Here is a comparison from Gibson Archive, comparing the Standard and the Special.
All three of these SGs share time-tested Gibson hardware, including the versatile and tone-enhancing combination of a Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop bar tailpiece, and green tulip-button tuners. And, although the SG Standard has always been the humbucker-loaded option in the range, today’s SG Special has evolved from the P-90s it carried in the ’60s to also include humbuckers like the Standard. Both feature pickups from the popular Modern Classic range, units that are inspired by the vintage-voiced tone of the 57 Classics, but updated for contemporary rock. The SG Special carries a 490R in the neck position and a 490T in the bridge, a set made with alnico II magnets and calibrated for a balanced output. The SG Standard also carries the 490R in the neck, but has a hotter 498T in the bridge position, a pickup made with an alnico V magnet and modified coil windings for a little more punch. Both the SG Special and SG Standard also route their pickup selection through individual volume and tone controls and a three-way switch.
Whichever flavor suits your needs, the SG Special and SG Standard are both light yet powerful, radical yet nuanced, and primed to offer unparalleled performance at a price that’s now better than ever.
The neck is modeled after the 1959 Les Paul Shape.
