Gibson 490R & 490T Humbuckers

Featuring a Gibson 490T humbucker in the bridge the SG Special Faded 2016 produces a high output and fierce rhythm tone with detailed dynamics due to the Alnico V magnet construction. Additionally the 490R Modern Classic neck pickup produces high output, rich sound whilst retaining a crisp and bright tone perfect for smooth cleans and lead licks. Constructed from Alnico V magnets with 4 conductor wiring the 490R and 490T humbuckers offer a high output tone with plenty of versatility perfect for a variety of playing styles.

Graph Tech Nut

The Graph Tech nut offers increased harmonics in the middle and upper frequency range perfect for a rich and detailed tone. Designed to optimize sustain and response the Graph Tech nut is also self-lubricating which means returning to the original pitch after string bends is extremely quick and accurate.

Tune-O-Matic Bridge

Tune-O-Matic bridges are an extremely popular fixed bridge type due to their 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.

Professionally Set-Up Straight out the Box

Gibson understand how disheartening it can be when you get a new guitar home just to find out it needs setting up before you can properly reap the benefits. By ensuring that every Gibson 2016 model comes professionally set up straight out the box you can plug in and play to start enjoying the premium build quality and incredible tone of the Gibson 2016 models.
