Back in 1961, these Gibsons were still sold as Les Pauls and wouldn't be called SGs until two years later. That's why the nameplate on this 1961 Gibson Les Paul Custom bares his name rather than 'SG'. With three humbucker pickups, I bet this guitar is a bit of a beast, but that just makes me want to try it more! Being auctioned by Gardiner Houlgate, this 'SG' has an estimate of $3,500-$5,000, which guitar condition aside really isn't a bad price for a genuine 60s Gibson.
