Ah! Thank you for responding.

I had no quarrel with the SG date.

Also, didn't Gibson discontinue the Les Paul in 1960?

"In 1961 the Les Paul Custom was made in both body styles."

Oops.

too late to do much now... editing is finished.

Anyway, I think 1961 was when HB's became the standard

"In early-1957, Gibson changed from P-90 single coil pickups to their new humbucking pickups, making the Les Paul Standard what it is today (one of the most popular electric guitars of all time). The humbucker goldtop is an amazing model and one I would love to find (please email me if you have one for sale!) The new humbucking pickups were not met enthusiastically by players at first. Most Les Paul players still wanted and used the P-90 goldtop models. But this idea eventually changed, making the humbucking pickup Les Paul models very desirable. "

TonsilRevenge you are one boring nerd. "...one of the most popular electric guitars of all time". Anyone would think you're a Gibson salesman or something. Anyway, Goldtops look gay.
