The Gibson 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 a 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 gold 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.

You guys, this guitar rips! Seriously though. I have always loved SGs and how light they are and just the whole vibe. I ordered this one from zZounds and used their payment plan and had this bad boy on my front porch in 2 days! Mine is 6.4 lbs and the gold hardware looks awesome as well. These 61r and T pups have a nice little bite to them. And the nut was cut very well! No string binding issues on the G and D. I gigged it 2 times now. I can literally do 1 and a half step bends on the G and still play an open chord and it's money. Nothing worse than tryna rip a solo, going back to playing rhythm and......Uh Oh! All of a sudden your singer is looking at you like he wants to slap the fire outta ya! Then the drummer will be like, "who brought the out of tune guy"? Tbh, it's all bad. So yeah, great guitar, and now you can rock one that isn't The normal cherry color. Oh and lastly, this finish almost looks like Ebony, but when the light hits it, it's a very nice dark Cherry. Anyway, yeah this is a keeper.
