Beautiful, flawless finish with a super fast neck. Retaining the styling of the original, the SG Standard '61 features 61R and 61T humbuckers for a classic PAF voice with added power and top end. The SG Standard ‘61 shaped the 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. Controls feature audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors.
