Epiphone SG Special VE - Vintage Cherry
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.
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.
