Gibson - SG Special - Faded Pelham Blue

 

Gibson’s SG Special brings back a classic. Immortalized by Santana at Woodstock and smashed onstage by Townshend, the Gibson SG Special is a rock icon. Gibson’s Nashville-made SG Special takes you back to the formative years of the legendary solidbody electric guitar: small pickguard, P-90 pickups, vintage nitro finish, and all. This SG’s fast, comfortable SlimTaper neck, bound rosewood fingerboard, and Plek’d frets make for action that’s almost nonexistent. The Gibson SG Special’s lightweight, sleekly contoured mahogany body delivers great sustain and no pain, even if you gig all night. And the vintage nitro finish looks and feels stupendous while enhancing the tone of this legendary rock machine. Own your piece of rock history: the Gibson SG Special.

We have many fiercely loyal P-90 fans here at Sweetwater. These guitarists know that the P-90 offers a unique tonal palette that is distinct from — and complements — humbuckers and traditional single-coils. Gibson’s first successful single-coil pickup, the P-90 can be heard on countless classic recordings. With its biting treble and high output, the P-90 cleans up nicely when you roll back your guitar’s volume pot. It’s an amazingly versatile pickup with its own brand of grit — a bit brighter, leaner, and less refined than a humbucker and almost as hot. Hit your amp hard, and the P-90 really wails. Plugged into a proper high-gain tube amp, you can elicit grind, sizzle, and bark that would be impossible with humbuckers — or with other single-coils, for that matter. To hear P-90s brilliantly deployed in historical context, check out Santana’s fiery Woodstock performance, the Who’s masterful Live at Leeds album, or any number of classic Beatles tunes.

Gibson gave the SG Special a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes — standard back in the day — are significantly thinner than today’s polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to “breathe.” Nitro finishes not only look amazing, but they also enhance the instrument’s tonal qualities. The Gibson SG Special has the look and feel of a lovingly cared-for classic — one that will only improve with age.
