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.

Wow!!! Color me impressed!!!

Product Review

Ordered this on a whim after reading the reviews, and I am so glad that I did! Weight is very manageable, the finish is excellent (I got mine in the vintage sunburst and the pictures do NOT do it justice!), neck feels great with no need for any attention to the frets (usually one of the main things you’ll find on a cheap guitar), and I like that the top strap button is actually on the neck plate. Often with the cheap guitars, I immediately start looking for good deals on replacement pickups...not with this one! These pickups sound great, and I don’t feel a need to replace them. My only complaint is that the toggle switch doesn’t feel all that solid, which leads me to believe it’ll need fixed at some point in the future. And the payment plan makes it so much easier on the wallet (not that the $203 total for shipping, taxes, etc. is horribly hard on the wallet). You can very easily pay twice as much for only half of the guitar that this is. You knocked this one out of the park, Epiphone

Worth the money!

Product Review

For a bolt on neck SG epiphone I like the lightweight and punchy pickups. Might be less than the neckthrough model but it plays great although it was not in intonation, slightly sharp on the G E A and the frettboard is fairly flat, more than my last Dot 335. I have the cherry sunburst and love the color and finish

Great Product, Great Service

Product Review

Guitar came today and it is everything I hoped for. Good action, good neck and beautiful finish. Really, a great deal. Very happy with the purchase. Strings are a little sticky for some reason, but I plan to change them anyway. I'm retired and don't have a lot of cash. Payment plan allowed me to get this new guitar after I gave my old one to my nephew. Only problem is I don't know where to send the payments. The company should send an email with instructions. But I will call them about this.

Outstanding guitar! No need to spend a dollar more for a guitar.

Product Review

This is an outstanding guitar. Tonal quality, character and definition of single-coil pickups with humbucker drive and silence. Signal cleans up when back off the volume. Very easy and comfortable to play. no setup or fretwork needed. Play-ability and intonation perfect out of the box. My ex-wife has my Gibson Les Pauls, American Strats and Teles. This $179 guitar easily competes with them in every aspect.
