As the choice of rock 'n roll legends for decades, the original SG Special represented simplicity, versatility and monster tone. This time-honoured recreation is a clone of the cherished vintage originals, with all the modern playability and reliability you'd expect from the Gibson Custom Shop. It features authentic profiles, specs and construction methods for an incredible playing and ownership experience.
The Murphy Lab 'Ultra Light Aged' finish treatment, paired with lightly aged hardware, simulates decades of subtle playing wear — giving it the unique character, vibe and feel of an original example from Gibson's "Golden Era".
