In 1961, Gibson introduced an all-new instrument that was loved by players for its fast playing neck and lightweight, double-cutaway design. Gibson Custom proudly introduces an outstandingly accurate replica of this now-legendary guitar with the '61 SG Standard VOS. Made using the classic SG ingredients found on the original SG guitars, this faithful re-creation also comes with accurate, old-school-style electronics to deliver that coveted vintage sound. Topped off with all vintage replica plastics and hardware, this '61 SG Standard VOS truly gives vintage reissue a whole new meaning. Whether you're a vintage tone chaser or a vintage Gibson enthusiast, you can be sure that this SG will fit perfectly into your collection!

Classic SG Ingredients
This traditional recipe is one that you just don't want to mess with. Featuring that famed "double-horn" solid, lightweight mahogany body, an authentic hide glue construction, and a mahogany neck with a long tenon joint, this '61 SG Standard gives you all the warmth, balance, and sustain you've come to expect from an SG. A big part of what made the SG so successful was the ease of playability, so for this reissue, the neck is shaped into an authentic, ultra-fast '60s Slim profile, and features a solid rosewood fingerboard with historic frets. Topped off with a Faded Cherry VOS finish, this '61 SG Standard really gives off that classic SG vibe you've been searching for.

Accurate, Old-School-Style Electronics
Everything about this guitar remains true to the originals; so of course, the vintage-accurate electronics are a must on the '61 SG Standard VOS. To faithfully replicate the coveted juicy tones of those "Patent Applied For" pickups, this SG comes loaded up with dual Custombucker pickups and hand-wired electronics featuring a traditional 4-knob control layout and Switchcraft 3-way toggle.

Vintage Replica Plastics and Hardware
This latest offering from Gibson reimagines the 1961 SG Standard with the now-tried-and-true ABR-1/Stopbar tailpiece combination in place of the ornate, yet cumbersome push-pull sideways vibrato. The old-school push/style fold up trem was innovative, but it was as functional as an underground birdcage, or a sock that has the opening at the toes. Of course, this '61 SG Standard also comes complete with a set of vintage-style Double Band Kluson Deluxe tuning machines, a nylon nut, that distinctive SG pickguard, and the "Les Paul" truss rod cover. To top it all off, just like the finish, all of the nickel-plated hardware has undergone Gibson Custom's VOS process to give the hardware a classic, aged aesthetic.
