Gibson SG Standard '61 Model Solid Body Electric Guitar (2019), made in Kalamazoo, Michigan, serial # 122090257, cherry lacquer finish, mahogany body and neck, rosewood fingerboard, original black tolex hard shell case.

This guitar is a nicely done re-issue of the 1961-62 Les Paul/SG standard, lacking only the short-lived "Les Paul" markings of the original. The hardware is correct without being EXACTLY period authentic, but all look and work well together. The neck is just a bit chunkier than most original '61s but retains the fairly flat profile characteristic of this period's SGs. Even the quirky side-to-side trem unit has been re-created in all its eccentric glory. Gibson's "BurstBucker '61" pickups are designed to retain more of the characteristic highs of the original PAFs than many other re-creations, giving this SG a brighter, more fluid sound which still cranks up to raunch easily enough. This is a nice example of Gibson re-engineering its classic instruments for the modern world without losing the original charm.
 
Overall length is 39 3/4 in. (101 cm.), 13 1/4 in. (33.6 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 1 1/4 in. (3.2 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 24 3/4 in. (629 mm.). Width of nut is 1 11/16 in. (43 mm.).

This guitar appears hardly played, showing just some light handling marks. It is complete in the original brown case with the strap and paperwork. Near Mint Condition.
