1964 SG Junior

A 1964 SG Junior

This classic, sharp horned and sculptured body style took over the "Les Paul" name in 1961 from the slab double cutaway version. It has double pointed cutaways, scaloped mahogany body, a single P-90 "dog ear" pickup, 3 layer black beveled pickguard, gold "Gibson" peghead logo, "Les Paul" silkscreened on peghead, nickel parts and a cherry red finish. There was also an SG TV model with the same specs but with a limed yellow or white finish that was supposed to show up well on black & white TV. In l
ate 1963 "Les Paul" was removed from the peghead and model officially known as the "SG Junior". Apparently Gibson had never obtained Les Pauls approval for this model!
