The Gibson SG Standard 61 Maestro Vibrola in Vintage Cherry returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played, and loved -- shaping sound across generations and genres of music. Mahogany and rosewood keep the ingredients simple. Two Humbuckers make it sing and a Maestro Vibrola adds some real sweetness to the mix. This guitar weighs 8 lbs 3 oz.
As the name implies, the Gibson SG Standard '61 Maestro Vibrola adds vibrato capability to the SG Standard '61. The Maestro Vibrola offers smooth vibrato effects and the classic styling of the Lyre engraving on the tailpiece cover.
The mahogany body features a deeply sculpted body scarfing, a 5-ply teardrop pickguard, and a 22nd-fret neck joint. The lightweight Mahogany body looks gorgeous under the Vintage Cherry stain. The nickel-plated hardware includes a classic-style Tune-O-Matic bridge and keystone tuners in addition to the Maestro Vibrola Tailpiece.
A Mahogany neck is topped with a nice-looking rosewood fingerboard. The fingerboard is bound and inlaid with Acrylic Trapezoids. This gives us the classic Gibson look that has made many models the object of desire. A 12" fingerboard radius keeps the neck feeling flat, making this a natural Lead Guitarists dream. A Graph Tech nut and 1.69" Nut width round out the important neck specs.
A Pair of Burstbucker 61R and T Humbuckers come factory installed and are tied to their own volume and the controls via some CTS potentiometers. A 3-way pickup toggle selector grants access to each pickup individually or in tandem while orange Drop Capacitors allow you to sweeten up the tone perfectly.
