Description

Details

The Gibson SG Special Electric Guitar has all the vintage-inspired looks and features associated with the late 60s style models that are highly sought after by many a guitar player. Although designed with the classics in mind this is a thoroughly modern guitar with a raft of premium appointments that will suit a variety of players, whether you're a classic rock aficionado or a modern hard rocker.

Mahogany 'Horns' Style Body

Those classic double cutaway 'horns' are well known the world over. From Zappa to Young to Iommi the SG has been synonymous with an array of professional players since it's inception and those striking looks have changed little since then. With an all Mahogany body construction, you get a warmth of tone and bags of sustain that's characteristic of the SG style guitar. Known for being a versatile workhorse the SG is comfortable with an assortment of styles, so whether you're playing metal, hard rock or even jazz this guitar can handle it all.

Slim Taper Neck

Joined to the double cutaway body is a Slim Taper profile Mahogany neck. Working in conjunction with the body the neck allows bends to ring out, fast legato to come with ease and riffing aplenty. The Rosewood fretboard is smooth and comfortable with 22 frets to ensure you hit every note when playing. The Acrylic Dot inlays ensure you never lose your way on even the darkest of stages.

Premier P90 Pickups

The P90 is widely regarded as Gibson's greatest ever pickup design. Originally produced in the 1940s it is technically a single-coil pickup, however there is less twang and more thickness, sitting somewhere between a traditional single coil and humbucker sound. Loaded with Alnico V magnets these pickups give you strong mids, full bass and harmonically complex trebles. They can do mellow warmth just as well as brutal bite and have been played by guitarists from all genres, so whether you play jazz, blues or rockabilly or punk, hard rock or metal, the P90 has got you covered.

Hard-Wearing Hardware

The Gibson SG Special has a Compensated Wraparound bridge so you can be assured of pinpoint intonation. Working in conjunction with the Vintage Deluxe tuning machines this combination ensures rock-solid tuning stability that will put up with hard picking and big string bends. The electronics are all hand wired and feature orange drop capacitors for the highest quality sound.

The Gibson SG Special Electric Guitar is a return to the classic shape and sound that has defined generations and sculpted genres. This early 60s style guitar has been heard on countless classic rock recordings and will find a place in any discerning guitarists collection.

Reviews
Posted on 06/10/2019 by This is amazing value for a prestige US made guitar. The pickups have such a characterful honk. The neck position sounds especially warm but biting enough to be heard over the other instruments on stage.
