Gibson / Les Paul / SG Custom / 1961 / White / Guitar

1961 Gibson Les Paul SG Custom - ex Carlos Santana  !!!

1961 Gibson Les Paul/SG owned, played and signed by Carlos Santana. The Instrument comes in a original "Gibson Artist Paisley" case, which were introduced in about 1973. They were very expensive, so there a not many of these cases around. The guitar is in remarkable fine condition for its 52 (!) years of age, with no cracks or repairs or refinishing to any part of the body. Everything is stock original, except the sideways Vibrola has been replaced with a regular stop/tailpiece, the frets have been refretted and the pots have been changed in 1975 (CTS 137 75 22).  There comes a picture of Carlos Santana holding the guitar and a Letter of Authenticity from Santanas personal Assistant, assuring, that this guitar has been owned, played and signed by Carlos Santana.
