Classic design and appointments plus powerful Burstbucker 61 humbuckers make the Gibson SG Standard '61 electric a barn-burning rock 'n' roll machine.

Gibson SG Standard '61 Electric Guitar
The Gibson SG Standard '61 returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played and loved -- shaping sound across generations and genres of music. In 1961, the Les Paul model was put on hiatus and a design evolved into what is today known as the SG or "solid guitar". The Gibson SG Standard '61 retains the styling of the original featuring a slim taper mahogany neck and a bound rosewood fingerboard. The mahogany body features deeply sculpted body scarfing, a 5-ply teardrop pickguard and a 22nd-fret neck joint. The nickel plated hardware includes a classic-style Tune-O-Matic bridge and keystone tuners. The pickups are 61R and 61T humbuckers for a classic voice with added power and top end. Controls feature audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors.
