Crafting a Classic
The body of the SG-Special VE has been crafted from Poplar and covered with a Mahogany veneer for a great look.
As with all genuine SG guitars, it is cut to the iconic double cutaway profile that provides enhanced reach of the higher frets – perfect for solos.
Attached to the body via sturdy bolt-on construction is an Okoume neck with a 1960’s SlimTaper D profile, giving you a fast and comfortable playing experience. Atop the neck, you’ll find traditional Pearloid “Dot” inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets.
Ceramic Magnet Humbuckers
Giving the SG-Special VE its powerful voice is a set of humbuckers featuring Ceramic-8 magnets.
Many owners of vintage SGs and Les Pauls like to remove the pickup covers to get better bass response and magnetic pull from the pickups, so the SG-Special VE comes with open-coil humbuckers.
Ceramic magnets are used, instead of Alnico magnets, to get higher output and they are designed to produce pronounced high end tone, smooth mid-range and tight low-end.
In the neck position, you’ll find a warm sounding 650R pickup while the bridge position holds a slightly hotter 700T.
A three-way pickup selector switch allows you to choose between either pickup or a combination of the two while Master Volume and Master Tone controls, using black “Speed” knobs, allow for quick and easy dialling in of your favourite tones.
Quality, All-Metal Hardware
To ensure rock solid performance, the SG-Special VE features all-metal hardware.
On the body of the guitar, you’ll the legendary Locktone Tune-O-Matic Bridge and Stopbar tailpiece allowing for quick set ups and perfect intonation.
Up on the headstock, you’ll find Premium Covered tuning machines offering a 14:1 ratio to give you extremely precise tuning.
