From Gibson -

“The 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 an all new 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 nickel plated 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.”

This guitar was bought new by its one owner in 2021, and looked after very well. It presents as a new guitar in every way – no marks, dings, dents, modifications, and no issues. The protective film is still on the pickguard.

It is light, super comfortable, responsive, resonant, and plays cleanly up and down the neck.  This Gibson SG Standard ’61 in Vintage Cherry is in perfect, as new condition and represents a nice saving on new price.

Comes in its Gibson hard case in new condition.
