When the Les Paul SG debuted back in '61 it was considered pretty radical for the time, with its thin body and no nonsense styling, it clearly focussed on raw power and playability. Quickly becoming a fan favourite with players like Pete Townshend, the SG found itself a permanent member of the Gibson roster. This Gibson Custom 60th Anniversary model recreates those cherished original models
This Gibson Custom '61 Les Paul SG Custom is just about as good as it gets! With the classic lightweight Mahogany body, finished in a beautiful Polaris White VOS, this SG is the same mega tone machine we all know and love. Thanks to the Nitrocellulose Lacquer this SG is able to breathe and resonate much more effectivley when compared to other finish types, and with the iconic '61 Long Guard pickguard this guitar looks the real deal.
The solid Mahogany neck is topped with a lush bound Ebony fingerboard, complete with custom block inlays this is a true vintage inspired masterpiece. Unlike normal Mahogany guitars, the SG is nice and light thanks to its thinline profile and simplistic design. With an authentic '61 thin profile, 24.75" scale length, a 12" radius and 22 medium Jumbo frets, it's comfortable and super familiar.
With a trio of Gibson Custom Buckers it offers bite and a super responsive, well-rounded tone. Perfect for players looking for the authentic Gibson PAF tone, these pickups offer clarity, definition and punch. Everything you would want from an SG. The iconic Sideways Vibrola tailpiece offers that classic appeal with excellent tuning stability.
The '61 Les Paul SG is one of the most infamous creations to come out of the Gibson factory, with it's radical design change and lightweight body it certainly altered the way we think about guitar, and what it means to be a Gibson.
