The SG Faded 2016 HP is the supercharged counterpart of the traditional SG Faded and boasts an extraordinary set of premium, high-performance features while maintaining the rugged looks that are the Faded series' signature.

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.
