Expert Review

The Gibson SG kicked in the door and went straight to business when it debuted in 1961, replacing the single-cutaway Les Paul. The axe became a prominent factor in the music of the 1960s from that point on, making musical history in the hands of players like Eric Clapton, Pete Townshend, and Robby Krieger. Years later, the SG Special pays tribute to the legendary axe while also making some cool improvements on the original design.

A slim profile neck and 24-fret rosewood fingerboard ensure you’ll be ripping through notes with ease, The SG has your back with vintage-style tuners and a tune-o-matic bridge to keep you in tune and heighten your performance with a smooth sustain. High-output 490R and 490T humbucking pickups replace the original SG’s single-coils, but only a stickler will complain with the type of biting versatility this upgrade provides. While the SG body is built from solid mahogany for a deep and resonant tone, it’s still a lightweight guitar which won’t stress the shoulders as you spend hours rocking out on your axe.Rating: 4.75/5
