After Gibson was successful with the SG model in the early 60s, they started to extend the SG product range with new models. The SG Special replaced the previously successful Les Paul Special and was offered as a P-90 alternative to the classic humbucker-equipped SG.
Here is an authentic reissue of a 1963 SG Special from the Gibson Custom Shop. Equipped with all the fine ingredients that guarantee an excellent sound: mahogany body, fingerboard made of Indian rosewood, two excellent Gibson Custom Soap Bar P-90 pickups and "paper-in-oil" capacitors. These pickups guarantee a unique tone! Sometimes rough, aggressive and angry sounding, but also brilliant and harmonic in clean mode. "Best of both worlds" so to say. Just perfect for Blues and Rock! No wonder that WHO grandmaster Pete Townsend played for a long time exactly with such an SG equipped with P-90 pickups. As a special feature, this Custom Shop 1963 SG Special was equipped with a "Lightning Bar Wraparound Tailpiece" bridge, which ensures a direct and dynamic sound.
