Why We Love This Product!

Legendary SG Tone, Amazing Price!

Are you ready for an affordable version of a classic axe? Here it is! The Epiphone SG Special packs the punch of the legendary SG, but keeps the cost down. With a mahogany body and bolt-on neck, the heart and soul of the SG is alive and well with the SG Special. A stop tailpiece and tune-o-matic bridge and dual humbuckers complete the SG look and feel. Just because you're on a budget doesn't mean you don't need a screamin' guitar. The SG Special is that guitar!


What makes a great guitar? In the case of the SG, it's simplicity. Less ornate and refined than its maple-topped sibling, the SG has been (and still is!) the place where those in need of rock take refuge. The lean and mean mahogany body comes alive when you hit the strings and the dual-humbucker assault is perfect at driving (or overdriving) an amp. A favorite of hard rockers ranging from AC/DC to the Who to Black Sabbath (and far beyond), the SG is a real rock n' roll machine!
