The SG Faded is the most affordable American Gibson SG in the 2018 range. It's got a stripped down approach but with a full/fat sound!
Body & Neck
The body is made of Mahogany (the classic SG formula) with a thin nitro finish that really lets the wood breathe and resonate. The neck is a Slim Taper that feels comfortable in the hand without being 'too slim'.
Pickups & Electronics
The pickups are both Gibson 490 which are high output pickups with plenty of bite and sustain. These sound great in a band mix, particularly with a bit of gain.
Here's what Gibson say about the SG Faded
The SG Faded brings legendary Gibson SG performance alive with a spirited, worn finish. Simple style comes from the faded gloss-nitro finish and classic dot inlays.
Slim Taper neck, mahogany body, solid rosewood fingerboard and classic PAF humbucking pickups deliver the signature sound and feel of the great SG of the past six decades.
