The 2016 SG Faded T is offered this year with powerful pickups and time-tested hardware. This is a guitar that any SG fan would love to own. It comes in a choice of worn satin nitro finishes, all beautifully faded for a timeless look. The construction uses the same materials as its predecessor of 50 years ago with a solid mahogany body and set mahogany neck.
The neck marks the return to Gibson' traditional neck width that players prefer, using a self-lubricating Graph Tech nut for better sustain and improved intonation. The rosewood fingerboard is thicker than last year', offering a more solid playing feel, traditional tone and better sustain. Electronics feature Alnico-powered 490R (neck) and 490T (bridge) pickups that produce everything from warmth to sizzling leads.
Chrome hardware includes a tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece, and traditional manual tuners that add a vintage note, but with performance that is smooth and efficient. The 2016 SG Faded Series T comes setup by factory experts and includes a padded gig bag.
