The Gibson SG Special is the latest incarnation of the no-nonsense classic! A legend in its own right, the SG Special is a stripped back version of the SG Standard and comes loaded with a pair of pokey P90 pickups.
Staying true to its roots, the SG Special utilizes a solid mahogany body, with that classic double cutaway design and is finished in Gloss Nitrocellulose Lacquer.
The double cutaway body is married to a solid mahogany neck that has been carved into a highly playable SlimTaper profile. The neck is then topped with a bound rosewood fingerboard with 12" radius and hosts 22 medium jumbo frets and dot inlays. The 24.75" scale, 1.695" (43.05mm) nut width, and vintage deluxe tuner with white buttons complete the traditional feel and look.
The SG Special comes loaded with a pair of P90 pickups. They are wired through the traditional 3-way pickup selector, 4 knob configuration (2 x volume and 2 x tone), with audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors. With this set-up this a versatile range of tones on hand, full of that fat, P90 snarl when driven and smooth, sweetness when played clean.
Other appointments include a Compensated Wraparound bridge, black Top Hats knobs with silver reflectors and a Graph Tech nut,
The package comes complete with a Gibson hard shell case.
