As one of the pioneering electric guitars in rock music the SG has killer sustain and blazing rock sound. This throwback model features vintage '61 Gibson SG build, quality design specs, and Burstbucker 61 pickups. This guitar is for the player who loves classic rock sound and awesome rock looks.

Vintage '61 Gibson SG Build
With its immediately recognizable dual "horns", the body of the SG Standard is built from mahogany, shaped into double cutaway design. It's got a deep sculpted scarfing and 5-ply teardrop pickguard. The mahogany neck features a 22nd fret neck joint and is set right into the body for great sustain with every note. The neck also has a 24.75" scale length and slim taper profile, affording it a great feel.

Quality Design Specs
The fretboard on the SG Standard '61 is bound rosewood, lined with acrylic trapezoid inlays. A Graph Tech nut allows the strings to move smoothly when bending. The headstock bears the Gibson name and is adorned with vintage deluxe tuners with keystone buttons. On the body, an ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge and aluminum stop bar tailpiece keeps the strings secure.  

Burstbucker 61 Pickups
For killer vintage tone, Gibson outfitted this awesome SG with dual Burstbucker 61 pickups. These humbuckers give classic, clear sound, and extra trebly output, which articulately handle gain and effects. With 2 volume and 2 tone controls, as well as a three-way toggle switch, there's little the SG Standard '61 can't handle.

Original Collection SG stop tail


Great guitar - not had chance to play too many vintage SG's, mostly juniors, but the original collection definitely has the vibe. VERY resonant guitar - play a G chord and the whole thing vibrates like its alive. Staff at my local Charlotte, NC shop couldn't have been more helpful.





It's the bomb!



I do like this SG


Thos SG has became my number 1. Up until now i have had Epiphones, not horrible in thd least bit.



I would but this again


I love it! I can't believe after 36 years of playing I have never an SG. It is like butter in my fingers.



Great Guitar!


I love everything about this guitar. Gibson necks feel like they work with you instead of against you, and the humbucker sound is always fantastic.

If You Want and SG, try this one


Had my eyes on an SG for a few years. I played quite a few different models before I stumbled upon a 61 reissue. Man, this thing sounds so good. It's got a real good setup straight from the factory which I truly appreciate. Lower then I have any other of my guitars but so playable. I understand the hype on the Orange drip tone pots too. Lots a different voices can be found on the one I got. I'm in love.



Most fun I've had from a Gibson!


Mainly a blues and classic rock player here....I didn't think an SG would fit but it was a real surprise. Light weight, versatile sounds and it's just fun to play--much more than the Les Paul I had. Nitro finish is very thin so be ready to scratch it--it's not going to stay new looking like a poly finish. --get one , they are great!



Looking forward to buying more from you guys


Love the product, very happy.





Great Guitar sounds great



Great SG for the money.


Very nice humbucker alternative to my R9. Suprised at how good the tone is with the stock pickups. Fretwire does not seem quite as big as my other guitars but it doesn't seem to affect playability.
