The Epiphone SG Limited Edition 50th Anniversary "1961" SG Special Outfit faithfully turns back the clock to gives you an affordable iconic instrument that sounds and plays like you’ve just stepped back in time. The original SG not only rivaled guitars of its own era for sonic variety, but also proved to be a sign of things to come. Hard rock, metal, and scores of rockers embraced the original SG and today you’ll find an SG in every great guitar player's arsenal. The Epiphone SG Limited Edition 50th Anniversary "1961" SG Special Outfit gives you classic styling and vintage sound with our famous Epiphone production quality that today’s guitar collectors seldom find in vintage instruments. The SG Story: When the SG or “Solid Guitar” was introduced in 1961 as a replacement for the Les Paul, it was called the “fretless wonder” for its low frets and fast action. The twin horn cutaway design was like nothing on the market and its light but balanced weight and P-90 pickups made it the perfect guitar for stage and studio. Not only was it lighter than a Les Paul but the SG’s P-90 pickups had more tone and clarity than other single coil pickups yet still had all the bite and overtones of a humbucker. Some of the SG’s biggest fans include The Who’s Pete Townshend, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, Paul Weller, AC/DC’s Angus Young, Frank Zappa, and Derek Trucks of the Allman Brothers Band. This Epiphone SG Special is in great condition. Minimal wear on the guitar. A very small ding on the back that would not show in photos. This guitar comes professionally setup, adjusted and intonated with a fresh set of strings.
