In 1961, the traditional Les Paul Standard received a makeover that included a thinner body with sharply pointed horns and eventually a new name – the gibson SG – solid guitar. Today’s reissue features the small pickguard and nickel-plated hardware of the original ’61 – with pure vintage vibe, red-hot tone.
The Gibson SG 61 Reissue Guitar is so light, comfortable and playable you won’t want to put it down. Features a slim-taper neck, sculpted double-cutaway mahogany body, exclusive ’57 classic humbucking pickups at the neck and bridge, and 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with trapezoid inlays. Relive some of the greatest moments of rock ‘n’ roll with a one-piece bound mahogany neck, tune-o-matic bridge, stopbar tailpiece, and nickel hardware. Includes hardshell case.
