    Product Description

    The Epiphone 1961 Les Paul SG Standard forms part of the "Inspired by Gibson" range and was developed in partnership with the Gibson Custom Shop. It represents Epiphone's most immersive recreation to date and serves up a host of vintage-inspired features in one of the most recognisable designs of all time. The 1961 Les Paul SG Standard is a faithful recreation of the legendary original SG, and pays tribute to the now iconic solid body guitar. In 1961, sales of the original Les Paul had begun to wane, so it was replaced by an all-new design that is known today as the SG or “solid guitar.”

    Inspired by Gibson

    Loaded with a pair of Gibson BurstBucker 2 and 3 pickups, the 1961 Les Paul SG is a highly spec'd tonal powerhouse. Whether you're jamming out some crunchy rock riffs or some silky-smooth lead lines, the 1961 Les Paul SG has plenty of tones on tap to suit a variety of genres. Featuring a two-piece solid Mahogany, double-cutaway body with Custom Shop Historic bevels, the Les Paul SG lives up to its name as the ultimate solid guitar. A one-piece Mahogany, fast-playing SlimTaper™ C-shaped neck ensures a comfortable playability and pays homage to the legendary early Les Paul SG models.

    The 1961 Les Paul SG also boasts plenty of premium hardware including CTS potentiometers and Mallory capacitors, a Graph Tech nut, and Switchcraft output jack and toggle switch. If that wasn't enough, the Les Paul SG is presented in a classy, vintage-style hardshell case so it's ready to hit the road when you are! "For those about to rock..." well you get the idea!

    I had read/watched a lot of reviews before deciding to order this guitar instead of the SG Standard, but it has lived up to all my expectations so far. The Gibson pickups sound great and it’s very comfortable to play. The fitted case is a nice bonus too.
