Gibson Les Paul Standard (SG) in original Cherry finish made in Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1962. This iconic guitar features a one-piece Honduran Mahogany body, one-piece Honduran Mahogany neck and Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard. Equipped with two original Gibson PAF Humbucker pickups with original Nickel covers that sound absolutely incredible, complete with the original capacitors and pots that date to 1961. The 24.75” scale length neck has trapezoid inlays, a thin 60’s slim neck profile, and 22 frets that have been professionally replaced and feel fantastic. The original Kluson Deluxe single-line double-ring tuning machines and sideways deluxe vibrato hold tune great and function as they should. The original ABR-1 no-wire bridge with nylon saddles is in excellent shape and setup with perfect intonation and height for great playing action.

The original Cherry Lacquer finish is in great shape although has faded overtime and has checking, as well as various dings and dents but no breaks or cracks into the body or neck. The original 5-ply pick guard has shrunken slightly overtime which has resulted in a small crack around one of the screw holes. There was at one time a mini-switch installed in-between the volume and tone controls but has since been professionally removed. This original 1962 Gibson Les Paul with PAF’s sounds absolutely amazing, plays fantastic with the re-fret and has the perfect amount of honest play-wear without compromising any of the original parts, finish or major damages. Comes with the original Gibson hardshell case and original Gibson owners manual.
