Dream come true
Aoidhrí, 09.06.2020
Always wanted this guitar after seeing George Harrison with one many years ago. Didn't disappoint, still settling in, but beautiful tone, gorgeous action, and a stunner of a guitar.

Une guitare attachante mais...
Coolfix, 27.04.2020
Je vais commencer par ce qui fâche pour terminer par les bons points.
Si de nombreux magazines saluent Gibson pour avoir retrouvé le niveau de qualité des meilleures années, il semble que la production soit erratique.
Pour ma part j'ai eu droit à des traces rouges un peu partout sur le binding, une bonne partie peut s'enlever en briquant un peu, mais pas celles sous le vernis au niveau de quelques frettes et du sillet...
Le binding est crénelé au niveau de la touche par endroit et il y a des micro éclats de vernis à la jonction avec la touche.
Le câble de masse était mal positionné et ne faisait pas contact avec le vibrato et donc les cordes, à corriger en démontant le vibrato pour éliminer l'horrible buzz.
La tige du vibrato est très très serrée mais l'écrou du dessous se met à vibrer si on le desserre juste un peu.
Un léger poc sur le vernis du manche.
La touche en palissandre très sèche. 

Bref messieurs dames de chez Gibson prenez 10 minutes supplémentaires pour donner un coup de chiffon avant d'appliquer le vernis, passer un petit coup de ponçage au bord du binding, vérifier que la guitare est bien reliée à la masse et nourrir la touche.

Maintenant que c'est dit il faut reconnaitre que c'est malgré tout un super instrument. Le manche est un plutôt épais mais très confortable et ne ralentit pas le jeu, les frettes sont extrêmement bien finies, les potards sont très réactifs et permettent un réglage très juste et le son est super!
L'odeur du vernis est addictive comme toujours chez Gibson.
Un instrument attachant.

Mehr als nur Zufrieden!
Garlandt, 02.10.2019
Diese VOS TREM Modelle waren schon immer mein Traum! die 64' war bisschen zu teuer für mich, aber die 61' kann sich wirklich sehen lassen!
Optisch: sehr schön und präzise verarbeitet, hatte zwar Angst, da Gibson hier und da mal echt negative Bewertungen hat, bezüglich Quality Control, aber ich kann da nichts rummeckern! Gut verarbeidet, und verdammt schick das Teil!
Haptisch: Hab ich wirklich nichts auszusetzen. Trotz des Bügels und Tremolo immer noch leichter als Schwester Paula, und das Neck liegt wunderbar in der Hand, gut verarbeitet und Schmal.
Und in der Höhe natürlich verdammt viel Platz für die Soli. ;)
Sound: Ich kaufte mir davor die Gibson SG Standard 2019, welche schon einen echt tollen Sound hatte, aber als ich die 61' Standard Maestro VC anschloss: Wow! der Sound haute mich richtig um!
Clean: Kann man echt nicht meckern!
Overdrive: perfekt für Blues und Country!
Distortion: Also, jeder der AC/DC, Airbourne und weitere Sachen in richtung Hard Rock spielt, der wird überaus zufrieden sein! Ein richtig schöner rockiger, schlampiger Sound ala Back in Black Style!

Mein Fazit: Ich wartete sehr lange, das Gibson diese Modelle wieder raushaut, und ich wurde nicht enttäuscht!
Sound, Look, Verarbeitung, alles Top!

Du mordant !
Matew, 10.05.2021
Après 1 an d'utilisation en guitare principale; c'est une tuerie ! Alors on peut jouer un peut de tout mais personnellement je la préfère en son crunch / disto. Le micro chevalet étant assez aigue avec pleins de mordant on perce bien le mix. Le manche est super agréable (slim taper), faut s'y faire la main un peut dessus car la position de jeux est un peut différente qu'une strat ou Lespaul (normal c'est une SG !).
Seul petit défaut pour moi: le sélecteur est défectueux après 3 / 4 mois d'utilisation le son coupe lorsque je passe du micro chevalet à manche. Dommage lorsqu'on investi ce prix dans une guitare neuve.
Quoi qu'il en soit, je joue principalement des reprises rock (50's à aujourd'hui) et elle s'en sort très bien ! Légère et forte en caractère
