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 Gibson Custom SG '61 is just about as good as it gets! With the classic lightweight Mahogany body, finished in a beautiful Faded Cherry VOS, this SG is the same mega tone machine we all know and love.
The neck is topped with a lush bound Rosewood fingerboard, complete with Block inlays 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 and 22 medium Jumbo frets, 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.
This guitar is used but in great condition, it was sold originally by us last year to one of our regular customers who has looked after this one especially well! There is some very minor buckle rash but nothing outside of the ordinary for a used guitar.
