A 1960s SG has been the favorite of some of the most guitarists players ever...Angus Young, Tony Iommi, Robby Krieger, George Harrison, Dickey Betts, Gary Rossington, and Eric Clapton, to name a few. The SG's devilish points and curves, blistering humbucker tone and fast-playing neck help to make it one of the most coveted and revered 1960s Gibson models. This 2018 Gibson Custom Shop Historic '61 SG Standard model continues the legendary magic of the originals with all solid woods, historic hide-glue construction methods, the finest vintage replica parts and materials avaiable and the instantly-recognizable, powerful tone of pure rock 'n roll

The original SG wasn't named SG at all. It was in fact originally dubbed a "Les Paul" and was intended to revitalize the slumping demand for Gibson's more traditional solid body electrics as players' tastes turned to lighter weight guitars with slimmer necks. The short lived Les Paul endorsement ended when Les proclaimed the guitar as "evil looking" and not to his liking. 

Renamed "SG", short for "Solid Guitar", this next generation of design from Gibson has grown into an icon of its own, played and recorded in the hands of Carlos Santana, Tony Iommi, Angus Young and an impressive list of others who chose it for its unique voice and feel. The Standard Historic SG Standard captures the original's reputation for lightweight, clean aesthetic, fast playing feel and undeniably Gibson voice. The 2016 SG Standard is built to Standard Historic Specifications which include a long neck tenon, all hide glue neck construction, reissue aniline dye, hand-wired VOS harness with Bumble Bee capacitors and CTS pots; all just a few of the many details that make this reissue a dream to play.
