The 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 an all new 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.

Specs: Mahogany body; mahogany rounded neck; 24.75" scale length; rosewood fingerboard; 12" fingerboard radius; 22 medium jumbo frets; 1.69" nut width; ABR1 Tune-O-Matic bridge with aluminum stop bar tailpiece; vintage deluxe w/ keystone button tuners. Gloss nitrocellulose lacquer Heritage Cherry finish. Gibson hard shell case.

Electronics: 61R (neck) + 61T (bridge) humbucking pickups. Individual volume and tone controls; 3-way toggle switch.
