Mahogany 'Horns' Style Body

Those classic double cutaway 'horns' are well known the world over. From Zappa to Young to Iommi the SG has been synonymous with an array of professional players since it's inception and those striking looks have changed little since then. The SG Standard 61 retains the styling of the original featuring deeply sculpted body scarfing and with an all Mahogany body construction, you get a warmth of tone and bags of sustain that's characteristic of the SG style guitar. Known for being a versatile workhorse the SG is comfortable with an assortment of styles, so whether you're playing metal, hard rock or even jazz this guitar can handle it all.

Slim Taper Neck

Joined to the double cutaway body is a Slim Taper profile Mahogany neck. Working in conjunction with the body the neck allows bends to ring out, fast legato to come with ease and riffing aplenty. The Rosewood fretboard is smooth and comfortable with 22 frets to ensure you hit every note when playing. The Acrylic Trapezoid inlays give you those classic Gibson looks whilst ensuring you never lose your way on even the darkest of stages.

Brilliant Burstbuckers

The Gibson SG Standard 61 has a pair of Burstbucker 61 pickups with Alnico V magnets, to give you all those classic rock and blues tones utilised by legendary players the world over. With the characteristic Burstbucker bite you get clarity and depth of tone whether you're chicken or tremolo picking. The electronics have audio taper potentiometers and are hand wired with Orange Drop Capacitors to ensure consistent and quality tone, having been used by Gibson for years for good reason.

Hard-Wearing Hardware

Featuring the tried and tested classic Gibson ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge alongside an Aluminium Stop Bar tailpiece the Gibson SG Standard 61 has fantastic intonation, with notes in tune all the way up and down the neck. Paired with Vintage Deluxe tuners you're assured of rock steady tuning stability through the hardest down picking or largest string bends and the Keystone Buttons keep to the classic aesthetics of this striking looking guitar.

Originally conceived as a replacement for the initially unsuccessful Les Paul, the SG or 'Solid Guitar' managed to carve a niche of its own, becoming an icon in its own right. The Gibson SG Standard 61 Electric Guitar in Vintage Cherry has all the classic looks and styling of the original with all the craftsmanship and playability you'd expect from a modern Gibson.
