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”. While Les, himself, hated the new double-cutaway style (he made Gibson take his name off the guitar), it became a hit. The SG Standard ‘61 brings back the classic design that made it one of Gibson's most popular and enduring guitars.

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 deluxe tuners with keystone buttons. The pickups are 61R and 61T humbuckers for a vintage voice with added power and top end. A Hardshell case is included.
