SG Standard ’61 Faded Maestro Vibrola



The Choice of Legends – Now in a Beautiful Faded Finish

The SG™ Standard ‘61 Faded Maestro™ Vibrola™ returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played, and loved — shaping sound across generations and genres of music. It features a satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish that gives it the look and feel of a long-treasured musical companion. As the name implies, the Gibson SG Standard ’61 Faded Maestro Vibrola also adds vibrato capability. The Maestro Vibrola offers smooth vibrato effects and the classic styling of the Lyre engraving on the tailpiece cover. Standard features include a SlimTaper™ mahogany neck and a bound rosewood fingerboard. The mahogany body features deeply sculpted body scarfing, a 5-ply teardrop pickguard, and a 22nd-fret neck joint. The nickel-plated hardware includes an ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic™ bridge and Keystone tuners in addition to the Maestro Vibrola Tailpiece. The pickups are open-coil 60s Burstbucker™ humbuckers™ for a classic voice with added power and top end. Controls feature audio taper potentiometers and Orange Drop® capacitors. gibson sg tribute

The searing sounds of an gibson sg tribute

Vibrant vintage roars. If you’re searching for PAF-like tones with extra edge and attitude, these open core BurstBuckers are for you. Voiced to capture the sonics of those hot rodded ’60s pickups, you’ve got plenty of growl and punch to command, with a bright top end to make your notes really stand out. And thanks to the open core design, they’ll pick up every detail of your strings for a maximum output and full bodied tone.

At the neck is the BurstBucker 61R that has a slightly thicker presence, excellent for fat chords and chunky rhythms. If you’re in need of a little more cut and crunch, then flick over to the bridge position’s 61T for a focused and more biting tone. Selectable through a three way switch and complete with audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors, these offer delicate, authentic sounds that can be shaped to your exact taste.

SG level playability

It’s no secret. You only have to look at an SG to see that they are inviting riff machines, and it’s no different on the SG Standard ’61 Vibrato. Presenting you with the trademark SlimTaper neck and a quality, luscious rosewood fretboard, it’s a surface that’s ready for all manner of riffing. Enjoy a solid grip on the neck profile, as well as plenty of room on the fingerboard for technical playing. And that extends all the way up the 22 frets, with tonnes of room at even the highest scales for showstopping leads and creative ideas.
