SG guitar in the style of the early sixties

The Gibson SG Standard '61 Faded Maestro Vibrola Vintage Cherry picks up the design and feel of the original '61 guitar and proves to be a first-class blues and rock guitar. In addition to the mahogany body in the official double-horned contour cut, Gibson relies on a narrow "slim taper" mahogany neck for excellent playing characteristics up to the highest registers. Gibson '60s burstbuckers with open coils and hand-wired circuitry evoke the spirit of the fabled PAFs, providing powerful clean and drive tones at the guitar amp. Last but not least, Gibson equips the SG Standard '61 Faded Maestro Vibrola Vintage Cherry with the tried and true Hardware in the form of Maestro Vibrato tailpiece, ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge and Vintage Deluxe tuners.

Full mahogany guitar in set-neck construction

For the construction of the SG Standard '61 Maestro Vibrola Gibson naturally falls back on the official set-neck construction with neck and body made of mahogany, which in combination with the thin satin nitro finish creates the basis for a powerful and sustain-rich sound. While the official doublecut design promises a comfortable handling of the guitar both sitting and standing, the slim "Slim Taper" neck profile guarantees agile playing characteristics in all positions of the 22-fret rosewood fingerboard.

Gibson '60s burstbucker pickups and hand-wired circuitry with Orange Drop capacitors deliver authentic vintage tones.

'60s Burstbucker

Two Gibson '60s burstbuckers in the open-coil version are responsible for the electrical sound transformation of the SG Standard ' 61 Maestro Vibrola Vintage Cherry guitar. Using classic Alnico V magnets and non-waxed, uneven-wound coils, the pickups clearly take their cue from the fabled PAF humbuckers of the golden era, eliciting not only creamy overdrive tones for Blues and rock, but also airy cleans for soulful chord and melody playing. A hand-wired circuit with high-quality Orange Drop capacitors and separate volume and tone pots for each pickup also allows precise adjustment of the sound.

Six Gibson Vintage Deluxe Keystone tuners promise high tuning stability.

Tradition-conscious hardware equipment

Of course, Gibson completes the SG Standard '61 Faded Maestro Vibrola Vintage Cherry electric guitar with reliable hardware in tradition-conscious vintage style. While the Maestro Vibrola 's smooth response encourages shimmering vibrato embellishments of melodies and chords, the ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge designed by legendary Gibson president Ted McCarty provides generous adjustments for accurate intonation and comfortable string action. On the "Open Book" headstock, Gibson Vintage Deluxe tuners also keep the electric guitar securely and stably in the correct tuning.
