Sg Standard '61 Maestro Vibrola Vs Sg Original 2013

Recommended Posts

I have the Sg Original From 2013. It was a two years run. Heritage Cherry 2013 and Dark Cherry 2014

So the difference Between the models

ABR1 Bridge - Nashville Bridge on 2013

500k Pots and orange capacitors- 300k pots on 2013

61t and 61r Humbucker- 57 classic on 2013

Speck on new say slim taper, on the Sg Original speck say Slim 60's. But mine is more rounded. Had the old 61 reissue, that was slim taper. Maybe the new one are like that?

Contours and bevels Looks identical, except the headstock on the 2013  a bigger mustache. The new more vintage Correct. But the 2013 looks cool

Mine is 1 piece body, think the new ones are that also

A pick of mine

I’ll take the 2013 SG Original all day, every day over the SG Standard 61.

Also, besides chrome hardware, and the addition of the Vibrola, they are identical to the ‘61 Reissues from 2003-2012, including, pups, large headstock and correct crown placement.

The headstock on the 61 reissue is slightly larger, at least on the '07 i sold a couple of years ago. Over the years i had a few sg's and to me i think  the Sg original has the nicest headstock 🙂

A Creamtone pickguard and a Gibson ABR-1 bridge it' s perfect . You can use those Faber adapters :

7mm ==> 6/32''
