This 2006 Gibson SG '61 Reissue is in fantastic cosmetic and playing condition. This guitar has been professionally set up and plays like a dream up and down the fretboard. The frets show hardly any signs of play wear and have loads of life left in them. The neck profile is that of a 1961 Gibson carve and is thin and fast feeling with nice shoulders and a flat center. The bridge position pickup brings thunderous rock tones with a biting edge. The neck position pickup is fat and clear and perfect for clean tones and heavy overdriven sounds. The finish is extremely attractive and dark. The guitar has a real rosewood fingerboard unlike many more recent Gibson guitars. This guitar shows very few signs of play wear - a few pickguard scratches and tiny dings here and there, but nothing serious. All in all, a fantastic offering from the Gibson guitar company and a faithful reissue of the 1961 Gibson Les Paul SG with a few modern upgrades. A perfect guitar for any SG lover.
