Gibson USA SG Special Faded, Worn Brown


A 2011 Gibson SG Special Faded, in excellent all round condition and comes with Gibson Gig Bag.

Wicked SG attitude, in a simplified no-frills package. That’s the essence of this 2016 spec Gibson SG Special. Packing the same power and intensity as the SG Standard, but without all the trimmings, the SG Special has retained the heart and soul of the SG ‘ the solid mahogany body and ’50s rounded neck profile ‘ and combined it with dot inlays, silk-screened logo, a pair of Gibson’s hot 490 humbuckers and a deluxe gig bag.

Hands down, the SG Special Faded is the best combination of features and value in Gibson’s iconic SG line-up. You still get the dynamic, slim mahogany body and hair-trigger quick neck that have made the SG legendary, but without all the non-essentials.

The ultra-affordable price tag on this guitar is owed to fewer coats of finish than can be found on the traditional SG Standard and SG Special. This stripped-down finishing process means that not only will you enjoy more resonance but you’ll be the proud owner of an SG that looks straight out of the ’60s. The SG Special Faded is uncivilized. It’s fierce. And it’s got to hang in your guitar rack.
