Overview

1961 was a transitional year for Gibson which was highlighted by the introduction of a new Les Paul body style that would eventually become known as the SG and would go on to become the best-selling solidbody electric guitar in the history of the company. Thinner, lighter and overall more streamlined, with a slim, fast neck and double cutaway design that gave superior access to the upper frets, it was quickly adopted by a wide range of players.

This Gibson Custom '61 SG Les Paul pays tribute to that debut year, combining the classic body shope withan early '60s SlimTaper neck profile and the PAF-inspired sound of '57 Classic humbuckers. Crafted with care at the Gibson Custom Shop, this guitar features a very-limited-edition metallic sparkle finish. Includes hard case.

Features

  • Solid mahogany body with limited-edition metallic sparkle finish
  • 24.75"-scale mahogany neck with 22-fret, 12"-radius rosewood fingerboard
  • Dual Gibson Custom '57 Classic humbuckers, 3-way pickup selector
  • Tune-o-matic bridge witih stopbar tailpiece, Gotoh double-band green key tuners
