1962 Gibson “Les Paul” SG
After the original Les Paul model guitar was discontinued in 1959, Gibson decided to try again with a completely revamped design. Les Paul disliked the design so much that he asked the company to remove his name from the instrument and it was later dubbed the SG (for solid guitar). Despite the name change, a few models, such as this one, made it out of the factory with the Les Paul truss rod cover still in place.
