Product Description


Gibson 2016 SG Special HP - Satin Vintage Sunburst

The Gibson SG Special is guitar that has popped up a couple of times in recent years but for 2016 they have decided to change it up a bit and modern ideas with those of the early 70's models. With a set of classic mini humbucker style pickups and a beautiful set of finishes this is a guitar that will stand out in any collection.

The body has a slim all mahogany design with a thin mahogany neck topped with rosewood for the fretboard, similar to the classic 70's model. Normally this wood combination would make the guitar extremely heavy but due to just how thin the neck and body are on this guitar it feels lighter than a lot of other guitars available today.

It has a bit more of a bite when compared to a Les Paul with brighter overall sound but this has always been the classic SG sound. The sound that let amps rock harder and musicians have more freedom on stage.

By using a set of tribute mini humbuckers in this guitar you immediately get a more vintage inspired sound than a larger full sized humbucker. This is thanks to its shorter spacing and fewer winds this gives a tighter and more focused sound that was highly desirable in the 70's as people were looking for new sounds to get with their high gain amplifiers.

This brighter sound became the go to sound for a wide range of different experimental rock bands throughout the years as it was something new and different. Now it is favored by those in the vintage rock scene who want to make sure their tone is as crisp and clear as possible while running through some vintage rigs.

As part of the 2016 line this guitar has received a premium set up even before it has gone through our QC checks. This means that you can take this guitar out of the box on day one, go straight to your gig and rock up without any issues with the guitar at all.

No longer do you need to wait for a few days while you get your guitar. We all know that you want to get using a new guitar as soon as possible so Gibson have made sure you can do just that.

G-Force is an incredibly interesting technology that simply wants to save you time. We have all played gigs where your guitar goes out of tune halfway through. Just like we have all played gigs where we need to quickly change between tunings.

Gibson's G-Force system makes those previous tasks a second thought. Just set it up with the tunings you want. Select what you want using the unit on the back of the headstock and you are in tune within seconds.

And don't worry just because it has the ability to tune itself does not mean that you can't tune manually. The machine heads are actually very accurate 40:1 ratio tuners so you can get pitch perfect in no time at all.
