1961 Gibson Les Paul standard, original Cherry finish, dark Brazilian rosewood fingerboard. Original Lifton case included. PAF pickups and early 61 dated pots with unbroken solder. With the exception of one screw in the casing of the vibrato unit, this guitar is all original with no breaks or repairs.(the screw on the trem arm side of the vibrato unit has a flat head, unlike the two with domed heads on the other side which I believe to be original)

There are pictures of George Harrison with this model guitar taken during the Paperback Writer/Rain sessions. This guitar is in fantastic condition, showing light finish checking and a small area of buckle rash on the body with a few small patched of wear around the edges and a little on the back of the neck. The frets are in good shape having been dressed by my technician. There are no cracks or heel repairs.

This guitar has been fully set up and checked over by my technician Chris Ward. Serial: 11784. Weight: 6.7 lbs. Width at nut: 1 & 11/16" . At the 12th: 2 & 1/32" . Depth at nut 13/16". At the 12th: 7/8".
