  • Description

    The SG Faded 2016 HP cranks the Traditional Series model up to 11 with an array of top-notch High Performance features. Crafted using many of the same ingredients as its predecessors, the SG Faded 2016 HP sports a double-horned solid mahogany body paired with a comfortably rounded mahogany neck. The neck is capped with a superbly playable 12"-radius rosewood fingerboard and a High Performance titanium zero-fret nut that allows you to adjust your action to taste. The High Performance fast-access heel enhances playability even further by providing comfortable access to the higher notes on the fingerboard. The dot fretboard inlays in genuine mother-of-pearl are both simple and elegant all at the same time.

    Under the hood, a pair of Gibson 490R/490T humbuckers can take you anywhere from sweet, warm humbucker tones to scorching hot leads. The 4-knob control layout holds true to the traditional Gibson design while contemporary High Performance upgrades including a sturdier noiseless toggle switch and gold-plated multi-contact jack offer superior sound and connection.

    The hardware on the SG Faded 2016 HP is given an updated treatment. Gibson has added their revolutionary G-FORCE Tuners, offering unprecedented automated tuning capabilities. You can now access any preset tuning in just one second, which means you can realistically change tunings in the middle of a song, if needed. What's more, the tuners are now automatically engaged to operate both electronically or individually by hand. Compared to previous generations, this G-FORCE system provides a smoother feel when tuning manually, quieter operations, and better looks. This latter day classic also comes equipped with a chrome Tune-O-Matic bridge featuring durable, lightweight titanium saddles and a stopbar tailpiece for maximum sustain. Comes complete with a deluxe padded gig bag.
