Vintage 1961 Gibson Les Paul Standard SG Cherry Red Electric Guitar w/ OHSC
Heyyy now! You’re looking at one of the most iconic guitars ever made.
This is a vintage 1961 Gibson Les Paul Standard SG electric guitar, in Cherry Red.
It weighs 7 lbs 1 oz, 24.75″ scale, 1.67″ nut
.78″ – .86″ 1st – 12th fret neck depth
A very well kept, much loved example – original case, and PAFs.
This is the legendary guitar that so many guitar hero’s have rocked the world with.
The lightweight mahogany body / mahogany neck gives us incredible natural resonance, amazing tone transfer, and incredible mid-range crunch.
Grabbing up all this wonderful tone are a pair of original PAF humbuckers, and WOW do they scream. Every vintage tone is right at your fingertips.
It’s in great vintage condition, especially considering it’s age.
The neck is straight, and the frets are clean. There is some finish checking, marks, dents, finish chips, dings, scratches – everything you’d expect from a well loved, well played, well kept guitar.
You’ll also notice a separation in the binding on the neck, and a very small bb-sized “chunk” chipped from the rosewood on the 5th fret.
Please carefully look through all of my detailed photos for a better visual description.
The only thing not original are a few of the saddles, while the bridge is original.
Inside you’ll find a letter from Gibson Historian Walter Carter, confirming that the serial number 6560, was first shipped on March 21st, 1961. It was logged in Gibson’s book as “LP New”, that meant the SG style. It was the 84th entered in their log book in 1961. How Awesome!!

Don’t miss out on a true piece of Gibson history with this ’61 Les Paul Standard / SG
Thank you for looking!
