Gibson's SG range has never been as diverse as it is in 2019, and the SG Special is one of the more unique models on offer. Featuring a pair of punchy P90 pickups and available in an elegant Faded Pelham Blue finish, this gorgeous guitar will seriously turn heads for both its tones and aesthetics!
This stunning guitar features Gibson’s signature tonewood combinations. With a Mahogany body, you can expect focused lows and a rich mid-range attack, despite the SG's thin body design.
Paired with a set Mahogany neck, this long-established type of construction gives the SG Special fantastic sustain and warmth. Adorned with a silky smooth Rosewood fingerboard, you can effortlessly glide up and down the neck, especially with the modern Slim Taper neck profile.
Electronics & Hardware
SGs are usually powered by humbuckers, but the 2019 SG Special is loaded with a double-dose of P90s. These pickups deliver a strong mid-range with far more bark and potency than their dual-coil counterparts, making them more articulate-sounding with both clean and overdriven tones.
The SG Special features a wraparound tailpiece as opposed to a tune-o-matic bridge design. However, with its compensated design, intonation won't be an issue!
