Hi there!

It's the first time I post in the Vintage SG section!

So I went to a store in London to check out guitars and saw that wonderful '61 SG Junior with one single P90. Absolutely loved the sound and the feel, it's was literally perfect. First vintage SG I play but also first Junior I play ever!

The store is asking approximately £2500 for it (around 3200 USD).

I don't know anything about the value of theses guitars though, and I don't know which year is better and why etc.

Could someone help me a bit? I'm actually very interested in that guitar and would appreciate if I had more info about the era and the model!

Here's a picture of the beast, it is all original!

Not sure if it's the way the picture was taken or the lights; the color of the SG looks very "crayon". Originally (parts, color, frets, etc...) of the guitar will affect the price greatly.

I think it's just the way the picture was taken. In real life when I saw the guitar, the finish was a bit cracked and the guy said that the guitar was all original... But man, it looks absolutely stunning!

I like the fact that you have to re learn how to use your pickup because you only have one, you have to learn how to make different sounds with it instead of always putting volume and tone at 10! :applause:
