An iconic guitar with vintage appointments and Alnico P90 pickups.
The Epiphone Limited Edition 50th Anniversary '1961' SG Special Outfit faithfully turns back the clock and gives you an affordable iconic instrument that sounds and plays like you've stepped back in time.
Like the original, The Epiphone Limited Edition 50th Anniversary '1961' SG Special Outfit features a mahogany body and mahogany neck with a SlimTaper 1960s 'D' profile. And like vintage SGs, the Epiphone '1961' SG Special Outfit has a hand-set 24.75-inch scale neck with a 12-inch radius, a rosewood fingerboard, a 1.68-inch nut width for tuning stability during bends, Wilkinson vintage 14:1 ivory button machine heads, and a classic '60s-era Epiphone logo on the headstock.
No detail of the Epiphone '1961' SG Special Outfit has been missed. The Alnico P-90R Soapbar neck pickup and the Alnico P-90T Soapbar bridge pickup are perfect for players who want elements of both single and double coil sounds in one pickup.
The mix of mahogany and Alnico P90s gives the Epiphone '1961' SG Special Outfit a unique sound that is both modern and classic. The vintage style black controls with metal inserts include neck volume and tone and bridge volume and tone, allowing for an infinite variety of tone combinations.
The all metal three-way toggle switch is designed by Epiphone, and the wrap-around 'Lightning Bar' combination stopbar adjustable bridge provides tuning and intonation stability.
