Epiphone

Description

Made in partnership with the Gibson Custom Shop, this Inspired by Gibson model is Epiphone’s impressive recreation of one of the most important and popular guitar designs of all time—the 1961 Les Paul SG Standard. This Epiphone 1961 Les Paul SG Standard pays tribute to the legendary original, the very first SG. In 1961, the original shape of the Les Paul model went on hiatus, replaced by an all-new design that is known today as the SG or “solid guitar.”

Featuring an all-mahogany, deeply beveled double-cutaway body, this 1961 Les Paul SG Standard also has the fast-playing SlimTaper C-shaped neck profile of those legendary early Les Paul SG models. It comes equipped with a pair of Gibson BurstBucker humbucking pickups wired to CTS potentiometers and Mallory capacitors, a Graph Tech nut and Switchcraft output jack and toggle switch. A vintage-style hardshell case is also included.
