[NAMM] Epiphone 50th Anniversary '1961' SG Special
Epiphone presents the Limited Edition 50th Anniversary '1961' SG Special Outfit model.
The Epiphone Limited Edition 50th Anniversary '1961' SG Special Outfit features a mahogany body and mahogany neck with a SlimTaper 1960s 'D' profile. 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, Wilkinson vintage 14:1 ivory button machine heads, and a classic '60s-era Epiphone logo on the headstock.
The Alnico P-90R Soapbar neck pickup and the Alnico P-90T Soapbar bridge pickup are designed 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 special sound that is both modern and classic, according to the company. The vintage style black controls with metal inserts include neck volume and tone and bridge volume and tone, allowing for a 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 is designed to help with tuning and intonation stability. The Epiphone '1961' SG Special Outfit is available in classic alpine white, cherry, ebony, and classic '50s style TV yellow.
