    Classic SG Styling
    When the 'SG' double cutaway electric guitar was first released, it was intended to take the place of the Les Paul,which was discontinued throughout most of the 60s. Lightweight yet powerful, the SG became a hard rock classic and was embraced by a wide range of players including Eric Clapton, the Allman Brothers, Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath, and Pete Townshend of The Who. The new SG-Special VE™ has the same iconic design with a Poplar body with a Mahogany veneer and a black pickguard. The bolt-on Mahogany neck has a 1960's SlimTaper™ D profile, a standard SG scale length of 24.75 inches, a fingerboard with pearloid dot inlays, and 22 medium jumbo frets. The 'Clipped Ear' style headstock has a 60s era Epiphone logo in silver and a '2017' Edition logo on the back of headstock.

    Open Coil Humbuckers with Ceramic Magnets
    The SG-Special VE™ is powered by two Epiphone open-coil humbuckers with ceramic magnets. Owners of vintage SGs and Les Pauls often remove their pickup covers for a better bass response and magnetic pull. Ceramic pickups have a higher output than vintage Alnico magnet pickups and are designed to provide a tight low-end response with both a smooth mid-range and a slightly more pronounced top end tone. Ceramic magnets have been a favourite of metal and hard rock guitarists for decades. The SG-Special VE™ has a 650R™ in the rhythm position and a slightly 'hotter' 700T in the lead position. Controls include a Master Volume and Master Tone with traditional black 'Speed' knobs and a 3-way pickup selector.

    Rock Solid Epiphone Hardware
    The new SG-Special VE™ features Epiphone-designed rock solid hardware including the classic SG style LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, a non-rotating 1/4 inch output jack, and premium die-cast 14:1 ratio machine heads for fast and accurate tuning.
