The Gibson Faded SG Special is an amazingly affordable American made Gibson SG!
Built with the same features as some of the most sought-after Gibson's ever created, The Faded Cherry and Faded Brown SGs gives this classic model SG the look of a well-worn, well-loved instrument. Features include a mahogany body, a rounded mahogany neck, a rosewood fingerboard, and chrome hardware.
Nothing can match the well-played look and feel of a favorite SG from the 1960s or 70s except today’s SG Special Faded. The Worn finish make these guitars feel like old friends, while humbucking pickups bring the SG Special to a level of performance the originals never had.
The Faded SG Special includes a deluxe padded gigbag.
Gibson 490R and 490T Humbuckers
These Modern Classic pickups feature tonal characteristics similar to the 57 Classic, but deliver a slight increase in the upper mids, for a more contemporary humbucking sound. The special Alnico II magnet gives these beauties a singing quality that delivers on demand. The 490R, with its neck-spaced pole pieces, is calibrated to match the bridge-spaced 490T for a perfect match.
