SG Special 2017In 1961 Les Paul radically changed the shape of his guitars. The lighter and flatter body became two sharp cutaways, the New "Les Paul" was later named SG (for solid Guitar) and became the signature feature for rock ´n´roll during the 60s. Even though the initial fatter Les Pauls returned years later, the SG was so popular that this unique design still holds its place on the big stages of Rock ´n´roll.
The SG Special has developed from the more affordable SG's little sister to an independent model which caters for the demands of modern playing.It is also the only instrument in the Gibson core program that has 24 frets.
All 2017 Gibson core models are optionally available as a high-performance version. In addition to the G-Force tuning system, these models are offered with Titanium nut and saddles. The necks are about 1.3 mm wider on the first fret, in addition they are provided with a zero fret. Finally a fast access neck facilitates easier playing on the top end frets and the toggle switch has been made extremely robust.
