This 13" wide, January 1962 "Polaris White" Les Paul SG Custom weighs just 7.60 lbs. and has a nice, fat nut width of 1 11/16 inches and a standard Gibson scale length of 24 3/4 inches. Solid Honduras mahogany body, one-piece mahogany neck with a wonderful medium profile. Single-bound ebony fretboard with 22 original "Fretless Wonder" thin frets and inlaid pearl block position markers. Headstock with inlaid pearl "Gibson" logo and pearl five-piece split-diamond inlay. Five-digit serial number "42733" stamped on the back of the headstock. Two-layer black over white plastic bell-shaped truss-rod cover with two screws. Individual Grover Roto-Matic Tuners with half-moon metal buttons. Three-layer (white/black/white) plastic cover with two screws at end of neck engraved in black "Les Paul / Custom". Three original Gibson PAF humbucker pickups with balanced outputs of 8.09k, 7.72 and 7.77k. All three pickups with a black label ("Patent Applied For") on the underside. Three-layer plastic (white,black,white) pickguard with five screws. Four controls (two volume, two tone) plus three-way selector switch, all on lower treble bout. The potentiometers are all stamped "134 6120" (Centralab May1961). Black plastic bell-shaped knobs with metal tops.
ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic non-retainer bridge with metal saddles and Gibson sideways Vibrola tailpiece. All hardware gold plated. There is a small amount of very fine fine finish checking especially on the back of the neck. There is a small area of 'brownish' discoloration on the back of the neck just behind the 12th fret where the guitar has obviously stood on a guitar stand for a long period of time. There is a small oval indentation (3/8 x 1/2 inch) on the back just by the control panel cover. There are a few very small and insignificant surface marks on the sides and some loss of the gold-plating on the vibrato cover and pickup covers. The original 'Fretless Wonder' frets show very little sign of wear and the guitar plays and sounds like a dream. This is one of the cleanest examples of the 'earliest' version with the smooth neck heel joint that we have seen. We conservatively give this fine instrument a (9.00) exceptionally fine rating. Housed in the original Gibson five-latch shaped black hardshell case with orange plush lining (9.00).
