GIBSON ELECTRIC: SG SERIES In 1961, the new SG (solid guitar) body shape with double pointed cutaway was originally intended to bring a new style to the Les Paul line. But without Les Paul´s approval, they were renamed the SG during 1963. The first two years of SG production (1961-end of 1963) in this series have Les Paul logos on their pegheads or the area below the fingerboard (see Les Paul section).
