Gibson Sg Standard 61 Ebony


The SGTM Standard ’61 returns to the traditional design that made it relevant, playable, and adored – defining sound throughout decades and musical genres. The Les PaulTM model was discontinued in 1961, and an entirely new design evolved into what is now known as the SG or “solid guitar.”

The Gibson SG Standard ’61 keeps the original’s design, with a SlimTaperTM mahogany neck and bound rosewood fingerboard. The body is made of mahogany and has beautifully sculpted body scarfing, a 5-ply teardrop pickguard, and a 22nd-fret neck joint. The nickel-plated hardware includes a Tune-O-MaticTM bridge in the vintage manner and Vintage Deluxe tuners with Keystone buttons.

The pickups are Burstbucker humbuckersTM in the 60s for a vintage sound with additional power and top end. Audio taper potentiometers and Orange Drop® capacitors are used in the hand-wired controls. There is a hardshell case provided.

Gibson Sg Standard 61 Ebony

The Gibson Sg Standard 61 Ebony model was discontinued in 1961, and Gibson introduced an all-new design that would mold the sound of generations: the renowned SG, or Solid Guitar. With vintage-accurate embellishments and cutting-edge upgrades for today’s players, the Gibson Sg Standard 61 Ebony brings that revolutionary energy roaring back to life.

Iconic Body, Legendary Tone

The Gibson Sg Standard 61 Ebony double-cutaway mahogany body is a rock icon, as sleek and unique today as it was back then. With improved output and definition, two powerful Burstbucker 61 pickups create the tones that drove rock’s golden period.

The quick, comfortable mahogany neck and bound rosewood fingerboard allow for fluid playability, while nickel hardware, including a Tune-O-Matic bridge, maintains tuning stability during epic solos and thunderous riffs.

Modern Versatility and Control

While the Gibson Sg Standard 61 Ebony pays homage to the past, it is designed for the present. The 61R and 61T pickups are wired to separate volume and tone knobs, providing for a variety of tones ranging from warm and rounded to scorching and biting. A 3-way toggle switch selects the neck, bridge, or both pickups. Orange Drop capacitors produce a pleasing musical tone in any context.

Road-Ready and Stage-Tested

Light, resonant and perfectly balanced, the Gibson Sg Standard 61 Ebony is made to perform. Plek’d frets provide effortless playability while a 1.695″ nut width gives comfortable string spacing. Aluminum Nashville tuners with keystone buttons keep the SG Standard ’61 in tune through the fiercest solos. A hard-shell case is included, ensuring this rock legend will inspire generations to come.
