Gibson SG Standard '61 Maestro Vibrola - Vintage Cherry
The Gibson SG Standard 61 Maestro Vibrola, as the name implies, takes the SG Standard 61 model and adds vibrato capability. This is a great take on the classic SG, delivering a host of period correct appointments, those iconic double cutaway looks and a sound to match!
True to its roots, the SG Standard 61 Maestro Vibrola utilizes a solid mahogany body with deeply sculpted body scarfing and is finished in Gloss Nitrocellulose Lacquer. With the addition of a Maestro Vibrola smooth vibrato effects are on hand with the addition of the classic styling of the Lyre engraving on the tailpiece cover. Its Vintage Cherry colour is as classic as you can get, and is the perfect choice for any SG fan.
The double cutaway body is married to a solid mahogany neck that has been carved into a highly playable SlimTaper profile. The neck is then topped with a bound rosewood fingerboard with 12" radius and hosts 22 medium jumbo frets and Trapezoid inlays. The 24.75" scale, 1.69" (43.05mm) nut width, and vintage deluxe tuner with keystone buttons complete the traditional feel and look.
A pair of humbuckers in the form of the Burstbucker 61R in the neck and Burstbucker 61T bridge position feature. The pickups are wired through the traditional 3-way pickup selector, 4 knob configuration (2 x volume and 2 x tone), with audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors. Combined, this classic electronic setup gives you access to those classic SG tones with added power and top end bite.
Other appointments include the classic ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge, and black top hat knobs with silver reflectors.
The package comes complete with a Gibson hard shell case.
