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 SG Special is made of a renowned mahogany body and neck combo, and is dressed in a retro finish – some things you just won’t want to change. Its ‘60s SlimTaper neck is an excellent addition, making the SG brilliantly fast and comfortable to play.
Paired with a 12” fingerboard radius and medium jumbo frets, the SG provides an authentic, lively playing experience. Hardware specs include a Graph Tech nut and a LockTone ABR bridge for solid tuning stability.
Before Gibson standardised the humbucker across their range, the SG was equipped with P90 pickups. These are single coil pickups providing a high output, powerful tone that doesn’t require much heat to get aggressive. Otherwise known as the soapbar, P90s excel in anything from jazz, through blues and into rock. The P-90 PRO pickups in the Special are fully waxed potted to eliminate unwanted mic feedback.
