Contrary to popular belief, electric guitars are an instrument that requires you to master two very different things. One is, of course, the playing technique, but the other is utilizing the hardware of that guitar and that of the amplifier in order to dial in a great tone.

The Epiphone SG Muse, from the new Inspired by Gibson Collection, is based on a rock icon that takes you back to the formative years of the legendary solidbody electric guitar in all its glory. The SG Muse features a fast, comfortable Custom "C" profile neck and bound Indian laurel fingerboard that provides an effortless playing experience, while its lightweight, sleekly contoured mahogany body delivers great sustain and no pain, even when you gig all night. And that fat, snarling tone — it’s to die for! High-output Alnico Classic Pro humbuckers with coil-splitting and polarity controls, plus a treble bleed circuit that maintains clarity at when you dial back the volume, let you nail the perfect tone for any recording session or live gig. Available in a rainbow of vibrant metallic finishes, the Epiphone SG Muse will command attention whenever you take the stage.
The Epiphone SG Muse has a Custom "C" mahogany neck. Early Les Pauls had huge necks, but by 1960, the neck underwent several modifications until it became what’s known as the SlimTaper profile. The SG took it one step farther, making its neck among the fastest ever designed. The Custom "C" neck profile on the SG Muse combines the best of both worlds — still quite slim, but with a tad more girth to fill your hand in just the right way.
