Featuring Humbuckers with Ceramic Magnets and Vintage Worn Finish
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 and available in beautiful Vintage Worn finish.
Classic SG Styling
Lightweight yet powerful, the SG became a hard rock classic in the 1960s. 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”, a 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.
Open Coil Humbuckers with Ceramic Magnets
The SG-Special VE is powered by two Epiphone open-coil humbuckers with ceramic magnets. 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. 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.
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 ¼” output jack, and premium die-cast 14:1 ratio machine heads for fast and accurate tuning. An optional hard case is also available.
