Product Description

Now everyone can afford a real SG! The SG Special from Epihone features twin open-coil Humbucking pickups, a Tune-o-matic bridge/Stopbar tailpiece combo for maximum sustain and a fully-carved SG body for devilish good looks.

From the Manufacturer

Epiphone SG Special with KillPot Guitar

Now with a KillPot

The Epiphone SG Special is an incredible way to get real SG tone and styling without breaking the bank. In 1961, the original Les Paul shape was redesigned into a light, double-cutaway design. That new design soon became known as the "SG" which is now, along with the original Les Paul, the iconic rock guitar. Epiphone's G-400 and G-310 SG models, featuring the carved SG-body shape and SG sound, have been best sellers in the guitar market for over 15 years at a "workingman's" price. Now comes the SG Special, the most affordable SG on the market today with all the features that you've come to expect from Epiphone.

A Real SG Made Right

The SG Special, with its devilish double-cutaway design is the ultimate design for chording and solos giving players access to all 22 frets. A bolt-on Hard maple neck with a classic SlimTaper "D" profile provides rigidity and durability and the 24.75" scale rosewood fingerboard make it easy (and fast!) on your fingers.

Classic SG Sound

In the early '60s, SG's switched from P-90s to humbuckers, a sound heard round the world in hits by AC/DC, The Beatles, The Jam, Frank Zappa, and The Who. The SG Special features a pair of hot, open-coil, noise-free humbucker pickups voiced specifically for the bridge position (700T) and neck position (650R) to give you authentic rock tone with just the right amount of grit and growl.

Epiphone Premium Features

Even though the SG-Special is the most affordable SG in the line-up, it still features Epiphone's patented LockTone Tune-o-Matic bridge and StopBar tailpiece for increased sustain and easy string changing. The master volume and master tone controls each feature full-size 500K potentiometers along with Epiphone's rugged all-metal 3-way toggle pickup selector switch for long-lasting, dependable performance. The SG Special features solid nickel hardware and is available in both Cherry and Ebony finishes. To top it all off, Epiphone has added a patented combination Tone/Killpot control. Turn it, and it works like a regular tone control. Push it in, and you have a momentary "Kill" switch which mutes all output for crazy Buckethead-like effects.

About Epiphone

Epiphone is one of American's oldest and most revered instrument makers and since 1873, Epiphone has made instruments for every style of popular music. The name evokes both history and the spirit of invention. Epiphone has been an audible presence in every great musical era from the mandolin craze of the early 1900s to jazz age guitars of the 1920s. From swing-era archtops through post-war pop, jazz, R&B, and early rock n' roll. From the "British Invasion" to heavy metal, punk, grunge, and thrash. And now, in the 21st century, new Epiphone technical breakthroughs such as the ProBucker pickup, series parallel switching, built-in KillSwitch pots, the Shadow NanoFlex and NanoMag pickup systems, and premier acoustic/electric guitars with the eSonic preamp have brought the historic name to a new generation.
