The Gibson SG Faded 2017 T offers played-in looks with modern performance.

The SG Faded 2017 T 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 feels as if it has been shaped directly by your own hands, for an absolutely perfect fit.

The SG Faded is an artful blend of history and modernity, where SG traditions began 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. Gibson padded gig bag, strap and polishing cloth included.

      Class, Beauty and Value

      By

      First and foremost, the Worn Cherry finish offered on this guitar is absolutely striking. The warmth of the finish is appropriate because of the warmth of tone that this guitar produces. Gibson has artfully blended the look and feel of an older Gibson with the modernity of a new guitar that feels molded to your hands when you play. The more slim, stream-lined neck is a nice touch, especially for those out there with smaller hands, it feels much more comfortable to play. Everything from the humbuckers, to the frets, neck, and knobs feel like the high-quality that you would expect from Gibson. The guitar includes a padded gig bag, but a guitar this nice, I think I would splurge for a true case for it. Absolutely beautiful to look at and play.

      Killer classic back in action

      By 

      from Edison, NJ

      The Gibson SG is an incredible guitar and these new models feel and play just right. These are perfect for any lead players, the access to higher frets is completely open and comfortable. The finish is nice and sleek, and the neck is smooth and easy to traverse. All in all this an amazing guitar, worth every penny.

      By 

      from Indianapolis, IN

      Staff Reviewer

      Pros

      • Affordable
      • Great Feel
      • Great Tone

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Excellent for Practice, Live, or Studio Use
        • For Intermediate Guitar Players
        • Great Backup Guitar for Any Guitarist
        • Great for a Main Guitar

        "So you're telling me I can rock like Angus and with a Gibson guitar in my price range?" YEP!!!
        These SG guitars are wonderful! Not only do they feel great on the hands and look cool with the satin finish, plug this sucker in and let the tone sweep you away. At the first strum of an A chord it'll breathe new life to that phrase Rock N' Roll. Highly recommended for any guitarist, period.

        This is a staff review from Memphis at Store 57 in Indianapolis, IN.

          This guitar is beautiful. It has such a beautiful look to it. It almost looks vintage but with a touch of modern sound. The pickups are HOT and they rock. It handles clean and dirty very well. The neck and body respond super well with it's faded finish. SG's are always light and they are a back saver. Gig bag is included and it is great, fits all my set lists!
