Epiphone SG Muse in Purple Passion Metallic
A Fresh Take on the Iconic SG
The Epiphone SG Muse, from the new Inspired by Gibson Collection, is based on a rock icon that takes you back to the formative years of the legendary solidbody electric guitar in all its glory. The SG Muse features a fast, comfortable Custom "C" profile neck and bound Indian laurel fingerboard that provides an effortless playing experience, while its lightweight, sleekly contoured mahogany body delivers great sustain and no pain, even when you gig all night. And that fat, snarling tone — it’s to die for! High-output Alnico Classic Pro humbuckers with coil-splitting and polarity controls, plus a treble bleed circuit that maintains clarity when you dial back the volume, let you nail the perfect tone for any recording session or live gig. Available in a rainbow of vibrant metallic finishes, the Epiphone SG Muse will command attention whenever you take the stage.
Uncompromising power for tonal supremacy
When you really want to cook on a solo or deliver some thunderous power chords, you reach for a guitar that’s got a pair of humbuckers, right? Forget all those thin “out-of-phase” guitar sounds that session players overused in the 1980s and ’90s. That’s not for you. Your sound is all about the warmth, punch, and midrange complexity you can only get from a pair of humbuckers. The Epiphone SG Muse comes with a pair of Alnico Classic Pros for uncompromising power and tonal supremacy, whether you’re playing rhythm or digging into a solo.
Fast Custom "C" neck
The Epiphone SG Muse has a Custom "C" mahogany neck. Early Les Pauls had huge necks, but by 1960, the neck underwent several modifications until it became what’s known as the SlimTaper profile. The SG took it one step farther, making its neck among the fastest ever designed. The Custom "C" neck profile on the SG Muse combines the best of both worlds — still quite slim, but with a tad more girth to fill your hand in just the right way.
Something old, something new
It’s hard to believe that by 1961, Gibson decided to discontinue the original Les Paul guitar. Their motivation is unclear. Weak sales? The urge to try something new? In any case, the first SGs were actually called Les Pauls, but Les himself wasn’t in favor of that for a variety of reasons. So, in a bold move, this solid guitar was renamed SG, which stood for — wait for it — solid guitar. A few years later, Gibson started making the original Les Pauls again, but the SG proved so popular that they kept making them. There have been quite a few reissues and reimaginings in the Gibson and Epiphone catalogs over the years; today’s Epiphone SG Muse launches yet another chapter in the SG saga.
Your piece of rock history
With its iconic sculpted double-horned body, the SG is actually quite a cool looking instrument, and it delivers the classic humbucker sound for people who don’t particularly want or need a Les Paul. The SG is also a much lighter-weight instrument, yet it doesn’t cut corners. You still get quality mahogany construction and a pair of hot humbuckers that deliver all the warm, fat tone you could ever want. Own your piece of rock history at a price you can afford, with an Epiphone SG Muse from Sweetwater.
