The SG Story
When the Epiphone 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 made it the perfect guitar for stage and studio work. Later '60s models introduced the SG with humbucker pickups, and since then, the Epiphone SG has become the go to guitar for artists like The Who's Pete Townshend, Tony Iommi, Paul Weller, AC/DC's Angus Young, Eric Clapton and Derek Trucks of the Allman Brothers Band.
