Featuring Humbuckers with Ceramic Magnets and Vintage Worn Finish

The Epiphone SG Special Satin E1 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 Satin E1!

Open Coil Humbuckers with Ceramic Magnets
The SG Special Satin E1 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 Satin E1 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.

My 6 year old’s fav movie is school of rock. This is a great option for him to learn guitar on while feeling he’s got a “school of rock” guitar. \n\nPeople comparing this to a 4k Gibson are just mental. It’s not even at the level of a 1k Epiphone but for a $300 guitar it’s an awesome option.

Fun to play, great tone, looks amazing, plays anything from chill blues to some pretty extreme Metal. It’s my first guitar , I got it because of Angus Young and Tony Iommi and that it looks awesome. I strongly recommend this guitar to beginners, intermediates and even Pros.

I personally really liked this guitar in terms of features, and even though it doesn't have all the features that a standard Gibson SG model would have, it's good quality for its price. It plays great and stays in tune really well, I would recommend for anyone starting guitar on a tight budget.

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.

Fantastic neck profile, slimmer than the LP VE but provides enough padding. The neck also has a nice satin feel which is a huge bonus in my books. The body looks like it will show some nice aging which to me is great. Tuners hold strong, nut is a little high (but you find this on MOST guitars), humbuckers sound great under distortion (garbage clean but this is to be expected), fretwork is "meh" but medium-high action shouldn't be an impediment to fast playing, frets weren't polished making them more difficult than need be to bend, fretboard felt sticky. Overall, this guitar seems like a perfect guitar both for the beginner and intermediate.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
