The Original Hellraiser
Aggressive crunch. Snarling bite. Ferocious tone. There's a lot of things the Epiphone SG Standard 61' w/ Maestro Vibrola is famous for. Since its inception in the 1960s, this versatile axe has changed the course of heavy music for good. Now it's back to build on its epic legacy, and give the future of guitar playing the punch it deserves.
Vintage meets modern. The Standard 61' is every bit as fierce as the original legend. Fitted with two Probucker pickups, you're sure to get a bite that's just as strong as its bark. Get ready to let your tone off the leash. Both humbuckers work together to bring you tight, responsive low end, glassy, screaming highs, and everything in between. This is versatility like you've never heard it before.
Full tonal control for the versatile guitarist. With three way pickup selector, tone, and volume pots on board, you have all the tools you need to dial in the ultimate guitar sound. Whether you love to lay licks or prefer to keep the rhythm, the SG has got you covered.
The Guitar that Shaped Classic Rock and Metal
An iconic design. The SG was forged from fire and brimstone. With its signature double pointed cutaways, you'd be mistaken for thinking this guitar has the horns of the devil. But don't be intimidated by its devastating good looks. The Epiphone SG Standard is smooth to the touch, fitting snugly in your hands with its contoured curves. Crafted from solid mahogany, this is an axe that resonates with the full force of both pickups.
Go from 0 – 100 on a slim taper neck that helps players shred even faster. Whether you're riffing up high or chugging down low, you'll always find it easy to play your riffs. No strain. No hard work. No problem.
The SG is the ultimate partner in crime for seasoned slayers and total beginners alike. Every note is accessible thanks to a 24.75" scale length and 12" fingerboard radius. But it's the Indian Laurel fretboard that's the SG's true secret weapon. Alongside effortless playability, this impressive tonewood resonates with crunchy sustain. Rock and metal just got a new hero.
Play Your Best. No Matter Where You Are
Great tone is nothing without great tuning. With the Epiphone SG Standard 61', you get both. Every single performance. Discover impeccable intonation from a Locktone ABR bridge.
