I don't see any difference in them, other than uncovered pickups, dot inlays, no neck binding, and a little bit of a difference on the headstock. I know that this could be it, but why is it $300 cheaper on the gibson website?

Also, did you know that an SG standard is about $800 cheaper on Musicians Friend?

oh you meant the sg std and the special?

well here is my 2 cents.

i feel the special is a sg standard on a budget, same like the les paul studio of the les paul series. it might look the same but it might not sound or feel the same. they use lower grade of wood for the special series and on many occasions i seen series of flaws cosmetically. to this day i still couldn't find one sg special i liked.

Slightly lower quality stuff, lower quality wood and bridge, etc.

This. I fiddled with both a Special and a Standard. The Special felt like garbage. Horrible action (just needs a set up) and for some reason it just sounded horrible. The only thing on the head stock was "Gibson". No fancy symbol in the center, and the truss rod cover is blank. (On some) It's a watered down version of the goody.

Then you pickup the Standard and then its like, "Okay, not we're talking." Excellent guitar, bright sound, versitile and everything but not much of a fan of its stock neck pup.
