The Gibson 2017 SG Faded T Electric Guitar features the classic double-cutaway "horns" body profile, which makes it instantly recognisable to guitarists the world over. Since its inception decades ago, the SG has been adopted by players across all musical genres, helping them to push the limits of their playing and break musical boundaries in the process. The 2017 Faded T channels the energy and comfortability the SG is regarded for, and adorns it with a laid bare finish.
Legendary Gibson build and SG style
As one might expect, the 2017 SG Faded T body is fashioned from mahogany and shaped to the ever so comfortable double-cutaway profile. The slender body depth makes it a joy to wield, and everyone from beginners to seasoned professionals adore how delightfully easy to body is to work with. The mahogany tonewoods provides a steady mid to low-end energy with a confident sustain. The faded finish has been treated to a protective layer of gloss.
A 'feel' like no other
The neck of the Gibson 2017 SG Faded T is built using maple, and shaped to the incredibly fast playing slim taper profile. The neck is paired with a 22 fret rosewood fingerboard, which is home to dot position inlays to guide your way in style. The neck and fingerboard combo plays like a dream, and combined with the lightweight body, you'd be hard pressed to find a more accommodating guitar. Whether you're emulating the slide virtuosity of Derek Trucks, laying down some Sabbath-style riffage, or noodling around with ideas that would make Zappa proud, this is the guitar to do it on.
The headstock proudly shows off the "Gibson" logo, whilst housing the vintage-style keystone tuners. Working closing with the tuning machines is the specially designed Tektoid nut, both working dutifully to uphold tuning integrity and string tension. Fitted to the body is the aluminium Tune-o-Matic bridge with steel thumbwheels, and aluminium stop bar tailpiece with steel posts - both contributing to the optimisation of intonation and sustain.
Chunky, funky tones
The solid mahogany body creates the smooth timbre, which the pickup partnership delivers with aplomb. Fitted in the neck position is the 490R, and in the bridge position is the 490T. Control comes in the form of independent volume and tone pots for each pickup, which allows you to sculpt and carve your output with precision. Not only that but in keeping with classic SG style, black Top Hat knobs have been fitted.
The Gibson 2017 SG Faded T Electric Guitar is supplied with a padded gig bag to protect your new pride and joy, as well as get you out on the road asap.
