1987 Gibson SG Les Paul Custom


In stock

In lovely uniformly-faded Alpine White nitrocellulose lacquer, gold parts, Honduran mahogany neck and body with strongly-beveled early ’60s-style horns, bound ebony fingerboard with pearl blocks, bound headstock with split-diamond inlay, Grover Rotomatic tuners, 3 “patent stamp” humbuckers, small 3-ply white pickguard with separate piece between end of fingerboard and neck pickup, small Tune-o-matic bridge with stoptail. 7 pounds overall, plays very well, sounds fantastic with some unique tones not available on a standard SG, a few dings here and there and a missing disc on one of the knobs, but overall clean, all-original, and comes in its factory hard case. The SG Custom had been discontinued in 1980, but the company as part of their post-Norlin renaissance brought it back in 1986 as the “SG ’62 Custom” and renamed it the following year, before discontinuing it once again in 1991. Quite scarce, and cool as all get-out – just look at some of the iconic users of white SG Customs – Tony Iommi, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and of course Jimi Hendrix.
