Summary: Gibson’s Nashville’s SG Standard ’61 pays tribute to the first model year of the legendary solidbody electric guitar — small pickguard, vintage cherry finish, and all. The SG Standard ’61 is spec’d with a pair of Burstbucker ‘61s, a fast & comfortable SlimTaper neck with a fully bound, Plek’d rosewood fretboard with trapezoidal inlays. This Gibson is in mint condition and was barely played at all. We have just set this SG up with 10 gauge strings, low action and a straight neck.

Body: Solid mahogany body with cherry nitrocellulose lacquer, small black pickguard and comfortable contours.

Neck: The slim taper neck has 22 frets, bound rosewood fingerboard, 24.75" scale length and 1.695"-wide Tektoid nut. The frets have been Plek’d at the Gibson factory for perfectly leveled frets.

Pickups/Hardware: Burstbucker ‘61R in the neck and the Burstbucker ‘61T in the bridge sound great, it has a 3 way toggle, 2 volumes, 2 tones, Gibson Deluxe tuners with green Keystone buttons, tune-o-matic bridge and Maestro Vibrola unit.

Cosmetics: This guitar is nearly brand new and was barely played. It has no blemishes to mention aside from a few light pick scratches on the pickguard.

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has just inspected, setup and restrung this guitar with a new set of 10s. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functioning and the action has been setup low and comfortable. The frets are in great shape with no grooves or divots from use and it plays beautifully up and down the fingerboard with no dead spots or choking out.
