The legendary sixties classic is back and better than ever in the Epiphone line-up. The Inspired by Gibson collection borrows the best bits from iconic instruments and adds contemporary construction, hardware and electronics to the mix.
The SG Special is made of a renowned mahogany body and neck combo, and is dressed in a retro finish – some things you just won’t want to change. Its ‘60s SlimTaper neck is an excellent addition, making the SG brilliantly fast and comfortable to play.
Paired with a 12” fingerboard radius and medium jumbo frets, the SG provides an authentic, lively playing experience. Hardware specs include a Graph Tech nut and a LockTone ABR bridge for solid tuning stability.
Before Gibson standardised the humbucker across their range, the SG was equipped with P90 pickups. These are single coil pickups providing a high output, powerful tone that doesn’t require much heat to get aggressive. Otherwise known as the soapbar, P90s excel in anything from jazz, through blues and into rock. The P-90 PRO pickups in the Special are fully waxed potted to eliminate unwanted mic feedback.
