SG Standard ’61 Sideways Vibrola Vibrato With More Vibe

The SG Standard ‘61 Sideways Vibrola returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played and loved — shaping sound across generations and genres of music. As the name implies, the Gibson SG Standard ’61 Sideways Vibrola is equipped with the unique Sideways side-pull action vibrato similar to those found on the early 60’s models. Standard features include a slim taper mahogany neck and a bound rosewood fingerboard. The mahogany body features a deeply sculpted body scarfing, a 5-ply teardrop pickguard and a 22nd-fret neck joint. The nickel plated hardware includes a classic-style Tune-O-Matic bridge and keystone tuners in addition to the Sideways Vibrola Tailpiece. The pickups are 61R and 61T humbuckers for a classic voice with added power and top end. Controls feature audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors.
