The Epiphone SG Special Satin E1 Electric Guitar Cherry is a solid poplar-bodied ax that provides effortless playability and tone tailored for high-gain styles. Its double-cutaway SG profile offers unfettered access to 24 jumbo frets along an okoume neck, while open-coil humbuckers serve up thick, distorted tones. A hardtail bridge keeps tuning stable during heavy picking passages. Available in vintage-worn cherry or ebony finishes with chrome hardware, the SG Special Satin E1 brings classic rock attitude to the stage.

High-Output Humbuckers Drive Overdriven Tones

The SG Special Satin E1 features a pair of Epiphone open-coil humbucking pickups that provide hot, crunchy tones perfect for hard rock and metal. The bridge pickup delivers aggressive lead tones with strong upper mids, while the neck pickup offers fuller, darker sounds for rhythm playing. Simply flip the 3-way selector switch to access each pickup individually or combine them for a bold, harmonically rich sound.

Double-Cutaway Body Provides Unfettered Fretboard Access

The SG Special Satin E1's iconic double-cutaway poplar body enables easy access to all 24 jumbo frets along its okoume neck. This construction, along with the guitar's 24.75" scale length, allows for fast, nimble playing across the fretboard. A 12" fingerboard radius and 1.68" nut width also facilitate speedy fretting hand work. Overall, the SG Special Satin E1's streamlined shape and smooth playability make it ideal for shredding leads and technical riffing.

Vintage-Inspired Style with Modern Playability

While the SG Special Satin E1 nods to the iconic styling of 1960s rock guitars, Epiphone has updated it with a satin finish and contemporary features for today's players. Its vintage worn cherry and ebony finishes provide a pre-worn look, while the okoume neck, 12" fingerboard radius, and jumbo frets offer a fast, comfortable playing feel. Quality chrome hardware, including a Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop tailpiece, also provides rock-solid tuning stability and sustain. Overall, the SG Special Satin E1 blends vintage vibe with modern performance.
