Gibson Custom 1961 Les Paul SG Standard Reissue VOS, Cherry Red

Immortalised, invoked, conjured, sacrificed, revolved, passed through the doors of perception, renamed, and even smashed to pieces, the Gibson SG is a rock icon that has truly "been there and done that".

With its legendary sound and shape, the Gibson SG is no stranger to any guitar player, or music aficionado, and this CustomBucker equipped model replicates the specification, and original Les Paul name of the original 1961 model. The fast, comfortable SlimTaper neck with its perfectly Plek'd rosewood fingerboard feels instantly comfortable whilst also enticing you to play on, and that seductive but everso slightly devilish Mahogany body delivers the sustain that's become an SG trademark.
But it's not just the cosmetics and construction that are true to the original - Gibson have gone the extra mile to provide classic 1961 SG tone: CustomBucker Alnico III unpotted humbuckers, the most historically accurate PAF copy produced, provide that classic SG tone - which is further enhanced by the choice of CTS potentiometers, Black Beauty capacitors, and an ultra reliable 3-Way Switchcraft toggle switch.

With a specification that replicates everything from finish to tone, this highly crafted reissue of the first "Les Paul" SG takes you to the start of the incandescent decade it helped create a soundtrack to, and on to all it's iconic moments thereafter!


What Gibson say:

Gibson Custom Shop is the pinnacle of craftsmanship, quality, and sound excellence. Each instrument celebrates Gibson's legacy through accuracy, authenticity and attention to detail.

A 1960s SG has been the favorite of some of the most iconic guitarists ever... Angus Young, Tony Iommi, Robby Krieger, George Harrison, Dickey Betts, Gary Rossington, and Eric Clapton, to name a few. The SG's devilish points and curves, blistering humbucker tone and fast-playing neck help to make it one of the most coveted and revered 1960s Gibson models. This Custom Shop Historic Reissue SG continues the legendary magic of the originals with all solid woods, historic hide-glue construction methods, the finest vintage replica parts and materials available and the instantly-recognisable, powerful tone of pure rock 'n roll.
