The iconic Gibson SG, one of the all-time great guitars, is back for 2019 and the new Standard 61 Sideways Vibrola is better than ever.
Originally launched in 1961 as a temporary replacement for the single cutaway Les Paul, the SG gained favour with rock and blues players who were impressed by its innovative design. Now, the Gibson SG Standard 61 2019 represents a great mix of early '60s vision with contemporary versatility and feel.
A classic all Mahogany body finished in a gorgeous Vintage Cherry gives this guitar that beautiful vintage Gibson look while a Mahogany neck and Rosewood fingerboard, with its fast and comfortable slim taper neck profile, enhance the rich tone.
Classic Gibson tones come courtesy of a pair of Burstbucker humbuckers. With a really unique sonic character it is versatile, dynamic and offers crystal clear note definition. Equipped with a Sideways Vibrola, you get smooth vibrato and a classic Gibson aesthetic.
It's a great example of timeless design.
The SG Standard 61 2019 is delivered in a hard shell case for great protection at home or on the road.
