Gibson SG Special Faded Worn Cherry 2005

The SG Special evolved out of the Les Paul Special in the early '60s when Gibson introduced the SG as its primary solidbody shape. The Special was conceived as a more affordable, parred-down take on SG Standard, and this designation persists till today. The SG Special Faded refers to those SG Specials that use a worn or satin finish as another cost reducing element.
