Gibson's SG range has never been as diverse. The SG Special is one of the more unique models on offer, featuring a pair of snarling P90 pickups and available in an elegant Faded Pelham Blue finish. This gorgeous guitar will turn heads for both its tones and classic style.
Body & Neck
The SG Special is constructed using 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 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 Slim Taper neck profile.
SG guitars are usually powered by humbuckers, but the SG Special is loaded with a double-dose of P90s. These pickups deliver a strong fat mid-range with far more bark and potency than their dual-coil counterparts, making them more articulate-sounding with both clean and overdriven tones.
It’s equipped with a super comfortable compensated wraparound bridge with chrome plating to extend its lifetime before rust sets in. The Graph Tech nut ensures excellent sound transfer and tuning capabilities.
