Description

SG bang for the buck winner. The Faded SG Special is a no-frills axe with the same woods, silhouette, electronics, and hardware as the higher end SG Standard, but with a satin finish, dot inlays, and unbound neck.  This one, in Faded Cherry has the vibe of the original ca. ’62 SG/Les Paul models, when they replaced the slab body models.  The Faded process makes for a better guitar from a tone point of view.  The thin satin finish allows the guitar to resonate better, for increased sustain and a more pure voice – plus it gives the guitar a cozy, broken in feel that many players will appreciate.  Finish aside, it’s very much a traditional SG, with all solid mahogany construction including body and neck, tune-o-matic bridge/stopbar tailpiece, and Alnico 490R and 490T humbuckers, controlled by dual volume and tone controls with 3-way selector.  Neck profile is sort of in between the 50’s and 60’s. It’s not as chunky as a 50’s but rounder on back than a 60’s. Lightweight and fun to play, this one’s in very clean condition, with a great setup, for just $550. It includes your choice of the feather light case pictured, or a clean original Gibson gigbag.
