A rock and roll icon now available in a worn satin finish.

The light bulb. Television and radio. The microwave oven. Gibson’s SG – all inspirations of genius that transformed the way we live. Gibson’s redesign of the Les Paul in 1960 was a bold move. But it paid off big time. It announced a new, radical electric guitar design for Gibson, and the world. It also inspired a rebellious generation of ideas and music rarely experienced before, and certainly not since.

Today, that same radical design – and restless spirit – lives on in Gibson’s celebrated SG (short for solid guitar) line. The Gibson SG ’61 Reissue pays tribute to this revolutionary guitar. It’s all there, in all its original glory. With features such as solid mahogany body and neck construction, its signature slim-taper neck profile, and Gibson's '57 Classic humbuckers, it is a faithful recreation of the 1961 Les Paul. And now, with a grain-textured satin nitrocellulose finish that makes this SG feel like an old friend right out of the bag, this guitar has all the ingredients that made the '61 SG legendary, at a price any hard-gigging guitarist can afford.

Transform your playing. Revolutionize your life. Buy the Gibson SG ’61 Reissue today and experience your own uprising firsthand.

        Comments about Gibson SG61 Satin Finish Electric Guitar:

        The new 2013 Gibson SG Standard costs 200 more, but you get the same '57 Classic pickups, a nitro finish- instead of satin AND REAL ROSEWOOD FRETBOARD!!! I played it last weekend, and it is AWESOME!! Do yourself a favor and try one. The new SG Standard is basically the same thing as the 61 Reissue, but with a smaller headstock.

        Comments about Gibson SG61 Satin Finish Electric Guitar:

        This SG is everything a Gibson should be. it's got the classic feel & sound.
        it will take a good set up to get the most out of this guitar. but all guitars should be set up to the player's taste. so this is not a big thing.
        the 57 pups are excellent! it's not a high gain/metal pup, you'll always be reaching for more vol on your knob. but with a nice marshall, these pups will give you the classic sound of the 60 brit rock.
