The Gibson SG Special High Performance somehow keeps costs down while adding more features than ever before to an instrument of this price. Making its way over from the previous Les Paul Supreme models is the Zero Fret adjustable nut which greatly improves tuning, intonation and stability. Don't worry about tuning this guitar, ever. Gibson have included robot tuners to the mix which only raises the bar for its competition.
High performance version of the Gibson SG Special T with robot tuners.
Vintage looks, ultra-modern performance. Based on the same vintage architecture as its more traditional counterpart, the SG Special 2017 HP starts from classic Gibson origins and dives straight into our latest innovations.
The SG Special 2017 HP combines what Gibson does best: Tradition and Innovation, giving you the best of both worlds in one superb looking instrument with supercharged premium features such as a slim-taper neck with soloist's width and 24 polished frets, a fast-access neck heel, 490R and 498T humbuckers, titanium bridge saddles and steel studs, G-Force auto-tuning system, upgraded electronics and wiring, and more. Delivered in a HP padded gigbag, accompanied by a strap and a polishing cloth.
