Back in 1961, when the paint on the legacy of these two axes was still drying, Gibson put out an SG bearing Les Paul's name on the truss rod cover. Now, they're reissuing that rare axe thanks to the boundless talent of the Gibson Custom Shop. This 1961 Les Paul SG has definitive SG features, exceptional appointments including the Les Paul moniker, and powerful Custombucker Alnico III unpotted pickups. This guitar is for the Gibson lover who wants to own a unique piece of the company's history, in the form of a great playing, classic guitar.

Definitive SG Features
Though this guitar bears the Les Paul name, it's an SG to the bone. The horned body is shaped from solid mahogany, sporting classic curves around its edges. The set neck is also solid mahogany, cut into 1960 slim taper profile for a real vintage feel. The Indian rosewood fretboard is fit with hide glue, affording it first-rate tonal transfer throughout the instrument.

Exceptional Appointments Including the Les Paul Moniker
From top to bottom, this guitar is made to be a perfect replica of the original 1961 Les Paul SG Standard. Cellulose nitrate trapezoid inlays line the fretboard, laid between the 22 frets. It's got a nylon nut, along with Kluson single line, double ring tuners. The bridge on this guitar is a classic ABR-1 with lightweight aluminum stop bar tailpiece. Of course, the centerpiece of this guitar is the Les Paul name on the truss rod cover, setting it apart from all other SG models.

Powerful Custombucker Alnico III Unpotted Pickups
With dual Custombucker Alnico III humbuckers, you can obtain strong, bright tone - the type that's adored in a plethora of classic rock standards. Gibson's Custom Shop left these pickups unpotted to be totally true to the original, obtaining an accurate vintage sound. There's a volume and tone control for each pickup, wired with CTS 500K audio taper potentiometers and black beauty capacitors. There's also a three-way toggle switch which makes it easy to find your ideal sound.
