find it handles solos much better than the previous guitar I was using.

Because I mainly play as a trio, the guitar I use is very important. I was so surprised at how well it complemented my songs. I definitely won’t be without this guitar again! Another side note: Another device I love is the Julia pedal from Walrus Audio. It has the perfect chorus and adds so much sparkle to certain songs.
