Powerful Pickups

Loaded with a pair of Epiphone open coil humbuckers, the SG Special produces a sound which will captivate any rock fan. The pickup's range maintains clarity yet emulates rich and subtle tones with a smooth midrange and a more pronounced cut on the top end. The pickups consist of a 650R humbucker at the neck and a 700T humbucker at the bridge; which together can satisfy a whole range of different styles.

Iconic SG Body

The SG Special features a mahogany body which is crafted into the classic SG body shape with elegant and comfortable contours. Accompanied by a black pickguard and a vintage Cherry finish, the look and feel of the SG Special is just like the original yet is available at a more accessible price. With its mahogany body, the Epiphone SG Special delivers a warm and resonant tone, while still being well balanced and with plenty of good grind and bite.

Okoume Neck & Rosewood Fingerboard

The SG Special Guitar's neck is made from okoume which offers bright and light tones, and the neck has a tapered heel that allows easy access to the higher frets for added comfort. The bolt-on okoume neck provides more high end bite and grind, as well as plenty of snappy tones; and it is coupled with a warm rosewood fingerboard, ideal for creating articulate tones that are soft yet punchy.

History Of the SG

First released in the 60s, the SG was intended to take over from the recently discontinued Les Paul. The lightweight and power SG took the music world by storm, used by many popular rock players such as Eric Clapton, The Allman Brothers, Tony Lommi of Black Sabbath, and Pete Townshead of The Who.
