Lean, mean, and ready to rock, this early '60s style Gibson SG Special has all the same mojo as the very first SG's that shook the music world 60 years ago. Fit with snarling P-90s and a wicked fast neck, this Gibson SG Special is a powerful new take on a time-tested classic.

Comfort and playability were central to Gibson's design of this SG Special. That's why it sports an all-mahogany body that not only produces a rich, resonant tone but balances surprisingly well whether you're seated or standing. This Gibson SG has a sleek SlimTaper neck, giving it a great in-hand feel that makes riffing away for hours immensely enjoyable. And, with a buffed rolled-edge rosewood fingerboard and Plek'd frets, this axe offers ultra-fast and precise fretting.

Powering this beast is a pair of versatile P-90 pickups that pump out their own brand of grit and sizzle. These pickups have a high output and a biting treble that cuts through the mix perfectly when shredding lead lines with the volume maxed out. If you're looking for a little more aggression, run these pickups through a high-gain tube amp and your favorite fuzz effect to channel all the grind, bark, and growl you could ever want. Dial the volume back, though, and you'll find that these pickups project a surprisingly sweet and articulate tone. Simply put, these pickups are going to sound great no matter what you do with them.

Complete with Vintage Kluson tuners, a compensated wraparound bridge, and a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish, this Gibson SG Special is a time-honored rock and roll machine.
