The Epiphone SG-Special E1 Electric Guitar is a great way for players to discover a rock classic at a price anyone can afford. Featuring Epiphone open-coil humbuckers with Ceramic Magnets and available in five beautiful Vintage Worn finishes.

Classic SG Styling
When the "SG" double cutaway electric guitar was first released, it was intended to take the place of the Les Paul which was discontinued throughout most of the 60s. Lightweight yet powerful, the SG became a hard rock classic all its own and was embraced by a wide range of players including Eric Clapton, the Allman Brothers, Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath, and Pete Townshend of The Who. The 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 granadillo 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. The SG-Special VE is available in Cherry, Ebony, Heritage Cherry Sunburst, Vintage Sunburst, and Walnut Vintage Worn finishes.

Open Coil Humbuckers with Ceramic Magnets
The SG-Special VE is powered by two Epiphone open-coil humbuckers with ceramic magnets. Owners of vintage SGs and Les Pauls often remove their pickup covers for a better bass response and magnetic pull. 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. Ceramic magnets have been a favorite of metal and hard rock guitarists for decades. 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.

Rock Solid Epiphone Hardware
The SG-Special E1 features Epiphone-designed rock solid hardware including the classic SG style LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, a non-rotating 1/4" output jack, and premium die-cast 14:1 ratio machine heads for fast and accurate tuning. An optional hard case is also available.

    New Products
    Brand-new products are shipped from the vendor's factory to our warehouses, then from the warehouse to you – there's no detour through a retail store where the boxes are opened, and the products put on display and sold as leftovers. When you shop online, make sure you're comparing new, factory-fresh gear from authorized US dealers like zZounds.

    Clearance Gear: Special Opportunities to Save Big!
    When It's Not New, We Tell You

This inventory includes all parts, components, manuals (hard copy or downloadable) and the full factory warranty*. It has been tested to manufacturer's specifications and is guaranteed to work perfectly. It may be less attractive than Warehouse Resealed inventory, but it's priced even lower!

This inventory includes all parts, components, manuals (hard copy or downloadable) and the full factory warranty*.

This inventory includes all parts, components, manuals (hard copy or downloadable) and the full factory warranty*.
