From Our Research Team:
The Return of the Original SG!The Gibson SG Original takes you back to the beginning of one of the most iconic solidbody electric guitars in all of rock history. Back in 1961, this "new and improved Les Paul model" may have been rejected by Les Paul himself (who wasn't thrilled by the thinner body, which sported strange beveled edges and horn-like cutaways) but a whole new generation of guitarists thought it was pretty cool. Featuring a period-correct mahogany body, PAF-style '57 Classic humbuckers, and a genuine Lyre tailpiece, nothing captures the original 1961 model the way this Gibson SG Original guitar does.
Gibson 2013 SG Original Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
'57 Classic humbuckers deliver spot-on PAF tone
The pickups that Gibson gave their 2013 SG Original electric guitar are as true to the sound of the original 1961 model as it gets. That's because Gibson originally engineered their '57 Classic humbuckers to capture the warmth, smooth playing dynamics, and overall character of their breakthrough PAFs. When you think of the slightly rude sound of classic rock, you're already imagining the tone you'll hear when you play your SG Original through classic tube amp set to 11.
You just can't beat the feel of this slim SG neck
This Gibson SG Original gives you the smooth feel and fast action of Gibson's SG slim profile neck. Early Les Pauls had huge necks, but by 1960 the neck underwent several modifications, eventually becoming the standard SlimTaper carve. This SG Original takes the evolution of fast Gibson guitar neck carves one step farther, making this the fastest off-the-shelf SG ever designed. And when you add to that the ultra-smooth feel of its bound rosewood fingerboard, you get the best of both comfort and performance from the 2013 Gibson SG Original.
Vintage-style Lyre tailpiece gives you cool vibrato action
It simply wouldn't be an authentic 1961-style Gibson SG without the genuine Lyre tailpiece. This rare vibrato tailpiece splits the difference between the long, slow, and subtle bends you'd get from a Bigsby and the dive-bomb action of a floating trem, providing your SG Original with an extremely diverse range of note bending possibilities. In other words, you won't just enjoy the vintage look of this Lyre tailpiece, you'll love what it does for your action.
