Epiphone's '61 SG Standard is part of their all-new Inspired by Gibson Collection, and is a faithful recreation of the rare 1961 SG, from the first year of its existence. With its classic mahogany body, chrome hardware, tulip tuners, and Vintage Cherry finish, this guitar exudes the vibe of the '61 Gibson orginal, and sounds just as great as it looks. Its ProBucker humbuckers do a fantastic job of capturing that late-fifties/early-sixties "P.A.F." sound. These pickups are built with top notch components, such as sand cast Alnico II magnets, vacuum wax pots that eliminate microphonics, and 18% nickel silver, the same alloy used by Gibson at the Kalamazoo factory when the humbucker was first invented. With its classic aesthetics, tone, and rock-solid playability, the Epiphone SG Standard '61 is a truly insiring axe.
