Vintage Gibson SG Les Paul


Jack Van Breen from Guitar Showcase shows us another great guitar, this time a 1960 Les Paul. What you say, it looks like and SG. Well it IS and SG body style. In 1960, the Les Paul Guitar we know wasn’t selling well due to competition from the Fender Stratocaster. So Gibson answered with a thinner, lighter double-horn body. Gibson still had a stock or Les Paul truss rod covers and used those until 1963. In 1960, Les Paul the inventor, left Gibson. The SG body style proved popular over the years and is still in production today.
