What we say: Epiphone’s SG Special VE provides a hard-rocking introduction to the world of electric guitars. Based on the famous Gibson SG, this extremely affordable electric guitar channels the look sad attitude of that most famous of guitars, for those just getting started on the road to guitar excellence.
The Epiphone SG Special VE is a full-sized electric made from Poplar with a veneer of Mahogany to effect the look of a traditional SG. The bolted-on neck has the correct 24.75” scale length and has a very easy to play D-shaped profile.
Hot Rock sounds spring forth form the two ceramic-magnet humbucking pickups. This guitar is designed to give you an authentic, high output Rock sound and in this it excels! A single volume knob, single tone knob and a three way pickup selector switch give you all the control you need to coax a variety of tones.
We are impressed by the easy playability, the full-throated sound and the timelessly iconic look: this is a great choice for the beginner or casual guitarist. Available in a variety of finishes, this particular guitar is available here in Walnut.
