Built from solid mahogany, the body of the SG Standard '61 sports the unmistakable SG shape, with a body featuring intricate scarfing, a 5-ply teardrop pickguard, and a 22nd fret neck joint – all subtle nods to the guitar's rich heritage. The addition of a stop bar and the vivid Cardinal Red Burst finish are cherries on top and attention-grabbing details.
The aesthetic detail of this SG lies in the single-ply cream fretboard binding that frames the Indian Rosewood fingerboard adorned with acrylic trapezoid inlays. These visual elements, although subtle, contribute to the appeal of the SG Standard '61, while a SlimTaper mahogany neck provides the comfort and speed that SG players have loved for decades. Paired with a bound Indian Rosewood fingerboard and 22 medium-jumbo frets, it's a canvas for creative playing. The 43.05mm Graph Tech nut ensures stability, allowing players to dive into every note with confidence.
The "oomph" of the SG Standard '61 lies in its '60s Burstbucker pickups, delivering a classic tonal palette with a modern twist. These humbuckers capture the spirit of an era in music while offering enhanced power and top-end shine. Whether cranking up the gain or navigating a clean passage, the Burstbuckers are versatile enough to meet the needs of players.
A departure from the conventional, the Cardinal Red Burst finish accentuates the guitar's contours. This vibrant hue, coupled with the timeless SG design, complete with a hardshell case, sets the SG Standard '61 apart.
