This is a real Gibson Les Paul SG Custom and was made in the USA in circa 1962. The pots actually date to 1960 but the serial number is from 1962. The pickups in this guitar are unfortunately not the original PAF pickups. They gold pickups covers matches the original 1962 hardware nicely. Aside from the pickups all the other parts are original including gold patent pending Grover tuners, No Wire ABR-1 gold bridge, gold side-pull vibrato tailpiece.The wiring harness is all original and the pots date to the 45th week of 1960. The guitar has the original white finish and has yellowed nicely and looks really vibey. There is a long finish crack running down the back of the neck. I have had numerous techs look at this and the crack only goes as deep as the finish.
The crack does not extend into the wood and the neck has not been broken or repaired. Because the crack is only in the finish there is really ins't anything to repair and it would require the original finish removed and the guitar to be oversprayed to be worked on. I have elected to leave it alone because it doesn't affect the playability and I didn't want the neck to look oversprayed. The guitar has been professionally set up and plays great.
The frets are the original fretless wonder frets and feel great. The guitar shows typical nicks, dings and scratches.There is typical finish checking along the sides of the fretboard and there is one ding on the side that a previous owner did some touch up on with, see pics.
