SG guitar in the style of the early sixties for left-handers.

The Gibson SG Standard '61 Lefthand Vintage Cherry picks up the design and feel of the original '61 guitar and proves to be a first-class blues and rock guitar for left-handers. 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 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 Lefthand Vintage Cherry with the tried and true Hardware in the form of aluminum stop bar, ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge and Vintage Deluxe tuners.

The Gibson SG Standard '61 Lefthand Vintage Cherry comes in authentic Sixties styling and delivers premium blues and rock tones with '60s burstbucker pickups.

Full mahogany guitar in set-neck construction

For the construction of the SG Standard '61 for left-handers Gibson naturally falls back on the official set-neck construction with neck and body made of mahogany, which in combination with the thin Nitro-Finish creates the basis for a powerful and sustain-rich sound. While the official double-cut 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 SG Standard '61 Lefthand Vintage Cherry Body
Gibson '60s burstbucker pickups and hand-wired circuitry with Orange Drop capacitors deliver authentic vintage tones.

'60s Burstbucker

Two Gibson '60s bur stbuckers are responsible for the electrical sound transformation of the SG Standard ' 61 Lefthand 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.

GIBSON SG Standard '61 Lefthand Vintage Cherry Headstock
Six Gibson Vintage Deluxe Keystone tuners promise high tuning stability.

Tradition-conscious hardware equipment

Of course, Gibson completes the SG Standard '61 Lefthand Vintage Cherry electric guitar with reliable hardware in tradition-conscious vintage style. A stopbar tailpiece made of lightweight aluminum guides the strings over the proven ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge, which was developed by the legendary Gibson president Ted McCarty and provides generous adjustment options 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.
