A rock and roll icon now available in a worn satin finish.
The light bulb. Television and radio. The microwave oven. Gibson’s SG – all inspirations of genius that transformed the way we live. Gibson’s redesign of the Les Paul in 1960 was a bold move. But it paid off big time. It announced a new, radical electric guitar design for Gibson, and the world. It also inspired a rebellious generation of ideas and music rarely experienced before, and certainly not since.
Today, that same radical design – and restless spirit – lives on in Gibson’s celebrated SG (short for solid guitar) line. The Gibson SG ’61 Reissue pays tribute to this revolutionary guitar. It’s all there, in all its original glory. With features such as solid mahogany body and neck construction, its signature slim-taper neck profile, and Gibson's '57 Classic humbuckers, it is a faithful recreation of the 1961 Les Paul. And now, with a grain-textured satin nitrocellulose finish that makes this SG feel like an old friend right out of the bag, this guitar has all the ingredients that made the '61 SG legendary, at a price any hard-gigging guitarist can afford.
