1964 was a stand-out year for the SG. The neck profile had increased, making it similar to the 1959 Les Paul, and the previous vibrato had been replaced with the superior maestro vibrola. Perhaps that's why both Eric Clapton and George Harrison could be found with the '64 SG in hand. So it's no wonder the Gibson Custom Shop has chosen his model for a reissue. Featuring an authentic '64 build, quality vintage specs with maestro vibrola, and unpotted Custombucker pickups, this guitar is perfect for the classic-rocker that wants to hold the spirit of that era in their hands.

Authentic '64 Build
The Gibson Custom Shop has grown very proficient at recreating legendary guitar models from yesteryear. They study every aspect of those guitars to understand the construction, materials, and design from top to bottom, enabling them to perfectly recreate each instrument. This SG reissue is built from 1-piece, solid, lightweight mahogany, using original construction methods. It's even colored with real red aniline dye finish. The neck is cut from solid mahogany and has an authentic '64 medium "C" profile for maximum resonance.  

Quality Vintage Specs with Maestro Vibrola
The Gibson Custom Shop is hyper-accurate in recreating all the specs of the original 1964 SG Standard masterpiece. This reissue features an Indian rosewood fretboard with hide glue fit. It has 22 frets, a nylon nut, and beautifully-styled cellulose nitrate trapezoid inlays. The headstock bears Kluson single line, double ring tuners for some extra vintage flare. The bridge is an ABR-1, complimented with the awesome maestro vibrola which adds vintage-cool looks and a nice touch to your playing dynamics.

Unpotted Custombucker Pickups
These electronics are exact replicas of the original '64 SG Standard. Left unpotted for a true vintage vibe, this SG is stocked with Custombucker Alnico III pickups at the neck and bridge. These bad boys hum with awesome rock sound. They're shaped by individual volume and tone controls and wired with CTS 500K audio taper potentiometers and black beauty capacitors.

Features:

  • 1-Piece Solid Lightweight Mahogany Body
  • Solid Mahogany Neck in Authentic '64 Medium "C" Shape
  • Indian Rosewood Fingerboard with Cellulose Nitrate Trapezoid Inlays
  • Dual Custombucker Alnico III Unpotted Pickups
