As the name implies, the Gibson SG Standard '61 Maestro Vibrola Faded also adds vibrato capability. The Maestro Vibrola offers smooth vibrato effects and the classic styling of the Lyre engraving on the tailpiece cover. Standard features include a SlimTaper mahogany neck and a bound rosewood fingerboard. The mahogany body features a deeply sculpted body scarfing, a 5-ply teardrop pickguard, and a 22nd-fret neck joint. The nickel-plated hardware includes an ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge and Keystone tuners in addition to the Maestro Vibrola. The pickups are open-coil 60s Burstbucker for a classic voice with added power and top end. Controls feature audio taper potentiometers and Orange Drop Capacitors.
The SG Standard '61 Maestro Vibrola Faded returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played, and loved --shaping sound across generations and genres of music. It features a satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish that fives it the look and feel of a long-treasured musical companion.
