Product Description

1961 was a year of groundbreaking new ideas and fresh designs over at Gibson. The legendary Ted McCarty, Gibson’s president at the time, had himself originally designed the SG to replace the Les Paul, which really does seem unthinkable in hindsight. It was eventually decided that the two models should coexist side-by-side going forward – and well . . . we should be eternally grateful for that decision and its impact on the music we know today!!!

The double-cutaway Gibson SG, known as the “solid guitar,” turns heads, fills ears with incredible tones, and captures the imagination. Stability, balance, and blistering speed are the hallmarks of this instrument – these are the reasons so many of history’s most influential guitarists have made the SG their instrument of choice. The Gibson SG is adaptable and is fully equipped to handle rock, blues, metal, pop, jazz, and a number of other musical stylings.

Gibson 2019 ’61 SG Standard Electric Guitar Features

  • From the newest line of SG double-cutaway electrics, painstakingly crafted and built to exacting ’61 specifications
  • Mahogany body and Slim Taper neck
  • Acrylic Trapezoid Inlay on a Rosewood Fingerboard
  • Vintage Deluxe tuners with Keystone Buttons
  • ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge and aluminum stopbar tailpiece provides stability 
  • Fitted with Gibson Humbuckers – Burstbucker 61R (neck) and Burstbucker 61T (bridge)
  • Eye-catching finish – Vintage Cherry
The brand new 2019 ’61 Gibson SG Standard captures the pure essence and feeling of those very first SG instruments, all while implementing modern build techniques and fresh design details to for today’s guitarists. A pair of Gibson humbuckers, the Burstbucker 61R and Burstbucker 61T, drive the Gibson ’61 SG Standard's voice and tonal flavor, while the consistency of the solid body provides outstanding playability. This 2019 SG radiates style and fearlessness and will bring your personal musical style to life – it’s just the guitar to accompany you anywhere!

To make the 2019 ’61 Gibson SG Standard's distinct double-cutaway a reality, Gibson luthiers started by carefully sculpting the body and neck out of solid mahogany. Both the Slim Taper neck and the carefully balanced body are all about speed and dexterity – the 2019 ’61 SG Standard brings steadiness and a relaxed feel to your playing. With this instrument, you’ll also enjoy a number of key Gibson appointments, the distinct black ‘top-hat’ knobs with silver reflectors, Vintage Deluxe tuners with Keystone Buttons, and the tasteful cream binding. The hardware has been chosen to ensure a reliable performance each and every time you pull it out to play – the ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge and Aluminum stopbar tailpiece anchor the instrument, and the nickel finish looks really looks cool!

The Gibson 2019 ’61 SG Standard with is fitted with two distinct, hard-working humbuckers - the Burstbucker 61R neck pickup and Burstbucker 61T bridge pickup. These Burstbucker family members, often referenced as ‘1961 Humbuckers’, are all about offset coil construction. It means that one of the two humbucker coils contains more windings than the other. This draws the sound oh-so-slightly toward the realm of the single-coil pickup, a bit more presence and drive. These Burstbucker ‘61s also incorporate the highly-adaptable Alnico 5 magnets into their design, which themselves are naturally higher output and a bit more touch-sensitive than the more commonplace Alnico 2s. The four ‘Push-Pull’ knobs (two volume, two tone) allow you to switch up the combinations between the neck and bridge pickups and you’ll be treated to a vast collection of tasty humbucking tones! The Gibson 2019 ’61 SG Standard possesses a tonal character that incorporates the tasteful presence of vintage goodness with a bit more modern energy and brightness – exactly the kind of sound palette you want from a modern, versatile electric guitar powerhouse.

The 2019 Gibson ’61 SG Standard Electric Guitar includes a hardshell case.

The SG is like what Zappa, Duane Allman and many others played,no tricks or modifications a strait up work of art that feels and sound amazing. Gibson is back and I am proud to play my new 2019 SG 61 standerd.

Gibson is Back
What is your opinion of this product?
2019 saw Gibson take a new direction after their near-bankruptcy. Getting back to basics seems to agree with the company. This guitar has better electronics, fit and finish, and tuning stability than previous years. The new 61-era Burstbuckers are perfect. This is much better than SG's I have played from just the last few years. I think it augers well for a better future at Gibson.

This is what an SG should be...
What is your opinion of this product?
If this is the direction that Gibson is going in the future,then it is definitely a step in the right direction.This SG typifies everything that I expect in a Gibson guitar.The fit and finish are excellent,playability is top notch,the price is reasonable and the sound is outstanding.I took it straight out of the case,with no additional setup and it played beautifully.Hopefully this will mark the end of the Q.C. problems that have marred the reputation of one of the greatest guitar companies in history.I think Mr. McCarty would be very proud of this guitar.

Easiest playing Gibson I've ever owned.
What is your opinion of this product?
I've had Les Pauls for 45 years but never had an SG until I bought this 2 months ago. 45 wasted years.
