Now you can enjoy the classic style and killer performance of the famous Epiphone SG-Special Electric Guitar without destroying your budget. Features include two open-coil humbuckers, LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece for more sustain and easier string changing, chrome hardware, and rosewood fingerboard. Limited lifetime warranty.Now everyone can own a real SG shape! The SG Special from Epiphone features twin open-coil Humbucker pickups, the Tune-o-matic bridge/Stopbar tailpiece combo for maximum sustain and a fully-carved SG body for devilish good looks.

Devilish good looks.

Twin open-coil humbuckers and the industry-standard Tune-O-Matic bridge.

Rosewood fretboard with dot inlays.

Angled Headstock
Unlike cheaper designs, all Epiphones feature a 14-degree headstock that gives you more pressure at the nut and so you get more sustain with less tuning hang-ups caused by “string-tree” gadgets.

Double-Waxed Pickups
Epiphone utilizes a double vacuum waxing process that ensures optimum performance. The pickup is first placed in the specialized wax vacuuming system before the cover is put in place to ensure that the wax fully penetrates to the very center of the pickup and solidifies all parts. After the cover is placed on, it is again given a second vacuum wax bath until the unit is completely saturated with wax.

Output Jack
To increase reliability and ensure consistent performance, Epiphone’s proprietary output jacks feature an improved contact shape and heavy-duty spring steel.

Toggle Switches
All Epiphones feature our all-metal, USA designed switches for reliable contact and longer life.

Tunomatic Bridge
Fully adjustable, the tunomatic remains a classic after over 50 years. Unlike guitars fitted with tremolos, there are no tuning or re-stringing difficulties. Plus, tone and sustain are improved because all string vibrations are transferred directly to the guitar.

Potentiometers
Epiphone is passionate about performance. That’s why their instruments use one-inch diameter potentiometers for better “throw,” longer life and reliable service.

Quick-Connectors
For unequalled reliability as well as ease of service, Epiphone wiring harnesses feature quick-connectors.

A cheap but decent beginners guitar Ok so i gave it 5 stars when in reality it is more like 3 stars. But who bothers to read the middle stars.Have been playing guitar for 20 years and have way too many guitars in my collection, i bought the Epiphone SG Special for a friend of mine who wanted to learn.He phoned me when he got it to say “thanks, but it’s rubbish”. Said it goes out of tune and it is very hard to play.The guitar just needed to be setup and with youtube these days there is no excuse for not doing basic setups yourself.First off guitars that are posted to you are affected by climate change, especially humidity(they are made of wood which moves and swells)) and have been setup up by the factory (if at all) usually many months before you buy it. It is extremely likely that sometimes they will be unplayable. But 95% can be easily remedied with a little knowledge.A lot of internet companies simply pass on the sealed guitar box they received from the distibutors,…

vs. coil and maple wood This guitar, when looked at from a technological point of view on produced sound, is ideal for a ‘custom’ metal sound. People say that the maple assists to the production of a ligther, thinner sound. The rosewood has no actual change to the sound. The humbuckers are more preferred to a coil, because it is responsible for a thicker sound. This combination is ideal if you belong to the metal, preferably death metal, genre.
