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, maestro vibrola tailpiece on top of great specs, and Burstbucker '61 pickups. This guitar is for the player who loves classic rock sound and awesome rock looks, with the added bonus of a unique tailpiece.

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 has deep sculpted scarfing and a 5-ply teardrop pickguard. The mahogany neck features a 22nd fret neck joint, and runs right into the body for great sustain with every note. It also has a 24.75" scale length and slim taper profile, affording it a great feel.

Maestro Vibrola Tailpiece on Top of Great Specs
The centerpiece of this beautiful vintage axe is the maestro vibrola tailpiece. It allows for smooth action and vibrato effects, and sports an awesome Lyre engraving on the cover. In conjunction with an ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge, you get fluid vibrato sound while keeping the strings secure. The fretboard on this SG Standard '61 is bound rosewood, lined with acrylic trapezoid inlays. A Graph Tech nut allows the strings to move smoothly when using the vibrato. The headstock bears the Gibson name and is adorned with vintage deluxe tuners with keystone buttons.

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 handles 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.

This is without a doubt the best guitar I ever played. I have other Gibson guitars, but none are like this one. The tone is incredible, and the slim taper neck made a huge difference in playability for me. Absolutely worth it.



wish list


great guitar



Finally got my dream guitar!


Have wanted one off these since I was a kid. Saw Duane, Dickey and Zappa with red SGs in the early 70s playing these. Unable to mow enough yards and scoop enough snow to buy one. Had to retire to buy one! Well worth the wait. What a great guitar! Playability is wonderful. Sounds fanastic. The '61 humbuckers sound perfect. Very traditional sounding. Absolutely love it! Fit and finish are flawless. The included hard case is wonderful, fits like a glove. No regrets with this purchase. Vito G. Was great to deal with! He made the transaction very pleasant. A+++



I would definitely recommend this to my friends!


Love this guitar! Looks and sounds great!



A little disappointed, but happy in the end.


I really can't give this a fair review as I only played it one time after receiving. There were a few blemishes, and the guitar had such a bad buzz on the low E string that I was instantly turned off. I ended up returning it and purchasing the new Gibson Flying V in Antique Natural finish. I am so glad I decided to go in a different direction, as the V is a beauty, and plays and sounds like a dream. And Daivid at Sam Ash was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. Top notch! Thanks again David!



simply awesome


all I can say is the guitar rocks. Great quality for the price.
