Classic SG Style, Designed for Modern Players

Gibson's SG Special 2016 HP solidbody electric guitar lets you pick up the sound, feel, and style of a vintage 1970s SG, plus a slew of modern performance-focused features. The SG70 neck profile combines with the wider Soloist neck width for a balance of old-school Gibson feel and modern playability. G-Force automatic tuning makes it easy to experiment with alternate tunings and is great for fast tune-ups between songs. And a Plek Pro fret treatment ensures precise playability, intonation, and tone. And thanks to a pair of Mini Humbuckers, your Gibson SG Special 2016 HP delivers enough output to drive any amp.

Gibson SG Special 2016 HP Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Gibson's Mini Humbuckers deliver broad and balanced tone
  • A new generation of fast-playing necks
  • Plek'd for precision playability
Gibson's Mini Humbuckers deliver broad and balanced tone

When Gibson reinvented their Mini Humbuckers, they gave guitars such as the SG Special 2016 HP a wider and more expressive range of tone. Dual steel blades and single Alnico V magnets provide you with copious output, and yet they still give the SG Special 2016 HP the vintage chime and open sound you want. And thanks to their calibrated windings, you'll be blown away by how well the Mini Humbucker bridge and neck pickups complement one another. You'll get both excellent rhythm and lead tones from your Gibson SG Special 2016 HP.

A new generation of fast-playing necks

The Gibson SG Special 2016 HP sports a fast, wide Soloist neck profile, perfect for modern players who balance rhythm and lead roles. The wider Soloist neck width gives you more room for big bends and tapping than the traditional neck width. It's a great balance for players who love traditional SG tone but prefer a faster, wider neck.

Plek'd for precision playability

This Gibson SG Special 2016 HP feels fast and precise, thanks in large part to Plek processing. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard you're likely to own. Each note rings loud and clear, and the fret edges feel smooth as silk.

Gibson SG Special 2016 HP Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • An amazing deal on a genuine US-made Gibson SG solidbody electric guitar
  • Plek'd for precision playability
  • The style and sound that practically define modern rock
  • Mini Humbucker pickups deliver broad and balanced tone with plenty of output
