Gibson SG Special 2018 Satin Cherry Guitar

The Gibson SG Special Electric Guitar, Satin Cherry (2018) delivers a classic style with incredibly powerful tonal possibilities. Its set of mini humbuckers offer a vintage feel and look but still manage to pack a powerful sonic punch. Independent tone and volume controls are all you need to dial in beautifully bright, crisp tones, while its mahogany body and neck ensures the guitar has plenty of warmth to its sound. The addition of a rosewood fingerboard helps enhance the natural tones of the mahogany, delivering extra sparkle to the high end while keeping the lows thick and the mids open. Its slim taper neck profile is perfect for delivering fluid hand manoeuvres, while the aluminium tune-o-matic bridge and vintage style keystones ensure tuners the guitar stays in tune. Finished in a satin cherry to enhancing the beautiful figuring of the mahogany, the Gibson SG Special is delivered in a softshell case to protect it during transportation and storage.

The Iconic SG Style

The Gibson Special features the iconic SG styled body crafted from lightweight mahogany, delivering a stunning appearance with a beautifully sweet, warm tonality. Its twin-horn cutaway design not only looks fierce, but provides incredible access to the upper frets for excellent freedom across the entire fingerboard. The mahogany is finished in a stunning satin cherry which shows off the natural figuring of the wood, while its thin and smooth design ensures players receive an incredibly comfortable performance.

Slim Taper Mahogany Neck

The Gibson guitar not only offers a comfortable body, but features a slim tapered neck profile to deliver an incredibly comfortable performance. The mahogany neck provides the ultimate comfort with its slim profile, and allows for fast and comfortable soloing. As well as providing fluid hand flexibility, the mahogany wood helps enhance the natural warmth of the body, creating a high-end saturated in sparkling sweetness and a thick low-end response. The addition of a rosewood fingerboard helps enhance the natural characteristics of the body, adding extra sparkle to the high end and opening up the midrange.

Mini Humbuckers

The 2018 version of the SG Special is equipped with a set of beautifully bright mini-humbuckers, designed with an incredible amount of sustain and note definition to suit a wide variety of playing styles. The small size adds to the amazing aesthetic of the SG and provides players with a classic, balanced tone when the two are used together. Independent volume and tone controls allow players to dial in incredible sonic options, while the hard wearing toggle switch offers players a range of tonal possibilities.

Aluminium Tune-O-Matic Bridge

The 2018 SG Electric Guitar features an aluminium Tune-O-Matic bridge, which is an extremely popular fixed bridge type due to its stability, reliability, comfortable playing position, and impressive sustain. Adjusting the string action and intonation is extremely simple with a tune-o-matic bridge, as you simply adjust its height with the mounting rods to alter the action, and screw the bridge saddles in or out to achieve perfect intonation.

TekToid Nut

The addition of a TekToid graphite nut offers increased harmonics in the middle and upper frequency range, perfect for creating a rich and detailed tone. TekToid Graphite is the best high-tech cure for eliminating undesirable friction within the nut, which can cause tuning problems. It is the ideal choice for a guitar nut, as it has excellent conductive qualities which overall benefit a guitar’s tone and sustain.
