Own your piece of rock history, with the Gibson SG '61 Reissue Satin.

Gibson SG '61 Reissue Satin at a Glance:

SlimTaper neck profile for lightning-fast playability

The Gibson SG is famous for its comfortable, fast-action neck, and the '61 Reissue Satin doesn't disappoint. Whether you're chording down low or soloing up high, this guitar's SlimTaper neck profile always feels just right. With its baked maple fingerboard and iconic double-horned cutaway that gives you easy access to all 22 frets, the SG '61 Reissue Satin is a lean, classic rock machine.

Nitrocellulose finish, for the look of a well-aged classic

The Gibson SG '61 Reissue Satin wears a gorgeous hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes - standard back in the '60s - are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to "breathe." Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful; they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities. This guitar has the look (and feel) of a well-aged classic.

'57 Classic humbuckers give you amazing tonal versatility, power, and sustain

This Gibson SG '61 Reissue Satin is fitted with a pair of Gibson's PAF-style '57 Classic humbuckers. These pickups sport authentic Alnico II magnets, and are wound with 42-AWG enamel-coated wire - just like the originals. The coils are wax potted to ward off microphonic squeal, making them the perfect pups for your high-gain excesses. Classically routed through independent volume and tone controls, this dynamic duo serves up articulate, warm voicings from the neck position, soaring liquid bridge tones, and a broad range of sweet crunch in between.

  • Light weight Grade-A mahogany body
