Add a 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret, vintage-correct appointments, and your choice of Cherry Stain Satin, Fireburst Satin, or Chocolate Satin finish, and the 2014 SG Special Bass looks every bit as gorgeous as it feels and sounds.
Body and neck
The bass is crafted from solid mahogany in the iconic double-cutaway SG style, with a glued-in, short-scale mahogany neck carved to a comfortable slim profile. Its rosewood fingerboard carries 20 jumbo frets, dot inlays, and a 120th Anniversary banner inlay at the 12th fret.
Pickups and electronics
The SG Special Bass’s deep, powerful T-Bird Plus pickup in the neck position and a smaller, punchier vintage-style T-Bird mini pickup in the bridge deliver titanic timbres. They’re routed through independent volume controls and a master tone control, yielding a versatile combination of multiple- and single-pickup tones.
A three-point T-Bird bridge provides a rock-solid anchor at the body end for optimum resonance and sustain, while classic Grover shamrock tuners offer easy and efficient tuning. A multi-ply black pickguard and black top-hat knobs with silver inserts complete the package.
Case and Coverage
The 2014 SG Special Bass comes protected in a vintage-brown Gibson hardshell case, includes a truss-rod wrench and owner’s manual, and is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson’s 24/7/365 Customer Service.
