Epiphone 1961 Les Paul SG Standard Aged Classic White

The Gibson SG made its first appearance in 1961 during an intriguing period. Interestingly, this coincided with a pause in the production of the Les Paul, a Gibson mainstay since its introduction nine years earlier.

The innovative SG design, marked by radical body contours and distinctive "devil horns," caught attention. What adds a trivia twist is that it initially featured Les Paul's name engraved on the truss rod plate. Despite this, it evolved into a distinct instrument, eventually rebranded as the SG (short for "solid guitar") in the '64 model year.

The SG would later achieve iconic status, with vintage models, especially the '61, demanding high prices in today's used market. However, owning one of these legendary solidbody electric guitars doesn't require a fortune. In collaboration with the Gibson Custom Shop, the Epiphone 1961 Les Paul SG Standard offers the tone, playability, and aesthetics of this sought-after classic at an affordable price.

Complete with a rich, vintage-inspired finish, meticulous details, and a vintage-style hardshell case, the Epiphone 1961 Les Paul SG Standard is a must-have for all SG enthusiasts.
