Original 1961 Les Paul SG Standard
Hand-Painted 'The Fool' by Rick Daskam

1961. Gibson. Les Paul SG Standard 'The Fool'. Psychedelic (9.25).

Double cutaway solid body with pointed horns. This 'unique' guitar is a near exact replica of Eric Clapton's famous psychedelic 1963 SG Standard. It is an original mid-1961 Gibson SG Standard that has been specially hand-painted by Rick Daskam. Thirteen inch wide, 1 3/8 inch thick, solid Honduras mahogany body with beveled edges weighing just 7.50 lbs. One-piece mahogany neck with a nice, fat nut width of just over 1 11/16 inches, a standard Gibson scale length of 24 3/4 inches and a very fast thin-to-medium profile. Back and front of headstock hand-painted. On the back of the headstock is a small rectangular window displaying the original serial number. Two-layer black over white plastic truss-rod cover with "Les Paul" engraved in white, secured by two screws. Mid-sixties, individual Grover Roto-Matic tuners with half-moon metal buttons. Single-bound Brazilian rosewood fretboard with 22 jumbo frets (re-fretted) and inlaid pearl trapezoid position markers. Original five-layer, black over white plastic pickguard with five screws (now painted "The Fool"). Two ca. 1963 early "patent number" pickups (covers removed) with outputs of 7.88k and 7.18k. The original black plastic pickup "rings" are stamped on the underside "MR 491" and "M-69 7" (neck pickup), and "MR 490" and "M-69 8" (bridge pickup). Inside the neck pickup cavity is a small white label with "M.J.K / 2003" written in ink. The inside the bridge pickup cavity is signed in ink "R. Daskam / #6". The potentiometers are all stamped "134 61 03" (Centralab, January 1961). Four controls (two volume, two tone) plus three-way selector switch on lower treble bout. Original black plastic bell-shaped knobs with metal tops. A wonderful example of Rick Daskam's artistic genius on an original 1961 Gibson Les Paul SG Standard. Housed in the original Gibson five-latch, shaped black hardshell case with orange plush lining (9.00)
