When the SG debuted back in '61 it was considered pretty radical for the time, with its thin body and no nonsense styling, it clearly focussed on raw power and playability. Quickly becoming a fan favourite with players like Pete Townshend, the SG found itself a permanent member of the Gibson roster.
This handpicked Gibson Custom '61 SG Standard is just about as good as it gets!
With the classic Mahogany body, finished in Antique Pelham Blue, this SG is the same mega tone machine we all know and love. There is some incredible lacquer checking and tarnishing of the hardware on show here, it looks really authentic and the attention to detail is unreal.
The Mahogany neck is topped with a lush Bolivian Rosewood fingerboard, this is a true vintage inspired masterpiece. Unlike normal Mahogany guitars, the SG is nice and light thanks to its thinline profile and simplistic design. With a 24.75" scale length, it's comfortable and super familiar.
With a duo of Gibson Custom Buckers it offers bite and a super responsive, well-rounded tone. Perfect for players looking for the authentic Gibson PAF tone, these pickups offer clarity, definition and punch. Everything you would want from an SG.
Complete with hardcase and COA, this guitar is one for collectors and players alike!
