Gibson SG Special Faded
2004
USA
Worn Brown
Seven Engineering P-90’s

Normally this model comes with Gibson's 490T and 490R pickup but has here been upgraded with a set of P-90’ from Swedish boutique pickup manufacturer Seven Engineering.

The SG Special Faded is crafted from solid mahogany and has a "worn" satin texture like that of a much-played vintage guitar, giving it the look and feel of an SG that has already been on the road for decades.

The SG Special Faded is hand-finished in grain-textured nitrocellulose in a simplified process that results in a gently road-worn appearance. Gibson opts for a breathable nitrocellulose finish that will encourage the natural vibration of the instrument for a purer tone. In addition, a nitro finish is very porous and actually gets thinner over time, so your guitar will further age gracefully as you play it.

It has "quarter sawn" 12-inch radius neck, with a '50s neck profile, with an unbound rosewood fingerboard and 22 medium-jumbo frets and comes with 5-Ply Pickguard designed like the larger pickguards of SGs from the mid to late '60s.
