Used Gibson Custom Shop 1961 SG / Les Paul Custom VOS
Gibson Custom Shop 1961 SG / Les Paul Custom
VOS / Historic Spec Reissue
Rare Black Finish w/ Gold Hardware and Maestro
Used! Just in on consignment!
Just in on consignment! This SG Custom Reissue from the Gibson Custom Shop is built to Vintage Original Spec (VOS). It plays and sounds great! It’s incredibly light, loud and resonant acoustically. Plugged in it has all the classic, vintage Gibson electric guitar character you would expect from a pair killer PAF style Humbucker pickups. Like all our used / vintage gear this has been tested for functionality and priced to move. Sold as-is. What you see is what you get. Original case, certificate, etc… included. These SG Custom Reissues are a lot harder to find than the typical SG Standard Reissues. Especially in the Black finish with Gold Hardware. Ultra cool!!!!!
While the vintage Gibson SG was originally intended as a redesign of the Les Paul model- and addressed what many players considered to be the main issues (weight and upper fretboard access) Les Paul himself didn't like it. So Gibson took the Les Paul’s name off the guitar and new Les Paul design was renamed the SG (for Solid Guitar). Even though Les Paul didn't approve, the Gibson SG has been loved by countless guitar players and become one of the most iconic, hard rockin' electric guitar designs of all time.
Like all VOS (Vintage Original Spec) Series instruments, the SG Custom VOS is handcrafted for comfort and playability in the Gibson Custom Shop. The construction, neck profile, hardware, and electronics are period accurate, and a special nitrocellulose finish treatment gives it the patina of a gently aged vintage guitar. This guitar may have an additional scuff or small ding, but no serious issues, damage, repairs or wear. It was collector owned and enjoyed carefully. And it RINGS LIKE A BELL!
