This is a very clean 'under the bed' example of this 1st year sg. no dings, scratches, or finish checking. There is one slight finish crack @ neck heel (not wood) & that is it. Tried to show in pic & the shadow makes it looks more serious than it is. It is barely noticeable to the naked eye. it is the only finish crack on the whole guitar. If the whole thing was checked, as most are, you'd never notice it.
It is really amazing. the case interior looks brand new. To be honest, the guitar looks brand new.

Luckily for us, he was a hollow body guy & never really took to the SG. apparently, he'd bust it out on his birthday every year for a few days, but always ended up back in the case in favor of his hollow body.
Solder joints are untouched. original PAFs are sweet & strong. Frets are clean & full. nylon saddles (non retaining wire bridge) is all original. slide playing is a dream on this guitar. Red color is vibrant & strong. No fading to speak of. One of the cleanest '61 SGs out there. Great investment grade quality.
There were only 1449 SG/Les Pauls made in 1962. In '62 Gibson switched to the ebony block (& then the lyre trem by '63), so a '62 w. a sideways vibrola is quite r
