1963 Gibson SG Les Paul Standard
One of the last of SG/Les Pauls! Here's a great guitar from Gibson's Golden Age. Fans of Gibson's SG know these guitars for their killer necks and great tone. The solid mahogany body has the classic devil horn outline. The wide and medium shaped mahogany neck has a bound rosewood fingerboard with pearloid inlays. Dual patent sticker humbuckers deliver killer tone. The neck pickup was rewound by Lindy Fralin and the covers appear newer. These early patent stickers are identical to a PAF and only differ on the stickers. A side pull trem and no wire ABR Tuneomatic bridge keep it rock solid. The bridge looks to have a few newer saddles. The side pull trem is not known for its performance but many players can attest that it offers great sustain and killer tone. It's had a different set of tuners in its lifetime and picked up some holes. It now has a recent set of repro Klusons. Pots and electronics are all good. The original cherry finish looks awesome and compliments the nickel hardware well. A great guitar with killer vibe!
This SG plays and sounds great. The original frets have had a few dressings over the years but play well. The neck is straight and the action is good. The pickups deliver great tone and sustain. Tons of variety and everything you could want from a Gibson of the era. I got it from Greg at BCR Music in PA. He raved about the tone and feel if you need a further endorsement or second opinion. Condition wise, this guitar has a great vibe and would be cool for a player. The heel area has been repaired. We considered cosmetically touching up the repair for aesthetics but decided to leave that up to the new owner. the repair is solid and has presented zero tuning or stability issues. Frankly, the neck joint is probably stronger than when it left the factory as this is a common ailment on SGs of the era. Otherwise, this SG shows off some great vintage vibe. Average scratches, finish checking, dents, dings and wear that you would expect from a guitar of this age. A killer look. Comes in original hardshell case with one broken latch and some wear.
This is a great opportunity to get into a real SG/Les Paul at a great price. At the height of the market a few years ago, these were pushing $30K. Now after some sanity they seem to have settled down around $14-16K from most of the big dealers. Here's one for a lot less. Trades are welcome as well. BUY IT NOW and own a great SG!
