OVERVIEW

Featuring Epiphone ceramic open-coil humbuckers.

Epiphone's Ltd. Ed. SG-Special-I is a great way for new players to get started on electric guitar at a price anyone can afford. The SG-Special-1 has the same classic “SG” tone, look and feel that’s gone virtually unchanged for over 50 years and players from all genres around the world recognize the “SG” as one of the best and most distinctive electric guitars ever made. But seasoned pros will also love the Ltd. Ed. SG Special-1 for its powerful ceramic open-coil humbuckers and smooth, easy-to-play mahogany SlimTaper neck. Plus, the Ltd. Ed. SG-Special-1 comes in three beautiful classic color finishes, Cherry, Ebony, and Pelham Blue.

The Ltd. Ed. SG Special-1 joins the fan-favorite Special-1 Series designed to bring superior sound and historic Epiphone-style to players just starting out, as well as to veterans who want a “workhorse” guitar to take on the road that’s lightweight but makes no compromise in electronics and hardware.
 
The “SG” profile is one of the most recognized in rock and roll. First introduced in the early 1960s, “SG” guitars have been the driving force behind heavy metal, hard rock, jam bands and British rock. And now with the Ltd. Ed. SG-Special-I, Epiphone fans around the world can enjoy owning and playing a real Epiphone “SG” at a great price. 
 
The Ltd. Ed. SG Special-1 has a mahogany body cut to the historic SG profile and a bolt-on mahogany neck featuring the same SlimTaper profile enjoyed by owners of iconic Epiphones like the Les Paul Standard and the Casino. The mahogany neck has a rosewood fingerboard with 22 easy-to-press medium-jumbo frets with pearloid dot inlays, just like vintage SGs. Even though new players might favor the Ltd. Ed. SG Special-1, this SG boasts many of the same specifications found on all SGs, including a 1.68” nut and 24.75” scale length.
 
This Ltd. Ed. SG Special-1 is powered by an Epiphone Ceramic 700TTM open-coil humbucker in the bridge or lead position and an Epiphone Ceramic 650RTM open-coil humbucker in the neck or rhythm position. Ceramic pickups have been a favorite of hard rock and metal players for decades. Ceramic magnets became more readily available in the late 60s and early 70s just as guitar players were incorporating overdrive and distortion into their sound. Ceramic pickups have a sharp, articulate and saturated tone that’s a perfect compliment to the SG Special-1’s mahogany body. Pickup selection is made via a standard 3-way pickup selector, and controls include Master Volume and Master Tone, both with classic Black “Speed” knobs. 
 
The Ltd. Ed. SG-Special I has Epiphone’s world-renown rock-solid hardware, including a heavy-duty 1/4” jack, easy-turning machine heads with a pro 15:1 tuning ratio, and a classic wrap-around bridge and tailpiece compensated for reliable intonation.
