1961 GibsonSG Special – TV Yellow

When the Les Paul model changed to an SG shape, it was a radical departure for Gibson. Here we have a 1961 Gibson SG Special in its factory TV Yellow finish. This guitar also sports a short Maestro vibrola. All aspects of this guitar function as intended. It is all original including the finish, the two P-90 pickups, the “fastest neck in the world” slim neck, and the original frets with plenty of life left in them. The TV finish has that great patina and there are no breaks or cracks.
