The Gibson 2016 SG Special Faded Electric Guitar is instantly recognisable and respected by guitarists internationally thanks to its exceptional sound and ultra-comfortable feel. The Gibson 2016 SG Special Faded retains vintage features and completes the package with a 'worn' look.
The solid mahogany body of the Gibson 2016 SG Special Faded is slim and houses some of the key appointments of this remarkable guitar. As you’d expect from an SG, the sleek double-cutaway “horns” profile is a joy to wield, giving you comfortable access to the neck in its entirety. The bevelled edges create a comfortable resting position for your arm, which enables you to perform with total freedom.
A 'feel' like no other
The neck of the Gibson 2016 SG Special Faded is shaped to a rounded profile and crafted from maple. To compliment this and add further enhancement to the overall playing feel, the 2016 SG Special Faded has a beautiful rosewood fingerboard complete with 22 frets and pearl dot positional inlays. The headstock proudly shows off Gibson’s logo and houses the vintage style tuners and dark cream mounting rings.
Fitted to the Gibson 2016 SG Special Faded are the powerful and pure sounding 490R and 490T humbucking pickups, which translate the smooth warmth of the mahogany beautifully, whilst offering an articulate bite when given a push. Control comes in the form of 3-way pickup selector switch, and black top-hat knobs offering independent tone and volume control of each pickup. It couldn’t be easier to achieve the tone of your dreams, and whatever style of music you’re performing from clean country and jazz to dirty blues and heavy rock, this SG can do it all.
Another key appointment that adds to the splendour of the Gibson 2016 SG Special Faded includes a satin nickel tune-o-matic bridge that creates a seamless connection between the strings and body for unparalleled sustain. The headstock is home to vintage-style green tuning machines that uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision throughout the most demanding of performances.
