In 1961, the Gibson Les Paul Junior model morphed into what we now know as the SG body shape, a sharp double-cutaway guitar which was a drastic departure from the original Les Paul design. The all mahogany SG Junior sported a single bridge position P-90 pickup and an unbound rosewood fretboard with dot inlays. The models displayed here feature a factory vibrola/vibrato tailpiece, though the option seemingly was never offered in Gibson's catalogs. Models from 1961 and the first half of 1962 actually say "Les Paul Model" on the headstock, even though Les Paul himself had no input into the design of the guitar.

The wraparound tailpiece versions of the SG Junior can be found here.

Notable SG Players:  Tony Iommi, Angus Young, Derek Trucks, Jeff Tweedy
