Gibson SG Standard '61, Vintage Cherry
Gibson SG Standard '61, Vintage Cherry Overview.
A hugely successful 2019 NAMM show has cemented the fact that Gibson are back in a very big way and here to stay! Taking feedback from players, consumers and retailers they have gone back to their roots and redesigned the range from the ground up to offer you the very best of Gibson. The brand new Gibson Original Collection is exactly that, no nonsense, no frills, just pure Gibson tone and playability with fantastic build quality.
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 slim taper 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 61R and 61T humbuckers for a classic voice with added power and top end. Controls feature audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors.

Wow......My new favourite.
Really good product - As described. additionally - Nice extras, case, strap, multi-tool.
Beautiful guitar. This is the 2nd one I’ve owned... sold the first 15 years ago and regretted it ever since. Feel, comfort, sound, look... best £1400 you could spend.
Excellent guitar, great variety of tones. Does what it says on the tin, its an SG.
