Gibson Custom Shop 60th Anniversary 1961 SG Les Paul Standard VOS Cherry Red (341)
1961 brought some big changes to the Gibson Les Paul, most notably a sleek, all-new, double-cutaway, all-mahogany body design that would later be renamed the SG. This Gibson Custom Shop model recreates those cherished originals, complete with a Sideways Vibrola, a side-pull action vibrato that is similar to those found on models from the early 1960s. It also has a bound Authentic '61 Thin Profile mahogany neck, Kluson tuners, an ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge, two Custombucker pickups, CTS vintage-taper pots, and Black Beauty capacitors.
