Why We Love This Product!

A Lightweight Rock Monster!

Just like they used to build 'em! Originally built to be a replacement for the Les Paul Standard, the Gibson SG quickly became a popular axe with guitarists of the day. The Gibson SG '61 Reissue is a re-creation of that legendary guitar. The neck is the very comfy and very quick 1960 slim taper profile and a pair of vintage-correct humbuckers provide the grit and grind. Looking back, it's hard to believe Gibson ever considered replacing the Les Paul, but since the SG sprang forth from this decision, it was clearly meant to be. Own a piece of guitar history with the SG '61 Reissue.

Born in 1961, the Gibson SG is a rock legend. Seeing time in the hands of some of the world's most influential guitarists, the SG's "lean and mean" demeanor has cemented its place in the hearts of guitarists that like their tone a little on the rude side. The lightweight body was a welcome change of pace from the historically heavy Les Paul, but despite its lower weight, the SG was loaded with tone. And fast! The slimmer, faster neck of the SG caught the attention of shredders, which propelled the SG to new heights as a hard rock machine.
