The Gibson 2019 SG Special Electric Guitar is equipped with the same specifications and materials as the first issued models from the early 60's. The SG Special is loaded with two P-90 pickups for classic fat, single-coil tones and performance. Each model is supplied with a Gibson softshell case, as well as a Gibson accessory kit to ensure that you can keep yours in mint condition.
Classic double-cutaway body
The 2019 SG Special adheres to the classic double-cutaway "horns" body shape that we've all come to know and love. It features the same deeply sculpted body scarfing and a 22 fret neck/body joint as on the original models. The super-slim body depth pairs beautifully with the curvy shape and bevelled edges to establish a playing feel unlike any other. The body is crafted using mahogany, which establishes a rich energy with emphasised midrange to deliver that characteristic SG "bite". The body has been treated to a resilient coating of gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, which preserves the finish whilst affording a smooth playability.
Lightning fast neck
Joined to the body is a quarter sawn mahogany neck, which extends along a generous 24.75-inch scale length to encourage consistency of feel as well as a warm character from every note. It features a select Grade-A rosewood fingerboard home to 22 cryogenically-treated low frets with acrylic dot position inlays to guide your way. The 12-inch fingerboard radius lends itself well to accommodating seamless technique from lightning fast legato to smooth slide.
Gibson's P-90 pickups
Features a pair of P-90 single-coil pickups, fitted in the neck and bridge positions. Classic tones sing sweetly from these pickups to ensure as faithful a recreation as possible. The high output and powerful mid-range emphasis works harmoniously with the tonewoods to create rich, creamy tones that are beyond words. Give these beauties a push and the overdriven snarl will knock you off your feet. Whatever style of music that you play, the P-90s can do it all with ease.
The headstock is equipped with vintage deluxe tuning machines with white buttons to uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision. Fitted to the body is a compensated wraparound bridge, which anchors each string to create a seamless connection with the body for optimised intonation and sustain.
