Gibson SG Special Electric Guitar, Vintage Cherry SGSP00VECH
Gibson SG Special Electric Guitar, Vintage Cherry SGSP00VECH1
The double cut, batwing or whatever you wish to call it, the SG is the definitive rock guitar. Originally released in 1961 it was done without the knowledge of Les Paul himself, and he didn't like it. Paul was going through some difficult times himself and after ending his contract with Gibson the original 'Les Paul' name was eventually removed from the guitar and it was simply renamed the 'SG', meaning 'Solid Guitar'. The 'Special' model features a number of amendments to the original which helps to keep the cost more affordable for the end user, including the removal of the stylized neck binding, trapezoid fret inlays and mother-of-pearl. Notable players include Pete Townsend, Tony Iommi, Davey Lane, Angus Young (AC/DC) and many more.
The SG™ Special returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played, and loved -- shaping sound across generations and genres of music. This early 60s style SG Special has the vibe and sound heard on countless classic rock recordings. The comfortable, SlimTaper™ mahogany neck and bound rosewood fingerboard are well known for fast, effortless playing. The two P-90 pickups are noted for their fat snarl when driven and their smooth sweetness when played clean. The SG Special is equipped with the 3-way toggle switch and has hand-wired controls with Orange Drop® capacitors. A hardshell case is included.
