About Gibson SG Special
The Gibson SG Special is a stripped back, uniquely affordable iteration of Gibson's beloved SG guitar. Sitting between the SG Faded and the SG Standard in the range, the SG Special has a sound and vibe all of its own. The most recent SG Special has cool features including mini humbuckers and small block inlays - all features of older Gibson guitars such as the Firebird and the ES-335 - to discern it from other SG models.
Sonically, the combination of set neck Mahogany construction and mini humbuckers reveals a sound that is thick and tight with plenty of attack. This is fantastic in any situation when you have lots of leads to play! The mini humbuckers still 'buck' the hum but allow a sound that has echoes of single coils about it.
The SG Special has a satin nitrocellulose finish, like all other Gibson models. It is available online or to see in person at any of our guitarguitar stores.
