The SG Muse guitar features a classic SG Mahogany body with Alnico Classic PRO humbuckers with coil-splitting via push/pull volume knobs and phase switch via one push/pull tone knob. The beautiful new SG Muse Collection features a classic SG profile with a Mahogany body powered by high output Alnico Classic PRO humbuckers with coil-splitting and phase controls plus a treble bleed circuit to maintain clarity at lower volumes.
New Look, Classic Sound:
The new SG Muse Collection features the historic SG profile with a Mahogany body that’s been a Gibson Brands classic since 1961. The Mahogany neck is hand-set and glued into the body and features a Custom “C” profile with an Indian Laurel fingerboard with pearloid trapezoid inlays, a 24.75” scale, medium jumbo frets, and a narrow 1.63” Graphtech nut.
Alnico Classic PRO Humbuckers:
The SG Muse Collection is powered by Epiphone Alnico Classic PRO humbuckers which feature Alnico-V magnets for a higher output than traditional humbuckers. Alnico Classic PROs also feature 18% Nickel Silver unit bases and covers, the same alloy used by Gibson at the Kalamazoo factory when the humbucker was first invented. The use of Nickel Silver reduces the occurrence of eddy currents due to low conductivity and provides a more transparent and crisp output. Controls include a standard 3-way toggle switch and standard Les Paul volume and tone for each pickup with clear speed knobs with white numbers. Both pickups also offer a push-pull split-coil feature activated at each volume control to turn the humbucker into a single-coil pickup for even more tonal options as well as a in/out phase switch on the neck’s tone control. The volume pots also now feature a standard treble bleed circuit to maintain clarity at lower volume.
Rock Solid Epiphone Hardware:
Like all great SGs, the Muse Collection features rock solid hardware including Epiphone light-weight 3+3 tuning machines and Epiphone’s standard LockTone bridge and Stopbar tailpiece. A hard case or EpiLite case is available form Authorized Epiphone Dealers.
All Epiphone instruments come with a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson’s 365/24/7 Customer Service.
