Gibson SG Standard '61 with Stop Bar Electric Guitar - Vintage Cherry

Sale price$499.99


Our Take:

A nostalgic return to the original design that started it all, the Gibson SG Standard '61 is as much a time machine as it is a marvel of modern guitar design. Originally an evolution of the Les Paul, the Gibson SG was a trailblazer in its time, and the SG Standard '61 is a return to those roots, with a slim taper mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard, Tune-O-Matic bridge, and a pair of 61R/61T humbuckers that deliver a classic SG voice with some welcome extra power and top end. Everything about this SG Standard '61 screams classic Gibson, and with the attention to detail and build quality that Gibson is known for, you'll be shocked that this isn't a vintage SG.

Gibson's Take:

The SG Standard ‘61 returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played and loved -- shaping sound across generations and genres of music. In 1961, the Les Paul model was put on hiatus and an all new design evolved into what is today known as the SG or “solid guitar”. 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 keystone tuners. The pickups are 61R and 61T humbuckers for a classic voice with added power and top end. Controls feature audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors.
