The new solidbody guitar of the ’60s, the Gibson SG guitar, broke through traditional concepts of solid body electric guitars and became an instant classic. This body style has remained in production and has been screaming since its first appearance in 1961. These musical instruments have represented the combination of looks, functionality and value that is the hallmark of the SG series. 1961 was the year that Gibson changed the Les Paul Custom body style into a sharply pointed double-cutaway. This radical new design featured a thinner, bolder shape and was given the name SG for solid guitar.
