The SG Special 2016 HP is the no-frills, hard rocking version of the SG Standard HP. While keeping true mother of pearl inlays as a visual signature of the HP series, the SG Special focuses like a laser on its remarkable high-performance features, including a new and exclusive fast-access heel, developed specifically for the Gibson USA High Performance lineup, to allow unprecedented access to the high notes - which combined with the new soloist neck width, provides the fastest and most comfortable SG neck you’ve ever played.

Titanium metal for the saddles and the adjustable zero-fret nut delivers a bright, crisp tone, while being virtually indestructible and ensuring total, personalized control over the action. The SG Special HP arrives protected by a high-performance gig bag, and is already set up by expert luthiers for immediate playability.
