Gibson SG 61 Reissue

SG 61 Reissue

Available Colors: Heritage Cherry

The light bulb. Television and radio. The microwave oven. Gibson’s SG Standard – 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 line. The Gibson SG ’61 Reissue pays tribute to this revolutionary guitar. It’s all there, in all its original glory. Transform your playing. Revolutionize your life. Buy the Gibson SG ’61 Reissue today and experience your own uprising firsthand.
