The SG, Gibson’s best-selling guitar of all time, has had its horns deep in a wide variety of musicians since its introduction in 1961, when evolved it out of the famed Les Paul. The Gibson USA SG Standard ’61 2019 commemorates that famed redesign, offering authentic, period-correct styling and features like a Slim Taper mahogany neck with ‘60s-style joint, bound rosewood fingerboard, solid mahogany body with deep scarfing, 5-ply full-face pickguard, nickel-plated hardware set, and 61R and 61T humbucking pickups to round out this retro ripper. This guitar is left-handed.
About Gibson USA:
Luthier Orville Gibson founded the Gibson Mandolin-Guitar Mfg. Co. Ltd. in Kalamazoo, MI in 1902. Its original aim was to make mandolins and mandolin-family instruments. Over the last 100-plus years, Gibson Brands, Inc., as it is now known, has since evolved into the world’s premier manufacturer of semi-hollow and hollow body electric guitars, as well as a celebrated portfolio of innovative solid-body and acoustic models.
Nashville: the home of country music, and the home of Gibson USA. Producing all Gibson solid-bodies, Gibson’s Nashville facility is the place where great love affairs, and guitars like the Les Paul and the SG, are born.
