Product Description

The new Epiphone SG-Special VE is a great way for new players to discover a rock classic at a price anyone can afford. Featuring Epiphone open-coil humbuckers with Ceramic Magnets for a powerful voice which retains great clarity.

Classic SG Styling
When the ‘SG’ double cutaway electric guitar was first released, it was intended to take the place of the Les Paul which was discontinued throughout most of the 60s. Lightweight yet powerful, the SG became a hard rock classic all its own and was embraced by a wide range of players including Eric Clapton, the Allman Brothers, Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath, and Pete Townshend of The Who. The new SG-Special VE has the same iconic design with a Poplar body with a Mahogany veneer and a black pickguard.

The bolt-on Mahogany neck has a 1960's SlimTaper D profile, a standard SG scale length of 24.75 inches, a Rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot inlays, and 22 medium jumbo frets. The Clipped Ear style headstock has a 60s era Epiphone logo in silver and a ‘2017’ Edition logo on the back of headstock. The SG-Special VE is available in Cherry, Ebony, Heritage Cherry Sunburst, Vintage Sunburst, and Walnut Vintage Worn finishes.

Open Coil Humbuckers with Ceramic Magnets
The SG-Special VE is powered by two Epiphone open-coil humbuckers with ceramic magnets. Owners of vintage SGs and Les Pauls often remove their pickup covers for a better bass response and magnetic pull. Ceramic pickups have a higher output than vintage Alnico magnet pickups and are designed to provide a tight low-end response with both a smooth mid-range and a slightly more pronounced top end tone. Ceramic magnets have been a favorite of metal and hard rock guitarists for decades. The SG-Special VE has a 650R in the rhythm position and a slightly hotter 700T in the lead position. Controls include a Master Volume and Master Tone with traditional black Speed knobs and a 3-way pickup selector.

Rock Solid Epiphone Hardware
The new SG-Special VE features Epiphone-designed rock solid hardware including the classic SG style LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, a non-rotating 1/4 inch output jack, and premium die-cast 14:1 ratio machine heads for fast and accurate tuning. An optional hard case is also available.

Lifetime Guarantee
Like all Epiphones, the Epiphone SG-Special VE comes with a Limited Lifetime Guarantee and Gibson’s world famous 365/24/7 Customer Service. There’s never been a more affordable way to discover the legendary SG guitar.

Pleasantly surprised!!
What is your opinion of this product?
Just delivered today and after playing it for an hour I am pleasantly surprised. Having owned many Epiphones and Gibson’s over the years I wasn’t expecting much for the price. No rough frets, no problems with switches and knobs, no fret buzz and nice aggressive pickups. Only needed some slight tuning out of the box and away we went. Played for over an hour and didn’t have to retune it once.

Good value. Good sound
What is your opinion of this product?
Over all good sound. Good construction. It came fully set up from AMS My only concern were the tuners. they hold tune but they feel wonky and you will spend a good deal of time turning the key with no effect then suddenly you are way past the plsace you want to be.
