About This Listing

The Gibson SG is one the most iconic guitar models ever made. Despite its association with rock, and reputation, perhaps, as the tool of choice for rock’s most rebellious and just plain noisy players, it started life as the replacement signature guitar for Les Paul. Les Paul sales were waning, so in 1961 Gibson decided to update its range with a new, slim-line model. Though this was in part due to market trends, as always with Gibson, it had the kind of unique design that would set it apart from its peers for decades. Slim, lightweight and with a blisteringly fast neck, it immediately found favour with players. The SG Custom was introduced in 1961, slotting above the SG Standard as the top of the line model. It has been one of the longest-lasting variants of the SG, only shortly being discontinued from 1980-1986. In 1993, it became a Custom Shop model as part of the Historic Collection, and in 2000, it was redesigned for more historical accuracy. From 2014-2018, it was discontinued as a standard production model, but could still be ordered through the Made 2 Measure program. It returned to regular production in 2019.

Condition Report: An SG full of character and history. Mrs Les Paul's favourite. With a vintage look on the gold hardware, this model follows the original to the letter. She is in perfect condition having been purchased new from superstore by us. no dings or scratches and perfect frets. What really makes this guitar sing is the pickups. Clean sound or crunch, these pickups offer clarity and definition with a warm glowing tone. I really love this guitar and know the next owner will too.
