The Gibson SG Standard ’61 Faded Maestro Vibrola electric guitar returns to the classic, much-loved design that shaped sound across generations and genres of music. It features a satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish that gives it the look and feel of a long-treasure musical companion. It offers smooth vibrato effects and the classic styling of the Lyre engraving on the tailpiece cover. The SG Standard ’61 comes with a SlimTaper mahogany neck and a bound rosewood fingerboard. The mahogany body has deeply sculpted body scarfing, a 5-ply teardrop pickguard and a 22nd-fret neck joint. The nickel-plated hardware includes an ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge and Vintage Deluxe tuners. The pickups are open-coil ’60s Burstbuckers for a classic voice with added power and top end, and the controls feature audio taper potentiometers and Orange Drop capacitors.
