    NVGD. 1962 Les Paul SG standard

    Just picked up this beautiful all original including the frets 1962 Les Paul a few days ago. It’s is such good condition that I almost feel bad playing it. Oddly enough, I don’t think I ever owned an SG

    I initially was looking for a 52 or 53 Goldtop. Glad I broadened my search a bit. Beautiful clean tones from this SG especially in the neck position. The tone actually feels somewhere between a P90 equipped Les Paul and a PAF equipped Les Paul. I actually like the sideways vibrola and think it makes the guitar look much more aesthetically pleasing. While the SG will never be as heralded as its earlier Les Paul brethren, it’s a guitar that definitely has its own charms.

    lovely colour, PAFS and sideways vibrato. Whats not to like on this beauty? Well done on a fine example of a 1962 sculptured Les Paul Standard.

    Awesome choice! Although Les Pauls are my main axes and I love goldtops, there are better made ready-to-go guitars than trapeze LPs, they were still learning some stuff.

    I bet she plays nice, but she sure do the "looking good" thing very fine

    Beautiful guitar. Change the sideways mechanism for a Mojoaxe Vibrostop and it will stay in tune as well!

    Super nice guitar. One of my favorite model SG's. Don't change a thing on that baby.
