A Classic Look For The Modern Player
The Gibson SG Faded HP Electric Guitar is manufactured to the highest standard, and includes a lightweight mahogany body, along with a maple neck. The use of mahogany provides a great amount of sustain, and a quality tone. Finished in a vintage-style worn cherry, the Gibson SG looks as if it has a well-used heritage. In addition to this, the SG Faded HP Electric Guitar is equipped with classic appointments including a double-cutaway design, black pickguard, mother of pearl inlays, a rosewood fingerboard, and many more.
Slim Taper Neck
The 2017 Gibson SG Faded HP Electric Guitar features a slim tapered neck, that is perfect for players with smaller hands, or younger players. Its slim taper makes it easier and more ergonomic to reach certain chords, as it allows the players fingers to be perpendicular to the fretboard, overall giving you more accuracy and clarity. As well as featuring this elegant neck profile, the Gibson SG Faded HP is also equipped with a fast-access neck heel, and a double-cutaway design, providing you with the ultimate access to the higher frets.
61T & 61R Humbuckers For PAF Inspired Tones
As well as offering a classic SG appearance, the SG Faded HP Electric Guitar, is equipped with 61R and 61T humbucker pickups. This powerful duo of humbucker pickups are perfect for achieving that classic PAF tone, with extra projection for those solos. Controlling these pickups is easy, with independent volume and tone controls, along with an upgraded and more durable, aviation grade toggle switch.
G Force Auto-Tuning System
Unlike other guitars from Gibson, their High Performance range all features the G force self tuning system. This innovative system works by a mechanical device that is secured to the headstock. Each machine head contains a small servo motor that can wind the string up or down. Simply push the on button and strum to see this device in action and perfectly tune your guitar. Not only does the G force tuning system provide standard tunings, it also offers alternate and custom tunings, tuning to instruments that are in tune with themselves but not to concert pitch, adding pitch offsets to individual strings, and tuning with a capo. Powered by a rechargeable battery, the G force system provides up to 100 tunings on one single charge, and also allows for manual tuning.
Titanium Zero-Fret Adjustable Nut
The Zero-Fret Adjustable Nut is a superior nut design in Gibson’s High-Performance series of guitars, due to its exceptional adjustability to match various playing styles. This innovative Nut benefits from an all-titanium construction for extreme durability, and a retaining screw so the nut stays in place when you change strings. Like with bridge adjustments, the Zero-Fret Nut allows you to adjust the height and angle, for the optimum feel.
Aluminium Tune-O-Matic Bridge Enhances String Resonance
The SG Faded HP Electric Guitar, features an aluminium Tune-O-Matic bridge, which is an extremely popular fixed bridge type due to its stability, reliability, comfortable playing position and impressive sustain. Additionally adjusting the string action and intonation is extremely simple with a tune-o-matic bridge. Simply adjust the height of the bridge with the mounting rods to alter the action and screw in or out the bridge saddles to achieve perfect intonation.
