Rock Icon

The Gibson SG Special is a rock icon. Immortalized by Santana at Woodstock and smashed onstage by Townsend, the SG Special owns a piece of rock history. This Nashville-made SG is the real deal, giving you a pair of Dirty Fingers Humbuckers and an SG Taper neck with action that's almost non-existant. The SG's lightweight mahogany body gives you great sustain and no pain - even if you play all night. And the nitrocellulose lacquer finish looks and feels luscious, while enhancing the tone of this legendary rock machine. Own your own piece of rock history - the Gibson SG Special.

Gibson SG Special at a Glance:
  • SG taper mahogany neck
  • Nitrocellulose finish
  • Dirty Fingers humbuckers
SG taper mahogany neck

The Gibson SG Special is famous for its comfortable, fast-action neck. Whether you're chording down low or soloing up high, the distinctive SG taper always feels just right. With its slick obeche fingerboard and iconic double-horned cutaway that gives you access to all 22 frets, this SG Special's a lean, mean rock machine.

Nitrocellulose finish

The Gibson SG Special wears a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes - standard back in the '60s and '70s - are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to "breathe." Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful; they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities.

Dirty Fingers humbuckers

This Gibson SG Special is fitted with a pair of Gibson's Dirty Fingers humbuckers. One of Gibson'e hottest pickups, Dirty Fingers 'buckers spit out equal extremes of muscle and musicality. Along with massive, bold sound and incredible power, this ceramic-magnet pickup serves up amazing clarity for a design of its type, giving you a fast track to major-league distortion for soaring leads and crunching rhythm work. Unlike most Gibson humbuckers, Dirty Fingers incorporates adjustable steel pole pieces on both coils.
