I was contacted back in June by a Gibson Custom Shop employee who saw a post that I made on this forum several years ago featuring my '61 LP/SG Standard. He created an account just to contact me and let me know that he used to own that guitar from around 2000-2010 and was interested in getting it back. It wasn't for sale, but I let him know that I was somewhat open to the idea. After several months, we ended up coming to a trade+cash deal, which included a couple of Historic Reissue Les Pauls. Some of you may have seen the R8 in the classifieds last week and the R9 will be featured in a NGD thread in the Historic section coming soon. :)

Part of me making peace with selling a guitar that I really loved was that I was really interested in getting either a Polaris White LP/SG Custom or a Polaris White SG Special. I ended up finding a really great example at Nationwide Guitars and it arrived yesterday.

As you saw from the thread title, it's a 1963 model and is all original, although I'm on the hunt for a proper Archcraft plush case if anyone has any leads. It came set up perfectly and plays and sounds great, both clean and dirty.

Here are some pics that I took early this morning. Enjoy!

Congrats!
That's a beauty. I had a SG Special and wish I never let it go. The SG/P90 sound is one of my favorites.
