Mike McCready’s Gibson Jeff Tweedy SG

Mike started using this guitar around 2012/13 as one of his many live guitars. Mike doesn’t seem to have any preferences as to what songs he plays on this specific guitar, and most likely he just picks it up when he feels like it. In a short interview with ABC News in 2013, he said that he pretty much liked the blue color of the gutiar, and that’s the reason he bought it.

The guitar is an SG Jeff Tweedy signature model, featuring a mahogany body, Curacao de negro – pau Ferro (“ironwood”) fingerboard, a Lyre Vibrola tailpiece, and a 2 BB1 Burstbucker pickups. Although Mike noted that he liked – quote “pelham blue” finish on the guitar, the guitar is actually finished in what Gibson calls “blue mist”.
