Gibson SG 1961 Les Paul Standard 60th Anniversary VOS #106791


In 1961, the "Les Paul" lettering on the truss rod cover changed from the Les Paul Standard to a completely new model called the SG Les Paul Standard. This completely redesigned guitar was significantly lighter and slimmer than anything Gibson had done before, making it a serious competitor to guitars from sunny California. The "Solid Guitar", or "SG" for short, subsequently became a perennial favorite in the Gibson range and has long since iconic status. True to the motto "A solid hit for 60 years", because its distinctive sound can be clearly heard on countless albums. Reason enough for the Gibson Custom Shop to bring out a strictly limited reissue of this historic guitar icon under the name "1961 SG Les Paul Standard Anniversary", which can compete with the very best originals of that time. This 1961 SG Les Paul Standard 60th Anniversary is an excellent sounding guitar and undoubtedly carries the genes of its legendary role model. Definitely Vintage in its purest form! Due to the strictly limited edition, this 1961 SG Les Paul Standard Anniversary is a must-have for enthusiasts and collectors and, like all limited editions from Gibson, has a high appreciation potential.

The outfit of the 1961 SG Les Paul Standard Anniversary consists of a classic Cherry Red, which was by far the most popular finish for this guitar icon from Gibson in the 60 years of production. When crafting this exquisite 1961 SG Les Paul Custom Reissue, the Gibson Custom Shop placed extremely high value on authenticity and attention to detail. Only the very best woods were used for the body, neck and fretboard. The slim "Authentic '61 Thin" neck profile was implemented in a historically correct manner, which gives the 1961 SG Les Paul Standard Reissue a fantastic playability up to the highest frets. Historically correct fittings with Kluson single line tuners, ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge with nickel-plated brass saddles and the then new Sideways Vibrola testify to a high level of authenticity and attention to detail in the Gibson Custom Shop. Together with the "unpotted" Custombucker Alnico III pickups, which come damn close to the sound of the original PAF/patent No.'s, this is a guarantee for a top-class sound quality! Defined and snappy sound with plenty of power and sustain – perfect for punchy Blues and uncompromising Rock 'n' Roll! Finally, a hand-wired circuit with true-to-original "Black Beauty" capacitors and CTS potentiometers contributes to this. All in all, this is a great Gibson 1961 SG Les Paul Standard Reissue with absolute addictive character and lots of Vintage flair.
