This Gibson SG Standard '61 showcases a Silver Mist finish, infusing a distinct vibrancy into its appearance. It pays tribute to a pivotal year in guitar history, marking the temporary hiatus of the iconic Les Paul and the emergence of the SG's recognizable shape. This instrument encapsulates the spirit of the original SG design while incorporating modern elements.
Constructed from solid mahogany, the SG Standard '61 boasts the unmistakable SG shape, detailed scarfing on the body, a 5-ply teardrop pickguard, and a 22nd fret neck joint, all reminiscent of the guitar's storied heritage. The inclusion of a stop bar and the striking Silver Mist finish adds captivating details to this exceptional instrument.
The visual allure of this SG is accentuated by the single-ply cream fretboard binding that frames 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 cherished by SG players for decades. Paired with a bound Indian Rosewood fingerboard and 22 medium-jumbo frets, it provides a versatile canvas for expressive playing. The 43.05mm Graph Tech nut ensures stability, empowering players to dive into every note with assurance.
The sonic identity of the SG Standard '61 is shaped by its '60s Burstbucker pickups, delivering a classic tonal palette with a contemporary twist. These humbuckers capture the essence of a bygone musical era while providing enhanced power and top-end brilliance. Whether pushing the gain or navigating a clean passage, the Burstbuckers cater to the diverse needs of players.
Deviating from convention, the Silver Mist finish accentuates the guitar's contours, offering a fresh and visually captivating look. This unique color, combined with the timeless SG design and complemented by a hardshell case, distinguishes the SG Standard '61 as a standout instrument.
