The original Gibson SG Standard was already a pretty simple guitar. When you start stripping it back however you realise that a real raw and powerful sound sits underneath
Same Classic Build
Even though this model is such great value for money Gibson have still not cut back any costs on the way this guitar is made. It still features the same thin mahogany body and neck as well as the rosewood fretboard that has been on this guitar since 1961. These woods help keep this guitar sounding thick and full even though the body is much thinner than an equivalent Les Paul.
Vintage Style Pickups
While a lot of Gibson's pickups are hotter versions of the pickups from years ago these are actually much closer to the original. The tone and output level are very much similar to what you would have found on an early 60's SG.
Here's what Gibson say about the SG Special
The SG Special is the supercharged counterpart of the traditional SG. It boasts an extraordinary set of premium, high-performance features while maintaining the rugged looks that are the Faded series' signature.
