1962 Gibson Les Paul/SG Standard in its original Cherry finish that we have just obtained from the sons of the original owner. It has a very nice straight neck with great frets. It's all original and 100% complete including its original hardshell case and all of its original HANG TAGS, paperwork, original Gibson issued screwdriver, and price tag for the case. This vintage Les Paul has a very unusual 6 digit serial number that would normally place it at 1965, but it has all 1962 features including PAF pickups, nickel hardware, ABR-1 no-wire bridge, sideways Vibrola, single-line Kluson Deluxe tuners, "Les Paul" truss rod cover, and '62 pots. The nut width is 1-11/16" and the weight is 7 lbs. 1.8 oz. It's in EXCELLENT condition with only minor nicks + dings, and other comsetic wear including an area on the lower half of the back of the body where the finish has several very tiny marks in the finish. The guitar itself remains structurally sound with no cracks, breaks, or repairs. Some of the solder has been redone as it appears the pickups had been removed at one time. There is no evidence that any other pickups were ever installed on this guitar. When the channel for the wiring leading from the control cavity to the pickups was drilled at the factory, the wood above the channel must have chipped out leaving an open channel for the pickup wires. A longer screw was used for that side of the control cavity cover, but the screw no longer grips the wood as it could use a longer screw.

Our guitars are usually packed the same business day that we receive payment. We take the utmost care when packing our guitars and basses to assure that they arrive safely. We detune all guitars so that there is no tension on the neck, then the guitar is packed inside the case so that it does not move during shipment. After the guitar is safely packaged inside the case we wrap the case with several layers of half-inch tall bubble wrap. After the guitar is wrapped it is placed into one of our custom-made double-walled cardboard boxes of the appropriate size. We then use packing peanuts or packing paper to fill any negative space in the box so that the guitar is secured with several inches of padding and does not move around. This way, even if the guitar is mishandled during shipment, it will arrive safe and sound. Our guitars are usually shipped the same business day that we receive payment. Most of our guitars are shipped UPS, and items are always fully insured. If you would like a guitar shipped with FedEx or USPS, please let us know and we can accommodate your needs. Because of insurance the price of shipping will vary, so please email us for an exact shipping quote. Shipping for most guitars will be around $50.
If you feel that we have misrepresented anything, please contact us within 48 hours, and ship the guitar back to us. After we receive the guitar and it is in the same condition as when it was sold, we will give you a full refund minus the shipping charges.
