SG Standard ‘61  -  Vintage Cherry

True to the original ’61 SG model (the one that caused Les Paul to pull his name off the headstock!), this was the all new design that evolved into what became known as the SG or “solid guitar”. It might not have been a Les Paul, but it quickly gained its own identity and popularity with a new generation of Gibson  fans.

The Gibson SG Standard '61 retains the styling of the original, featuring a slim taper mahogany neck and a bound rosewood fingerboard. The mahogany body features deeply sculpted body scarfing, a 5-ply teardrop pickguard and a 22nd-fret neck joint. The nickel plated hardware includes a classic-style Tune-O-Matic bridge and deluxe tuners with keystone buttons. The pickups are 61R and 61T humbuckers for a vintage voice with added power and top end. A Hardshell case is included.
