A perfect recreation of an historic guitar.
The introduction of the remodeled Les Paul models of the early 1960s sought to bolster Gibson' reputation as a quality builder of electric solid body guitars, something the Les Pauls of the late 1950s had failed to do. And although those Les Paul models of the late 1950s would eventually become the world' most iconic six-stringed instruments, the introduction of the redesigned models in 1961 would also signal an important new era in electric solid body design.
Characterized by a much thinner body with two cutaways, pointed horns, beveled edges and no body binding, the new Les Paul failed to achieve the full approval of Les Paul himself, which lead to the removal of Les Paul' name in 1963 in favor of its new name, the SG. A painstaking recreation of the original, the SG Standard Reissue takes you 50 years back in time to a rare and powerful slice of rock history.
The SG Standard Reissue stays true to the specs of this iconic instrument. Its distinct features and legendary tone are meticulously remade with all the precision and accuracy expected from Gibson Custom, including its solid mahogany body with twin cutaways, pointed horns, beveled edges, nickel-plated hardware and lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece.
Other standard appointments include its cellulose trapezoid fingerboard inlays, single-ply binding along the fingerboard and a slim-neck profile. In addition to these details, the SG Standard Reissue also benefits from elements of the Gibson Custom 20th Anniversary Specifications”one-piece rosewood fingerboard, Kluson Deluxe machine heads, hot-hide glue neck fit, a Historic Truss Rod assembly with no tubing, accurate fingerboard binding color, Custom Buckers created in the image of the original PAFs, and period-correct Aniline dye for guitars finished in Faded Cherry.

Comments about Gibson Custom 2014 SG Standard Reissue Electric Guitar:
Ever see the commercial, where they warn you about an erection lasting more then five hours? I think Im supposed to call a doctor! All kidding aside, I have to say I am very happy with this ebony SG, its playability and tone is absolutely stellar. It's by far the best SG I've ever played. I can see where the extra fazools went. I'm a big believer, in the Gibson custom shop and the work they put in, the guitar is beautiful in every way. The guys in the private reserve shop were very helpful. No problem taking it out, and looking it over for me while I was on the phone. Even gave it a quick set up and new strings. I love this guitar.
