No remarks or comments on this guitar. It really is in showroom condition.
Yes, it has been played once or twice, it has been ‘handled’, you will detect some minuscule signs of use somewhere, and if you get in a bright light and get up close you can see those minute polishing swirls, but probably a lot less than so called ‘new’ guitars sitting on the wall in a popular high street chain store.
Playability – like all guitars here at Guitar Mania this guitar has been set up by our legendary Jon our in-house tech and we can confirm that the action and intonation has been checked and adjusted and has brand new 10-46 gauge strings. It currently has a pretty low action which is how we like it.
HARD CASE – this guitar comes with the original brown shaped Gibson hard case in excellent condition.
Fast, light, and comfortable
The SG literally stands for Solid Guitar – and that’s exactly what you get. It strays away from the weight of its predecessor the Les Paul, and with its thin taper neck, it’s a joy to fly around the fretboard. Because your hands always feel right, wherever they along the scale. With the bonus of no back strain thanks to a lightweight design, it’s perfect for throwing around the stage without the fatigue of normal guitars – feel a new sense of freedom in your playing.
The SG’s prestige is spread throughout rock. It’s influenced so many guitarists, used by bands from The Smiths to Fugazi to Wolfmother – and beyond. It showed the world immense versatility from a seemingly simple instrument, and has always had a unique sound that musicians gravitate towards. The SG Special was (and still is) seen in the hands of the greats from music history, including Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath), Pete Townshend (The Who), and Robby Krieger (The Doors). Put it in your own hands and understand why it is so revered, and with its modern enhancements, experience what the SG Special has become.
The epitome of P-90 tone
Created in the ’50s and never bested, the P-90 and its unique sound and quality have persisted through the ages, becoming a staple with rock and punk bands. The dog-ear P-90s have a unique bark with rich upper-mid harmonics that will permeate any mix. Combined with the unique attack from the wraparound bridge, it’s no wonder why they’re a mainstay with guitarists.
This Gibson SG Special features two P-90s and a three-way toggle switch, which opens-up a plethora of voicings. From the fast attack of the bridge pickup mixed with the natural warmth that is exemplified from a P-90 in the neck, the SG Special won’t have trouble accommodating your sound
A finish that will always develop. The nitrocellulose lacquer on the SG Special ages with you. The more you play, the lacquer will give your SG a beautiful, worn-in look. Being able to see the history of your own experiences worn into the body is a gratifying experience. And although it’s not the most important element of the guitar, it does make it uniquely personal to you.
