The Gibson 2019 SG Standard 61 Electric Guitar in Vintage Cherry harks back to the model that started it all for Gibson’s Solid Guitar (SG). Staying faithful to appointments that made the original such a covetous model, the 2019 SG Standard '61 bears classic features that everyone from purists to newcomers will enjoy. Each model is supplied with a hardshell case as well as a Gibson accessory kit to keep your guitar in pristine condition.
The 2019 SG Standard '61 is shaped to the legendary double-cutaway "horns" body shape that we've all come to know and love. Built using mahogany with a super-thin depth and curves in all the right places, the SG is a joy to wield and doesn't hold back when it comes to generating tone with an impressive midrange bite. The mahogany has been treated to a coating of gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, which offers protection against unwanted blemishes to preserve the vintage cherry paintwork for as long as possibly, enabling it to age gracefully.
Lightning fast neck
Connected to the body is a robust mahogany neck, which is shaped to the elegant slim taper profile to give it a sleek feel in the hand. The neck extends along a generous 24.75-inch scale length to encourage a warm response from each and every note. Paired with the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 cryogenically-treated low frets with acrylic trapezoid inlays to aid in your navigation. The 12-inch fingerboard radius allows you to lay down your chops in comfort, accommodating seamless string bends and effortless slide.
Burstbucker 61R and 61T
Along with authentic feel and style, Gibson have recruited their Burstbucker 61R and 61T pickups to deliver authentic tone. Designed to articulate the dense tonal energy of the mahogany whilst ensuring a crunchy bite across the high end, these beauties are the stuff dreams are made of. Control over your tone comes in the form of independent volume and tone pots for each pickup, as well as a three-way pickup selector switch for rapid adjustment between the neck and bridge. Whatever style of music that you're performing, the SG Standard '61 can do it all from clean country to heavy metal.
The body is home to the tried and trusted ABR-1 tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, which anchor each string securely for a seamless connection that upholds intonation and sustain. The headstock is equipped with vintage deluxe with keystone buttons to maintain tuning integrity with absolute precision. A classic black pickguard protects the upper bout beneath the strings, which complements the vintage cherry beautifully.
