The SG Standard ‘61 returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played, and loved -- shaping sound across generations and genres of music. 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.” The Gibson SG Standard '61 retains the styling of the original featuring a SlimTaper™ 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 Keystone tuners. The pickups are 60s Burstbucker™ humbuckers™ for a classic voice with added power and top end. Controls feature audio taper potentiometers and Orange Drop® capacitors.
