Featuring Humbuckers with Ceramic Magnets and Vintage Worn Finish

The new Epiphone SG-Special VE is a great way for players to discover a rock classic or obtain a stage-ready touring standby at a price anyone can afford. Featuring Epiphone open-coil humbuckers with Ceramic Magnets and available in five beautiful Vintage Worn finishes including Cherry, Ebony, Heritage Cherry Sunburst, Vintage Sunburst, and Walnut, this is the SG Special VC!

Open Coil Humbuckers with Ceramic Magnets
The SG-Special VE is powered by two Epiphone open-coil humbuckers with ceramic magnets. Owners of vintage SGs and Les Pauls often remove their pickup covers for a better bass response and magnetic pull. Ceramic pickups have a higher output than vintage Alnico magnet pickups and are designed to provide a tight low-end response with both a smooth mid-range and a slightly more pronounced top end tone. Ceramic magnets have been a favorite of metal and hard rock guitarists for decades. The SG-Special VE has a 650R in the rhythm position and a slightly hotter 700T in the lead position. Controls include a Master Volume and Master Tone with traditional black Speed knobs and a 3-way pickup selector.

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreVancouver, British Columbia
I mainly got this guitar because I liked the matte black look and it is very sleek looking. It sounds good for the price, I may upgrade the pickups at some point. Its a little easy to scratch I got a couple minor nicks on the side from it accidentally hitting my belt so be very careful with it. But its very minor are really not noticeable especially from the front. Its a fun guitar to play and it really looks the part. I feel like a badass whenever I get to pick it up and start shredding. I'd recommend it especially for the price if you're looking for something to get into playing guitar thats more of the mid low end for a starting guitar.
