    The SG Story
    When the SG or 'Solid Guitar' was introduced in 1961 as a replacement for the Les Paul, it was called the 'fretless wonder' for its low frets and fast action. The twin horn cutaway design was like nothing on the market and its light but balanced weight and P90 pickups made it the perfect guitar for stage and studio. Not only was it lighter than a Les Paul but the SG's P90 pickups had more tone and clarity than single coil pickups yet still had all the bite and overtones of a humbucker. Some of the SG's biggest fans include The Who's Pete Townsend, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, Paul Weller, AC/DC's Angus Young, Frank Zappa, Derek Trucks of the Allman Brothers Band and Les Paul himself.
    Classic Vintage Styling and Unique Features
    Like the original, The Epiphone Limited Edition 50th Anniversary '1961' SG Special Outfit features a Mahogany body and Mahogany neck with a SlimTaper™ 1960's D-Profile. And like vintage SG's, the Epiphone '1961' SG Special Outfit has a handset 24.75 inch neck with a 12 inch radius, a Rosewood fingerboard, a 1.68 inch nut width for tuning stability during bends, Wilkinson™ Vintage 14:1 Ivory Button machine heads and a classic 60's era Epiphone logo on the headstock.
    Original Premium Electronics
    No detail of the Epiphone '1961' SG Special Outfit has been missed. The Alnico P-90R Soapbar neck pickup and the Alnico P-90T Soapbar bridge pickup are perfect for players who want elements of both single and double coil sounds in one pickup. P90's were preferred by early electric jazz guitarists for their horn-like tone on archtop guitars, but P90's really shine in solidbody guitars and the mix of mahogany and Alnico P90's gives the Epiphone '1961' SG Special a unique sound that is both modern and classic.
    The vintage style black controls with metal inserts include Neck Volume and Tone and Bridge Volume and Tone, allowing for an infinite variety of tone combinations. The all metal 3-way toggle switch is designed by Epiphone, and the Wrap-Around Lightning Bar™ Combination Stopbar Adjustable bridge provides tuning and intonation stability.
    To top it all off, each '1961' SG Special Outfit features a padded 1961 SG Model 50th Anniversary gig bag.
