1961 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Guitar


Here we have for sale one of those fairly early production SG bodied Les Paul Customs that were from the last era of PAF production. Introduced in 1961 as a complete replacement for the Les Paul, the new design was thought to be a more modern solidbody guitar, with sleek beveled edges and two sharp cutaways. By late 1963, the Les Paul moniker was dropped, and the SG (or Solid Guitar) became an entirely separate model. The SG Custom carried on the high-end tradition of the Les Paul Custom, and featured an elegant ivory finish with gold hardware. This is an über cool and killer sounding 1961 Gibson Les Paul Custom that weighs just a little over 3.5Kg.

The guitar shows very cool wear all over the body and neck but there are no cracks, breaks or repairs. This guitar has a dual cutaway Mahogany body, mahogany neck, ebony fingerboard, three PAF humbucker pickups, two volume and two control knobs, side pull vibrato tailpiece, small pickguard, 24.75-inch scale length, set neck and comes with the original brown leather hard case.

This guitar comes with original Gibson Hard Case.
