Sold! Gibson SG SR VOS 1961 Les Paul Custom Shop Cherry, 2006

Sold!  Gibson SG SR VOS 1961 Les Paul Custom Shop Cherry, 2006

Here’s a wonderful piece that takes us all back. This is a Gibson SG SR VOS 1961, a reissue of the reworked 1961 Les Paul Standard with Lyre Vibrola and Cherry finish. This was the second version of the SG build – the initial production run had a side-to-side vibrola tailpiece. That was quickly replaced with the Maestro Lyre Vibrola, and this form was the SG Standard until the mid 1960’s. By 1963, the Les Paul name was removed for contractual reasons.

❌ SOLD ❌ Gibson SG Custom Natural Mahogany, 1974

The Gibson SG Custom appeared in 1963, though originally as the new, slim double cutaway 1961 Les Paul. By 1963, Les Paul’s endorsement with Gibson had ended, so his name was removed. Featuring the now-familiar solid mahogany body, the SG Custom differs from ‘lesser’ SG models with bound neck and headstock, ebony fingerboard with Mother of Pearl block inlays, gold hardware, either a Vibrola or Stop tailpiece, and often three pickups.

❌ SOLD ❌ Gibson SG ’61 Reissue Cherry Red, 2007

❌ SOLD ❌ Gibson SG '61 Reissue Cherry Red, 2007

The Gibson SG ’61 Reissue is a very practical guitar. It’s got all the key elements – an interesting shape, good balance, tonewood choice that provides a wide-ranging rich tone, light weight and full sound from a pair of humbuckers. First introduced as a new version of the very poorly selling Les Paul model, what became the SG appeared at the end of Gibson’s license agreement with Les Paul and co-incidentally with Paul’s divorce. Not wanting to further complicate that legal matter, the license agreement was ended and the 1960/61 Les Paul was quickly renamed the SG, for Solid Guitar.
