Immortalized by the Rock Gods of yesteryear, the Gibson SG is as iconic visually as it is tonally - and here with this '63 Reissue, we have one of the most esteemed examples of such musical prestige.
A Regal Reissue
Gibson are taking you back to the year 1963 to experience this faithful recreation of their iconic, triple-pickup SG custom styled guitar, in all its vintage glory. Crafted in the fabled Gibson Custom Shop, this historic piece boats three classic humbucker-styled pickups, gleaming gold hardware and a unique Maestro Vibrola, appearing straight out of 1963.
Gibson 1963 Les Paul SG Custom Reissue w/ Maestro, 3 PU, Classic White Features:
- Gibson Custom Shop expert craftsmanship
- 1963 Aesthetics with Gold Hardware and a Classic White finish
- Vintage Tone with triple Custombucker Pickups
- Solid Ebony Fingerboard with Mother of Pearl Block Inlays
- Faithful Vintage Style Electronics
- Vintage Style 'Maestro Vibrola' Whammy-Bar
- Custom Shop Hardshell Case
Triple The Tone
Nothing looks more iconic on an SG body than a solid block of humbucker-style pickups. The triple set of Gibsons Custombucker pickups, shimmering in gold, remain one of the most historically accurate recreations of Gibsons highly revered '50's PAF style original pickups.
Ceasing production in 1962, original PAF's remain close to impossible to get hold of. Gibsons Custombuckers, combined with faithful vintage-styled electronics, effortlessly deliver on the promise of matching the original tone of the legendary '63 SG Custom.
Reinforced with thick Gibson tone, this guitar has no problems looking the part either. Built to VOS (Vintage Original Specification), Gibson aims to provide you with both the feel and the look of the original guitar, with lightly aged parts and a patina finish - giving you that vintage sensation in your playing.
Above all else, playability is the most important thing about any guitar and Gibson did not cut corners when it came to this reissue. With a robust, solid mahogany neck and a slim tapered vintage design, you'll feel the quality of this neck from the first time you wrap your hand around its curves.
Sitting atop the mahogany neck is a premium-cut ebony fretboard. The smooth and silky finish combined with the eye-catching pearl block inlays makes this fretboard a real luxury to play.
Perhaps the most visually striking and unique feature on the Gibson '63 SG Reissue is the Maestro Vibrola - one of the earliest tremolo systems to be used on Gibson guitars. Visually stunning and effortless in its application, this beautifully crafted tremolo arm systems allows you to add a flair of vibrato to your playing, whilst maintaining full tonal stability throughout.
