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.
ABR-1 Tune-o-matic Bridge
The standard for simplicity & functionality
The ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge was the brainchild of legendary Gibson president Ted McCarty in 1954, setting a standard for simplicity and functionality that has never been bettered. The ABR-1 is slotted directly into the body of the guitar using a separate stud and thumbwheel, providing a firm seating for the strings and allowing players the ability to adjust and fine tune intonation and string height in a matter of minutes. It also yields a great union between the strings and body, which results in excellent vintage tone and sustain.
