GIBSON SG FADED WORN BROWN Relic Upgraded PU Bridge Tuners HH USA Guitar 1437

Regular price $549
Gibson SG faded--lot of guitar and killer tone for the money!
This is a 2011 Gibson SG Special faded in worn brown finish. This is a very cool guitar that's in road worn condition with some cool upgrades--the tailpiece is a high mass design with built-in fine tuners--very cool.  Tuners are upgraded to locking mini-Grovers, and neck pickup is some kind of nice humbucker. Knobs are Fender amp-style, and rear control plate is a cool metal pewter look. Previous owner put a layer of clearcoat on front of body and headstock. Feels a little rough, but still looks good from a few feet away. Back of neck and body have not been messed with, so they still have a nice smooth feel and the frets are in excellent condition. 50s rounded profile feels great in the hands. I just set this up with new strings and set intonation. It's ready to play and enjoy. Basically this guitar will appeal to someone who wants a faded relic looking guitar with some nice player's upgrades, but not to someone looking for a super clean specimen. No case. Weight is 7 pounds, 4 ounces. Thanks for looking.

Manufacturer Info

The SG Special Faded is distinguished by its simpler headstock adornments, the businesslike dot inlays on its rosewood fingerboard, and its worn satin nitro finish. Its solid mahogany body packs all the resonance and sustain that has helped to make SGs legendary, and it sports the beveled edge that is such a big part of this model's distinctive styling. 

Two deep cutaways with sharp, slightly asymmetrical horns offer access to the top of its 22-fret neck, which you'll scale at lightning speed thanks to the SG Special Faded's fast, comfortable, rounded '50s neck profile. Cranking all this tonewood and superb playability to the max is a pair of Gibson's most popular humbucking pickups from the Modern Classics series: a 490R in the neck position, and a 490T in the bridge. Made in the style of the hallowed PAF humbucker, with genuine Alnico II magnets, this pairing offers everything from smooth, creamy, vocal warmth in the neck to raunchy rhythm tones and searing leads in the bridge. Keeping it all locked and loaded are a Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece and a set of vintage style tuners with vintage pearloid buttons.
