Gibson SG Faded T 2017 Worn Brown Electric Guitar
The Gibson SG Faded T 2017 Worn Brown Electric Guitar has been carefully crafted by Gibson USA to look and feel like an old friend the first time you pick it up. With its more authentic new Faded Gloss finish and nickel-plated hardware, the SG Faded looks weathered by a few decades of playing, while the guitar itself, like every new Gibson guitar, feels as if it has been shaped directly by the player's own hands, for an absolutely perfect fit.

The SG Faded is an artful blend of history and modernity, where SG traditions begun more than five decades ago meet with 21st century innovations for sonic versatility and playability. A set of 490R and 490T humbuckers with Alnico magnets delivers historic SG tones, while a slim-taper neck with a thicker rosewood fingerboard and 22 polished frets combine for an amazing feel in the hand, yielding easy bends and lightning-fast soloing—an impressive value for a high-quality, made-in-USA Gibson guitar. Delivered in a padded gigbag, accompanied by a strap and a polishing cloth.

Plek'd for precision playability
This Gibson SG Faded T 2017 Worn Brown Electric Guitar feels fast and precise, thanks in large part to Plek processing. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard you're likely to own. Each note rings loud and clear, and the fret edges feel smooth as silk.


The Gibson SG - a brief history
In the early 1960s, Gibson sought to bolster its reputation as a quality builder of electric solidbody guitars in the midst of slow sales of their now-iconic Les Paul. Originally intended as a new model of the Les Paul, this new design failed to obtain the endorsement of Les Paul himself, and as such was renamed the SG (Solid Guitar). The newly minted Gibson SG was thinner than the Les Paul, with two cutaways, pointed horns, beveled edges, and no body binding. Originally advertised as having the "fastest neck in the world," the Gibson SG is presently one of the most copied solidbody electric guitar models in the world.

SlimTaper neck feels great and provides exceptional playability
The Gibson SG Faded T 2017 Worn Cherry Electric Guitar sports a comfortable, fast-action neck with a SlimTaper profile. Early Gibson guitars had huge, often ungainly necks. By 1960, Gibson had gradually carved down this profile into what became their SlimTaper neck. As your fingers move down this neck, the precisely controlled width-to-thickness ratio of the SG Faded T's SlimTaper neck provides you with a consistent, fast, and comfortable feel. It's no wonder many lifelong guitar players consider the SlimTaper Gibson's finest neck.

Fat, smoking humbuckers
Gibson's SG Faded T packs humbucking power. When you really want to cook on a solo or deliver some thunderous power chords, you reach for a guitar that's got a pair of humbuckers, right? Forget all those thin, out-of-phase guitar sounds that session players overused in the 1980s and (sad to say) right through much of the '90s. That's not for you. Your sound is all about the warmth, punch, and midrange complexity you can only get from a pair of Gibson humbuckers. The SG Faded T comes with a pair of 'em: a 490R in the neck position and a 490T at the bridge. The guitarists at Sweetwater will tell you: these pickups exhibit uncompromising power, whether you're playing rhythm or digging into a solo.
