Gibson Custom Shop 1964 SG Standard Reissue w/ Maestro Vibrola Murphy Lab Light Aged, Antique Pelham Blue
Gibson Custom Shop 1964 SG Standard Reissue w/ Maestro Vibrola Murphy Lab Light Aged Electric Guitar, Antique Pelham Blue
Regardless of the fact that George Harrison and Eric Clapton rocked a '64 SG Standard, that model year was clearly a standout for SGs in general. The clunky side-pull vibrato had been replaced by the dependable Maestro Vibrola. The neck profiles had increased in size, resembling the profile found on 1959 Les Pauls. And the balance, playability and look of the SG seemed to come into its own. Replay Guitar Exchange is absolutely excited to offer the amazing choice of legends — the Custom Shop Gibson 1964 SG Standard Reissue w/ Maestro Vibrola Murphy Lab Light Aged electric guitar!
Masterfully-built in America from the pinnacle craftsmanship of the Gibson Custom Shop, this SG roars with thunderous throwbacks, built from a one-piece solid lightweight mahogany body with a nitro-lacquer Murphy Lab Light Aged Antique Pelham Blue finish — paired with lightly aged hardware, it simulated decades of light play-wear, giving it the unique character, vibe and feel of an original example from the Gibson golden era.
The solid mahogany neck has an authentic '64 medium C-shape, comfortable and smooth, and home to an Indian rosewood fingerboard with twenty-two authentic medium jumbo frets and cellulose nitrate trapezoid inlays. A pair of powerful Custombucker Alnico 3 unpotted pickups are installed, controlled by two volume, two tones and a three-way toggle switch with Black Beauty capacitors, giving you a wicked vintage voice. Rounded off by the Maestro Vibrola tailpiece for added versatility, this guitar does everything you need and more.
With all of the hyper-accurate vintage specs one could possibly want — original construction methods, a real red aniline dye finish, chemically-recreated plastics, replica electronics and more — the 1964 SG Standard Reissue is perhapes the best looking, feeling and sounding SG Reissue yet, and it's available for you now at Replay Guitar Exchange!
