Epiphone SG Special Electric Guitar

With two humbuckers and a maple neck, the Epiphone SG Special is an amazing value in an electric guitar.

The Epiphone SG Special is an incredible way to get real SG tone and styling without breaking the bank. In 1961, the original Les Paul shape was redesigned into a light, double-cutaway design. That design soon became known as the "SG" which is now -- along with the original -- Les Paul, the iconic rock guitar. Epiphone's G-400 and G-310 SG models have been best sellers in the guitar market for over 15 years featuring the carved SG-body shape and SG sound at a "workingman's" price. Now comes the SG Special, the most affordable SG on the market today with all the features that you've come to expect from Epiphone!

The Epiphone SG-Special is backed by our famous Epiphone Lifetime Limited Warranty featuring incomparable Gibson 24/7/360 Customer Service that guarantees the instrument against defects in materials or workmanship.

"Everything you could ask for in a guitar... especially the price"
Overall: 4.5 out of 5 stars

I'm already in the search for a new guitar, but this one will always be held dear to me. I'll never get rid of this guitar, even if everything gets rundown and broken...which isn't likely.

Sound
No matter where I plug this guitar in it sounds amazing. The clean tones are crisp and well-defined, and when you throw distortion into the mix, it's raw and crunchy. I play a lot of hard rock and metal (mostly Metallica), and this guitar really helps me achieve the kind of sound i'm looking for. I really couldn't ask for a better sounding guitar. And at the price, it's just incredible.

Features
When I got this guitar, everything was perfectly set up. I was able to plug it right in and play, and I was really happy with that. The action was set to perfection. One thing I did notice though, is that the screws in the bridge tend to rattle when you're playing. Mine was especially true for the B and high-E strings. But you really can't hear that through the amp so it's easy to work past. All I can say is I wish this had a whammy bar, but that's just personal preference.

Ease of Use
This guitar is so easy to use. Every time I pick it up I'm able to create new and exciting sequences. The harmonics are incredible, and actually quite easy to achieve. You can really do some cool stuff with this guitar.

Quality
This guitar is extrememly reliable and besides the aformentioned read more looseness of those bridge screws, you can totally depend on it to keep going and going through the years.

Value
You simply can't beat this price. I actually got mine cheaper than its price now. It's truly a price that can't be beat for this quality.

Manufacturer Support
Well, I've never needed support, but knowing Epiphone, it's probably good.

The Wow Factor
Everything about this guitar's appearance is beautiful. It really makes me feel confident when I'm playing in front of people, because I look down at this incredible piece of equipment I have in my hands, and think to myself, "Yeah, that's right, that's MY guitar."
