Overview

The Les Paul Faded 2016 HP is the supercharged counterpart of the traditional SG Faded. It boasts an extraordinary set of premium, high-performance features while maintaining the rugged looks that are the Faded Series’ signature, including an exclusive fast-access heel, developed specifically for the Gibson USA High Performance lineup, to allow unprecedented access to the high notes - which combined with the new soloist neck width, provides the fastest and most comfortable SG neck you’ve ever played. 

Titanium metal for the saddles and the adjustable zero-fret nut delivers a bright, crisp tone, while being virtually indestructible and ensuring total, personalized control over the action. The SG Faded arrives protected by a high-performance gig bag, and already set up by expert luthiers for immediate playability.

    Comments about Gibson 2016 Les Paul Studio Faded HP Electric Guitar:

    I normally never give reviews but I figured I would for this guitar. I am fairly new to guitar as I am self taught for a couple of years so please keep that in mind. I currently own a Ibanez IC-500, a Schecter Diamond Series, and this guitar and I play on a EVH 50150 amp. All of my guitars are significantly different but this one is by far my favorite. Nearly every time I look at products, I never see reviews from a metal/punk rock standpoint unless it's on a ESP guitar. So if you are looking for that type of guitar standard, this probably isn't gonna be for you for the price.

    I personally love Gibson and the feel of this thing is amazing! My only issue with it is the automatic tuner. I am not highly educated on guitars but I can tell you that if you are brand new to guitar and you get this then feel free to keep the automatic tuner. If you have experience with tuning, take it off because I have already had to replace parts of it and it looses tuning.

    Now as far as the pickups go I personally do not like them at all. I play a lot of "dirty" music with a lot of crunch and I mainly play rhythm. From my experiences of just practicing at home, these pickups give me a lot of feedback and are way better for clean to classic rock. Heavy rock and onwards, to me, just doesn't sound right.

    Everything considered, this guitar is great and I am happy with it. It is also extremely easy to customize if that is something you are interested in. I myself am currently customizing it a lot because I absolutely love the old wood look and feel!

        I purchased a Red Wine Les Paul Studio in 2005. Great guitar, but I must say Gibson stepped it notch on this HP model! Plays, sounds and looks awesome! The wood rugged look always turns heads!

            It is a great guitar. The only downside is the lack of customization in the electronics due to it using the PCB.
