This Gibson SG Standard '61 showcases a beautiful Pelham Blue Burst finish, adding a fresh twist to its iconic design. It pays homage to a significant year in guitar history, commemorating the temporary hiatus of the iconic Les Paul and the emergence of the SG's sleek silhouette. This instrument captures the essence of the original SG design while incorporating contemporary elements.
Crafted from solid mahogany, the SG Standard '61 features the distinctive SG shape, detailed scarfing on the body, a 5-ply teardrop pickguard, and a 22nd fret neck joint, all reminiscent of the guitar's rich heritage. The addition of a stop bar and the vibrant Pelham Blue Burst finish adds eye-catching details to this exceptional instrument.
The aesthetic charm of this SG is highlighted by the single-ply cream fretboard binding framing the Indian Rosewood fingerboard, adorned with acrylic trapezoid inlays. These subtle visual elements contribute to the overall appeal of the SG Standard '61. The SlimTaper mahogany neck ensures comfort and speed, characteristics beloved by SG players for decades. Paired with a bound Indian Rosewood fingerboard and 22 medium-jumbo frets, it provides a versatile canvas for creative playing. The 43.05mm Graph Tech nut ensures stability, allowing players to dive into every note with confidence.
The SG Standard '61's sonic character is defined by its '60s Burstbucker pickups, offering a classic tonal palette with a modern twist. These humbuckers capture the essence of a bygone musical era while delivering enhanced power and top-end shine. Whether pushing the gain or navigating a clean passage, the Burstbuckers cater to the diverse needs of players.
Diverging from the norm, the Pelham Blue Burst finish accentuates the guitar's contours, providing a refreshing visual appeal. This vibrant color, combined with the timeless SG design and complemented by a hardshell case, sets the SG Standard '61 apart from the rest.
