After giving guitarists a glimpse of its celebratory SG offerings during Winter NAMM season earlier this year, Gibson has officially released two all-new 60th Anniversary Custom Shop electric guitars – the 1961 Cherry Red VOS Standard and the 1961 Polaris White VOS Custom.

Described as detailed recreations of the original 1961 model, the elegant six-string show-stoppers seek to provide players with a wealth of historically accurate features and classic early-era Gibson tones.
