Steve Howe

Steve Howe is another white SG doubleneck user.

Steve Howe is an English guitarist, known for his work with the progressive rock group Yes. He has also been a member of The Syndicats, Bodast, Tomorrow, Asia and GTR, as well as having released 19 solo albums. For nearly 35 years, Steve Howe has been at the forefront of guitarists in popular music. Actually, simply referring to Howe as a just a guitarist is limiting. In addition to being a songwriter, he plays more instruments than just the guitar. If it has strings and a fretboard, Howe has mastered it and recorded with it at some point on one of countless albums he's been a part of as a group member, solo artist and special guest. Steve Howe has, over the last 50 years assured his position as one of the world’s pre-eminent guitarists. His uniquely fluid and creative style helped propel rock bands Yes and Asia to superstar status. Throughout his career Steve has included pieces for folk and classical guitar in his repertoire, with compositions such as ‘Clap’ and ‘Mood For A Day’ becoming perennial favorites. Howe's influences are a mix of classical, jazz, country, pop and rock.

"Best Overall Guitarist"

Howe has been voted "Best Overall Guitarist" in Guitar Player magazine five years in a row (1977–1981) and was inducted into Guitar Player's "Gallery of Greats" in 1981. Howe "elevated rock guitar into an art form" and "helped define a new style of music known as art rock." Rolling Stone ranked him number sixty-nine on their list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of all Time in 2003.

Howe used the white SG doubleneck extensively on tour in the seventies on songs like “And You And I,” and “Starship Trooper.” The guitar has been retired from live use.
