Regardless of the fact that George Harrison & Eric Clapton rocked a '64 SG Standard, that model year was clearly a standout for SGs in general. The clunky side-pull vibrato had been replaced by the dependable Maestro Vibrola. The neck profiles had increased in size, resembling the profile found on 1959 Les Pauls. The balance, playability & look of the SG seemed to come into its own. Along with the Maestro Vibrola and chunky neck profile, it has all the hyper-accurate vintage specs one could possibly want - original construction methods, a real red aniline dye finish, chemically-recreated plastics, replica electronics & more. The result is perhaps the best looking, feeling & sounding SG Reissue yet.
