Gibson SG special 2016 HP Satin Vintage Sunburst overview from GAK
Introducing the Gibson SG Special 2016 HP, a beefed up rock brother of the SG. Experience high-performance features such as the exclusive fast-access heal, groundbreaking G-Force© tuners, accessible high-performance lineup and the widened soloist neck. Available in a range of beautiful finishes.
The SG Special HP's G-Force automatic tuner provides fast and accurate automatic tuning thanks to its optimised, lightweight servo motor and advanced controller, sensing string vibrations and automatically tuning your strings to the selected key. Save up to 36 custom preset tunings arranged in 6 banks for a large array of different sounds at the touch of a button, perfect for gigging and jamming alike.
Furthermore, the SG Special HP's extended width 'Soloist' neck with superb looking mother of pearl inlays makes it ideal for shredding and fast-paced solos. A zero-fret adjustable nut lets you optimise string height and nut angle to accommodate your playing style.
The SG Special HP's revised neck heel design gives you faster, easier access to the higher threat, perfect for harder rock playing and solos.
The SG Special HP's mini humbucker pickups give you a classic vintage sound as a result of its shorter spacing and fewer winds, producing a bright sound and crisp tone, catering for some rhythm and punchy leads.
The bridge features titanium saddles that are corrosive resistant, with a huge amount of strength yet low weight, it sounds superb.
The HP also comes equipped with Gibson's upgraded high-performance gig bag, that features more padding and additional zipped sections for storage, than the standard padded gig bag.
