The SG Special 2016 HP is the no-frills, hard rocking version of Gibson's SG Standard HP.

The SG Special 2016 HP from Gibson USA blends High Performance upgrades with classic SG style, unparalleled tone, and outstanding playability. Crafted using many of the same ingredients as its predecessors, the SG Special 2016 HP sports a solid mahogany body and a fast '70s-style SG neck profile. The maple neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that features a HP soloist width and a 12" radius for maximum playability while genuine mother-of-pearl block inlays provide an elegant aesthetic touch. The HP fast-access neck heel allows for uninhibited access to the higher frets.

The SG Special 2016 HP boasts a pair of Alnico-powered Tribute Mini-Humbuckers, which delivers all of those powerful tones that you've come to expect from an SG. The electronics feature the classic 2 Vol/2 Tone control layout while offering upgraded High Performance features including a sturdier noiseless 3-way toggle switch along with a gold-plated multi-contact jack for superior connection.

Gibson has added their revolutionary Next-Generation G-FORCE tuning system to this latest offering of the SG, delivering unprecedented automated tuning capabilities. You can now access any preset tuning in just one second, which means you can realistically change tunings in the middle of a song, if needed. What's more? The tuners are now automatically engaged to operate both electronically or individually by hand. Compared to earlier generations of the G-FORCE, this generation offers a smoother feel when tuning manually and quieter operation.

The SG Special 2016 HP comes complete with upgraded High Performance hardware, which includes a titanium adjustable zero-fret nut that allows you to tailor your action to preference and a Tune-O-Matic bridge with corrosion-resistant, lightweight titanium saddles for optimum strength, tone, and performance. Put it all together, and the SG Standard is a smoking slab of vintage mojo with a touch of cutting edge modern features. Includes High Performance gig bag.
