50 years ago, Gibson introduced the SG as a new design to supplant the original Les Paul. While that plan turned out to be temporary, the SG went on to become one of the most recognizable, iconic guitars in popular music history, and appeared on numerous history altering recordings.
The Gibson SG '61 returns to the original specs that turned to music world on its ear 50 years ago. The unmistakably classic double-cutaway body is carved from mahogany and retains its lightweight, thin, beveled edge design. A satin nitro-cellulose finish gives this ’61 SG a vintage worn-in feel. A set-in mahogany neck features a ’60s Slim-Taper neck profile that will provide incomparable player comfort. A baked maple fingerboard is topped off with 22 frets and classic Gibson trapezoid-shaped inlays. The SG ’61 is available in Ebony, Worn Brown, or the classic Worn Cherry finish.
The electronics schematic remains true to the classic SG/Les Paul formula, with a pair Gibson USA '57 Classic Humbucker pickups, along with a 3-way switch. Each pickup has its own volume and tone controls. The Tune-O-Matic Bridge/stopbar tailpiece combo provides maximum tuning stability. Finally, a protective, Gibson hardshell case is included.
