This Gibson SG Standard '61 showcases a simple and elegant Classic White finish, paying homage to a crucial year in guitar history when the legendary Les Paul took a temporary hiatus, paving the way for the SG's sleek profile. This guitar captures the essence of the original SG design with contemporary twists.
Crafted from solid mahogany, the SG Standard '61 features the unmistakable SG shape, topped with intricate scarfing, a 5-ply teardrop pickguard, and a 22nd fret neck joint—subtle nods to the guitar's rich heritage. The addition of a stop bar and the refined Classic White finish adds a touch of sophistication to this attention-grabbing instrument.
The visual appeal of this SG is enhanced by the single-ply cream fretboard binding that frames the Indian Rosewood fingerboard, adorned with acrylic trapezoid inlays. These design elements, while understated, contribute to the appeal of the SG Standard '61, while the SlimTaper mahogany neck ensures the comfort and speed that SG players have cherished for decades. Paired with a bound Indian Rosewood fingerboard and 22 medium-jumbo frets, it provides a canvas for creative playing. The 43.05mm Graph Tech nut ensures stability, allowing players to dive into every note with confidence.
The distinctive sound of the SG Standard '61 comes from its '60s Burstbucker pickups, offering a classic tonal palette with a modern twist. These humbuckers capture the essence of an era while delivering enhanced power and top-end shine. Whether pushing the gain or exploring a clean passage, the Burstbuckers are versatile enough to meet the demands of players.
Departing from tradition, the Classic White finish highlights the guitar's contours. This timeless color, coupled with the iconic SG design and a hardshell case, distinguishes the SG Standard '61 with style and substance.
