Gibson Custom SG Standard VOS Reissue Features:

Burstbucker pickups with three-way toggle switch
When you really want to cook on a solo or deliver some thunderous power chords, you reach for a guitar that’s got a pair of humbuckers, right? Forget all those thin “out-of-phase” guitar sounds that the session players overused in the 1980s and (sad to say) right through much of the ’90s. That’s not for you. Your sound is all about the warmth, punch and midrange complexity you can only get from humbuckers. With that in mind, the Vintage Original Spec SG Standard Reissue comes with a smoking hot pair of Burstbuckers – a Burstbucker 1 in the neck and a Burstbucker 2 in the bridge – for the ultimate in tone along with Gibson’s standard layout of two volume and two tone controls and a three-position toggle switch.

Authentic ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge and Maestro Vibrola tailpiece
One of Gibson’s many accomplishments during the 1950s was the development of the tune-o-matic bridge, which allowed for precise intonation of each and every string. The patent for the design, which Gibson designated as the ABR-1, was granted to Gibson president Ted McCarty, a fact that’s never been in dispute, though it wasn’t until more recently that McCarty’s many innovations have truly been recognized. Since some 1960s SGs shipped with Gibson’s unique Maestro Vibrola, which effectively replaced the earlier Bigsbys.

Solid mahogany neck with long neck tenon and rosewood fingerboard
The SG Standard, which was Gibson’s premier solidbody electric after the company discontinued the Les paul line, was produced with the slim-taper mahogany neck, making it among the fastest ever designed. The Vintage Original Spec SG Standard Reissue reproduces that ultra fast profile with the historically accurate long neck tenon. If you like the combination of a fast mahogany neck with the warmth of the traditional rosewood fingerboard plus the nearly limitless access to the upper frets that’s an SG trademark, you’ll love the SG Standard Vintage Original Spec Reissue. It’s fully bound and includes accurate acrylic trapezoid position markers and those distinctive vintage “tulip” tuners.
