Les Paul Meets SG in this Collectible Reissue!

Own a piece of history with the Gibson 1961 Les Paul SG '61 Reissue Limited Edition solidbody electric guitar! This special reissue is based on one of the few Les Paul models that used the now-legendary SG body style. The 1961 Les Paul GS '61 Reissue sports a pair of '57 Classic humbuckers, designed to give you the epic tone that Gibson's original PAF pickups are known for. And period correct details abound, including the sideways tremolo found on the original. Discerning Gibson collectors take note, Sweetwater won't have this Gibson 1961 Les Paul SG '61 Reissue for long!

Gibson 1961 Les Paul SG '61 Reissue Limited Edition Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Powerful, punchy pickups plus killer appointments
  • SlimTaper neck feels great and provides exceptional playability
  • A killer deal on a real, American-made Gibson guitar
Powerful, punchy pickups plus killer appointments

Two of Gibson's beloved '57 Classic humbuckers give the 1961 Les Paul SG '61 Reissue the power, punch, and clarity of Gibson's legendary PAF pickups. They're the perfect tonal foundation for rock and blues, letting you take your amplifier from clean to overdrive just by turning up your guitar's volume knobs.

SlimTaper neck feels great and provides exceptional playability

The Gibson 1961 Les Paul SG '61 Reissue sports a comfortable, fast-action neck with a '60s SlimTaper profile. Early Gibson guitars had huge, often ungainly necks. By 1960, Gibson had gradually carved down this profile into what became their SlimTaper neck. As your fingers move down this neck, the precisely controlled width-to-thickness ratio of the 1961 Les Paul SG '61 Reissue's SlimTaper neck provides you with a consistent, fast, and comfortable feel. It's no wonder many life-long guitar players consider the SlimTaper Gibson's finest neck.

A killer deal on a real, American-made Gibson guitar

The bottom line about this 1961 Les Paul SG '61 Reissue is that it's a real Gibson solidbody electric guitar. Ask anyone, and they'll tell you that the Gibson name still stands for something. American made and built to the standards Gibson has held to - despite rising manufacturing costs - you can feel proud when you pick up your 1961 Les Paul SG '61 Reissue electric guitar.
