This is the electric guitar that every kid dreams about growing up. This Gibson Custom Shop SG Standard VOS (Vintage Original Spec) captures everything that a rock n' roll guitar aspires to be.

Very smooth neck joint allows you to bend the highest notes without blinking an eye. Looking to increase the stagnant sales numbers of the Les Paul Standard models of the mid- to late-1950s, Gibson president Ted McCarty and his reputable team of luthiers and engineers set out to redesign the company’s solid body guitar. The result was the introduction in 1961 of what is known today as the Gibson SG line. The first use of the name “SG” actually surfaced on a Gibson guitar in late 1959 with the introduction of the SG Special – a double cutaway model with rounded horns that had previously been listed as a Les Paul since 1955. In early 1961, however, the Les Paul models would undergo a radical change in design in an effort to improve their popularity and furhter establish Gibson's reputation as a quality builder of electric solid body guitars. Includes original hardshell case and certificate of authenticity.
