The SG Standard 61 Maestro 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 Maestro Vibrola adds vibrato capability to the SG Standard '61. The Maestro Vibrola offers smooth vibrato effects and the classic styling of the Lyre engraving on the tailpiece cover. Standard features include a slim taper mahogany neck and a bound rosewood fingerboard. The mahogany body features a deeply sculpted body scarf, a 5-ply teardrop pickguard and a 22nd-fret neck joint. The nickel plated hardware includes a classic-style TuneO-Matic bridge and keystone tuners in addition to the Maestro 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.

Finish Available: Vintage Cherry

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreOshawa, Ontario
I went to the Long and McQuade in Oshawa to inquire if they ever get a Gibson SG Standard '61 Maestro Vibrola - Vintage Cherry. They said that they would give me a call when they did. I remember seeing them in the early 70’s. Low and behold the store manger called me. So I went after work to check it out. The store manger brought it out and we did a box opening. When I touched the neck the for the first time, I new this guitar was coming home with me. I took the guitar home, plugged it in and I couldn’t put it down. I just loved playing it . The staff at the Long and McQuade Oshawa are very knowledgeable and always there to help. The quality of the guitar amazing. Gibson you’re on the right track!! Thomas

I bought this guitar at the Cambridge store great staff as well. All I have to say being that I've owned many SGS this one's fantastic. Such a joy to play and great whammy bar as well. The 61 pickups sound great. Thank you Cambridge for such a nice guitar and a very unique one as well.
