all original and very minty 1961 Gibson Les Paul/SG Standard features
the classic sideways vibrato and two screaming PAF (Patent Applied
For) pickups. It will ship in its original and rare brown with pink
lining hard shell case. At 48 years of age, this rocker still has
the same original vibrant cherry finish that it was born with…it
hasn’t faded to brown as many of these guitars have done.
The two blistering PAF humbucking pickups give this guitar the killer
sound that you just can’t copy, especially with any new guitars.
They read 7.66 k ohms for the bridge pickup and 8.45 k ohms for the
neck pickup, both measured at the output jack. As you know, the potentiometer
date codes are on the sides of these potentiometers. We were able
to see only one date code clearly, and it reads the 40th week of 1961.
The solder and all electronics are original and untouched.
