Solidbody Electric Guitar with Mahogany Body and Neck, Ebony Fingerboard, 3 Humbucking Pickups, and Vibrato Tailpiece - Classic White :
Flawless Re-creation of the ’61 SG Les Paul Custom
The year 1961 was particularly significant for the Gibson Les Paul. Namely, its familiar chunky, single-cutaway maple-topped body was replaced with a sleekly sculpted, all-mahogany double-cutaway body design that three years hence would become known as the SG. The Gibson Custom 60th Anniversary 1961 SG Les Paul Custom VOS celebrates this historic solidbody electric guitar with a masterful reissue, handcrafted by Gibson’s Custom Shop luthiers with fastidious attention to prototypical detail, top-shelf tonewoods, and high-performance electronics. Featuring a fast ’61 Thin-profile neck, a Plek’d-to-perfection ebony fretboard, a trio of vintage-voiced Custombucker pickups, a period-correct Sideways Vibrola tailpiece, and elegant aged gold hardware, the 60th Anniversary 1961 SG Les Paul Custom VOS gives you flawless modern playability, optimized vintage sonics, and the classic visuals of an iconic guitar that rocked the world.
Three Custombuckers deliver legendary tone
Guitarists at Sweetwater absolutely adore the Custom Shop Custombucker pickups in the 60th Anniversary 1961 SG Les Paul Custom VOS. Packed with power and soul, these amazing pickups will let you nail chimey country licks as easily as you dial in searing rock tones. Catnip for tube amplifiers, Custombuckers deliver classic tone for everything from warm jazz to dirty blues. And handwired with CTS vintage-taper pots and Black Beauty capacitors, you’ll have nearly endless tone-shaping control at your fingertips.
Handcrafted by Gibson’s elite luthiers
Painstakingly handcrafted by Gibson’s elite luthiers in the company’s Nashville Custom Shop using only the finest materials, this high-end instrument — like every Gibson Custom guitar — is optimized for playability before leaving the factory. The fingerboard is polished and beveled with rolled edges, then given the Plek Pro treatment. Plek Pro is a state-of-the-art, computer-guided process that analyzes neck relief and the height of the nut and bridge. The machine then scans, levels, and dresses your guitar’s frets to a microscopic level of accuracy for perfect intonation and ideal action with no fret buzz, loss of sustain, or fretting out when bending strings. This guitar’s Plek’d frets ensure that every note in every position rings true and clear with unblemished tone.
Nitro finish, for the look and feel of a classic
Gibson gave the 60th Anniversary 1961 SG Les Paul Custom VOS a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes — standard back in the day — are significantly thinner than today’s polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to "breathe." Nitro finishes not only look amazing; they also enhance the instrument’s tonal qualities. The 60th Anniversary 1961 SG Les Paul Custom VOS has the look, feel, and sound of a lovingly cared-for classic — one that will only improve with age.
