Epiphone 1961 Les Paul SG Standard in Aged Classic White



Made in partnership with the Gibson Custom Shop, this Inspired by Gibson™ model is Epiphone’s impressive recreation of one of the most important and popular guitar designs of all time. The Epiphone 1961 Les Paul™ SG™ Standard pays tribute to the legendary original - the very first SG. In 1961, the original shape of the Les Paul model went on hiatus, replaced by an all-new design that is known today as the SG or “solid guitar.” Featuring a two-piece solid mahogany, double-cutaway body with Custom Shop Historic bevels, it also has the one-piece mahogany, fast-playing SlimTaper™ C-shaped neck profile of those legendary early Les Paul SG models. It also has a historically inspired long pickguard and comes equipped with a pair of Gibson™ BurstBucker™ humbucking pickups wired to CTS® potentiometers and Mallory™ capacitors, a Graph Tech® nut, and Switchcraft® output jack and toggle switch. The Epiphone Deluxe tuners feature a historically inspired double ring design. It is available in Aged Sixties Cherry and Aged Classic White. Of course, all of the legendary SG styling and cosmetic touches are here too, and a vintage-style hardshell case is also included.

Exceptional playability

The SG was always designed to offer an impeccable performance, and, true to the original, this guitar's performance is exceptional. A one-piece mahogany SlimTaper C neck delivers unrivalled playability, guaranteeing a comfortable grasp of the guitar, meaning you can remain in full control of the guitar whilst still jumping to and from the extremes of the fretboard. The Indian laurel fretboard enhances this experience, ensuring an unblemished crisp surface to effortlessly glide across, without any hinderance.

Bursting with sound

Rock and roll has always been at the heart of the SG’s creation, and this Epiphone model doesn’t differ. Crafted in close partnership with the Gibson Custom Shop, Epiphone have managed to produce an SG model that is faithful to the original Gibson guitars. Equipped with two Gibson BurstBucker pickups, the guitar's natural tone is excellently captured. Possessing elevated dynamic sensitivity and a blissful crunch, these make for a truly delightful tone. Easily shaped with two separate volume and tone dials, and a three-way selector switch the guitar can be utilised in more genres than just Rock.

Hardworking Hardware

Every piece of this instrument’s hardware works to offer the utmost stability it can. An Epiphone LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge ensures string tension and intonation is consistent. When combined with Epiphone’s lock tone stop bar, you make those practice sessions last longer without tuning breaks and tonal mishaps, allowing you to shine in the band room or glow on stage. This is all neatly brought together with a set of Epiphone deluxe tuning machines, topping off this beautiful instrument.
