Made in partnership with Gibson Custom Shop, this Inspired by Gibson™ model is Epiphone’s impressive recreation of one of the most important and popular guitar designs of all time. The Epiphone 1961 Les Paul™ SG™ Standard pays tribute to the legendary original – the very first SG.
In 1961, the original shape of the Les Paul went on hiatus, replaced by an all-new design that is known today as the SG or “solid guitar.” Featuring an all-mahogany, deeply beveled double-cutaway body, it also has the fast-playing Slim Taper™ C-shaped neck profile of those legendary early Les Paul SG models.
It also comes equipped with a pair of Gibson™ BurstBucker™ humbucking pickups wired to CTS® potentiometers and Mallory™ capacitors, a Graph Tech® nut and Switchcraft output jack and toggle switch.
Of course, all of the legendary SG styling and cosmetic touches are here too, and a vintage style hardshell case is also included.
