Detailed recreation of the iconic 1961 Les Paul SG Standard.
The Epiphone 1961 Les Paul SG Standard brings back the historic solidbody electric guitar design in an accessible package. Combining a traditional double-cutaway SG body shape with a fast-playing slim taper neck, this affordable Epiphone SG gives you vintage appeal with modern playability. The mahogany body and neck produce a warm, rich tone, while the Burstbucker humbucking pickups provide the classic rock crunch and singing leads the SG is known for. With its aged cherry finish and vintage styling, the 1961 Les Paul SG Standard lets you channel the tones of '60s rock legends.
Authentic Look and Feel With Aged Cherry Finish
The Epiphone 1961 Les Paul SG Standard nails the vintage vibe with its aged cherry finish. The worn look gives it the character of a well-loved classic. The double-cutaway mahogany body and slim taper mahogany neck provide a traditional SG playing feel. The aged binding and chrome hardware add to the '60s rock esthetic. Combined with the Burstbucker pickups, this affordable Epiphone SG gives you the style and sound of the historic 1961 Gibson SG.
Mahogany Body and Neck For Rich, Warm Tone
The Epiphone 1961 Les Paul SG Standard is made with a mahogany body and neck. Mahogany produces a warm, rounded tone with good sustain and resonance. This gives the SG a full sound with plenty of body. The mahogany neck also has a smooth, inviting feel. With its solid mahogany construction, this Epiphone SG guitar resonates beautifully and feels comfortable during long playing sessions.
Slim Taper Neck Profile For Fast Soloing
The Epiphone 1961 Les Paul SG Standard has a slim taper C-shaped neck profile that allows for easy riffing and fast soloing. The slim profile neck has a thinner depth front-to-back compared to many vintage SGs, making it effortless to play. The C-shape still fills your hand for comfortable chording. Combined with the smooth laurel fingerboard and rolled fingerboard edges, you can play at speed with ease. The slim taper neck gives this affordable Epiphone SG some modern playability.
Burstbucker Humbuckers For Classic Rock Tones
The Epiphone 1961 Les Paul SG Standard uses a pair of Alnico Burstbucker humbuckers for authentic rock and blues tones. The neck Burstbucker has a warm, round sound perfect for singing leads and bluesy licks. The bridge Burstbucker has more bite for aggressive riffing. Together, they cover a range of classic rock tones. The individual volume and tone controls let you dial in your perfect sound. Go for woman tone, treble bite or anything in between.
