The Gibson 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, slim taper mahogany neck and bound rosewood fingerboard is well known for fast, effortless playing. The two P-90 pickups are noted for their fat, snarl when driven and for their smooth, sweetness when played clean. The SG Special is equipped with the 3-way toggle switch, handwired controls and orange drop capacitors.
