Product Description


Gibson 2016 SG Faded HP - Worn Brown

Gibson have been developing and building high caliber guitars for over six decades, with the original Gibson SG being released in 1961. The 2016 SG Special Faded model is a high performance instrument packed with premium features that gives the traditional SG Faded a brand new twist. Since its initial creation, the Gibson SG guitar has been an instrument of choice for many iconic guitarists, from Angus Young of AC/DC to Eric Clapton.

Like many Gibson electric guitars, they have employed a crucial blend of a maple body and a mahogany neck to construct this SG Special Faded HP model. The body is carved from solid maple and given a slim chassis with the traditional, asymmetrical double-cutaway. The tonewood in the body of the 2016 SG Special Faded essentially gives this guitar that thick, raw vintage tone that is expected of the SG.

The 2016 SG Faded High Performance still has the slim neck profile and is constructed using a single piece of mahogany. The soloist neck width has a slightly larger scope than previous models, but is potentially the best neck yet for guitarists who like ripping out exquisite solos. To make solos even easier, the neck is given a worn satin finish and has a brand new neck heel which promotes rapid note transition.

Married to the neck is a thicker, rounded 22-fret rosewood fingerboard which has a sumptuous playing feel. The frets are adorned with white dot inlays to guide you along the frets with confidence.

At the top of the neck is an adjustable nut angle whereby you can adjust your string height to suit your style ensuring that you feel ultimately comfortable and can play on for hours.

That sweet, raw and blistering sound output we know from the SG Special is replicated in this 2016 SG Faded High Performance model as Gibson have fitted it with two PAF (patent applied for) humbucker pickups, the 490R and 498T, both powered by Alnico II magnets. The 490R (neck) and 498T (bridge) pickups allow you to generate anything from rich, warm rhythm tones to fiery leads. The machine wound coils produce a big bite and create a perfect hard rock sound.

Four control knobs sit to the lower bout of the guitar for: lead volume, lead tone, rhythm volume and rhythm tone, and a three-way pickup switch allows you to adjust your sound to suit your playing needs.
