Originally introduced in the early '60s as a replacement for the Les Paul, the lightweight, yet powerful double-horned SG ("Solid Guitar") became an instant classic. Found in the hands of some of the greatest names in rock including Eric Clapton, Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi, The Who's Pete Townshend, the Allman Brothers, and more, the SG has proved to be a true rock icon.

Today, the SG Special VE gives you that legendary SG style, tone, and quality at an affordable price, making it equally suited for beginners and seasoned pros alike! Featuring that instantly-recognizable double-cutaway design, the poplar body sports a mahogany veneer and a classic black pickguard. For fast and easy to play, the bolt-on mahogany neck is shaped into a traditional-style 1960 SlimTaper "D" profile, and features a classic 24.75" scale length and a 22-fret fingerboard with pearloid dot inlays. The neck is also topped with a "Clipped Ear" headstock that showcases a vintage-inspired silver Epiphone logo on the front and a "2017 Edition" logo on the back.

Designed for rock, the SG Special VE comes loaded up with high-output Epiphone 650R and 700T open-coil ceramic humbuckers to deliver tighter lows, smoother mids, and more pronounced trebles than vintage-style Alnico humbuckers. The no-nonsense 2-knob control layout includes a Master Volume and Master Tone control that allows for easy tone shaping. Nickel hardware include a set of premium covered 14:1 ratio tuning machines, a quality LockTone Tune-o-Matic bridge, and a stopbar tailpiece. The SG Special VE comes available in a selection of Vintage Worn finishes. Case not included.

I would buy this product again. Great service.


This is my first guitar ever. I decided that being locked in for COVID-19 that I needed a new hobby. This guitar was priced great and shipped fast. I really enjoy playing it. Whenever I need another guitar or any accessories, Sam Ash will be my first choice. Thank you for my new hobby.



Happy Son Happy Dad


The tone,the look and the happiness that it brought to my oldest son for his offical electric guitar. Priceless



Great guitar once it's finished


Went ahead and bought this even though the tuners were junk. Replaced them with the Gotoh Vintage-style Oval 15:1's. The guitar weight is also all over the place depending on which one you pick up. Mine came in at 5.5 lbs which was about what I was looking for. Others came in between 6-7.8 lbs.(I brought my own accurate digital fish scale). It also needed significant setup as most off the rack guitars do. And lastly I replaced the strings with D'Addario EXL 9's. Much better response than the stock 10's, and easier on older fingers. Can't comment on durability after only a few days, but I really like it so far. Love the solid satin black and simple controls.




Beautiful finish and good sound


I love this guitar. Can't take my eyes off this one. Very sleek finish.

I can not put this down!!!


I was Leary at first because the STRINGS have a coating on them. I love everything about this guitar. I love the way the neck feels. It is a beautiful guitar! It stays in tune better than more expensive guitars I will not name.
