Solidbody Electric Guitar with Mahogany Body, Mahogany neck, Indian Laurel Fretboard and 2 P-90 PRO pickups
Epiphone has resurrected a rock icon with the release of the SG Special (P-90). As part of Epiphone’s new Inspired by Gibson Collection, the SG Special offers Musician’s Friend customers classic Gibson models at an accessible price. The Epiphone SG Special is loaded with a set of powerful Epiphone P-90 PRO pickups, plus a reinvented version of the legendary Kalamazoo headstock shape. If you love a good vintage look, like we at Musician’s Friend do, you’ll appreciate the 1960s Gibson-styled hardware, including a Lighting Bolt Wrap Around bridge and ivory-buttoned tuners. With the Epiphone SG Special, you can travel back in time and play like rock royalty.
Powered by P-90 Pickups and the Past
The Epiphone SG Special draws inspiration from Gibson’s ’60s-era models for both style and sound. It comes packed with a pair of P-90 PRO pickups that are largely based on Seth Lover’s iconic single-coil designs. At Musician’s Friend, we love this pickup design because it puts out a serious tonal attack. These pickups are incredibly versatile and offer up their own kind of crunch.
Slim Neck and Solid Mahogany Body
At Musicians Friend, we’re fans of the Epiphone SG Special’s 1960s SlimTaper neck. It’s got a fast touch and smooth playability, and is also thinner than its ’50s-style cousins, providing you with more sustain and comfort all night long. This Epiphone SG Special also features a 22-fret fretboard made of Indian laurel and a Graph Tech nut.
Classic Vintage Hardware for a Classy Look
Aside from boasting a body and neck that’s designed for ultimate playability, the Epiphone SG Special looks as good as it sounds with its 1960s Gibson-styled hardware. It features a Lightning Bolt Wrap Around bridge and Epiphone Deluxe Vintage machine heads adorned with ivory buttons. It also features a reinvented version of the iconic Kalamazoo headstock shape.
