The Gibson USA 2018 SG Faded Electric Guitar in Worn Bourbon finish offers vintage style alongside modern appointments in a cool played-in aesthetic. The legendary SG solidbody guitar features are present and correct, and each model is supplied with a Gibson softshell case and accessory kit.

Classic SG profile

The 2018 SG Faded adheres to the instantly recognisable double-cutaway "horns" body profile. The slimline body is crafted from mahogany, giving the SG a reassuringly weighty feel whilst generating a substantial midrange character. The sleek contours and bevelled edges combine to ensure that the SG retains its unique playability. The body has been finished in a played-in worn bourbon finish, which is protected by a slender but resilient coating of nitrocellulose lacquer.

Fast playing neck

Fitted to the body is supportive maple neck, which is shaped to the slimtaper profile that allows the hands to glide along with ease. Married to the neck is a cool rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 medium sized frets that have been cryogenically treated. The fingerboard is decorated with acrylic dot position inlays to provide an understated navigational aid. The balance between neck and body has been fine tuned to optimise playing comfort.

Classic humbucker pairing

The Gibson USA 2018 SG Faded is equipped with a pair of 490R and 490T pickups in the neck and bridge positions respectively. These humbuckers are modelled on the legendary PAF models, but have been given an undoubtedly more aggressive mid-range bite. Not only are they highly versatile with regard to the tones they produce - making them ideal for those who like to mix it up during performances -, but they offer everything from sublime cleans to gritty overdrive-style tones. Control comes in the form of independent volume and tone pots for each pickup, as well as a three-way toggle switch to select either individually or both simultaneously.

Gig-ready hardware

The headstock proudly shows off the "Gibson" logo, which resides between the ever-faithful vintage-style keystone tuners. Working closing with the tuning machines is the specially designed Tektoid nut, which work together to dutifully 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; this partnership contributes to the optimisation of intonation and sustain throughout the most rigorous or performances.

The Gibson USA 2018 SG Faded Electric Guitar in Worn Bourbon offers exceptional value at such an affordable price. Whether you're grabbing your first Gibson or looking for the ideal touring partner, the 2018 SG Faded is an absolute steal.
