As the name implies, the Gibson SG Standard '61 Sideways Vibrola is equipped with the unique Sideways side-pull action vibrato similar to those found on the early 60's models. The SG Standard '61 features include a slim taper 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 a classic-style Tune-O-Matic bridge and keystone tuners in addition to the Sideways Vibrola Tailpiece. The pickups are 60s Burstbucker humbuckers for a classic voice with added power and top end. Controls feature audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors.
The SG Standard ‘61 Sideways Vibrola returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played and loved -- shaping sound across generations and genres of music.
