2016 Faded... I've had SG Standards, Specials, other Fadeds, American Strats & PRS and a slew of other guitars since I started playing in '96... Much to my surprise, this may honestly be best guitar I've ever had! Effortless to play and just feels great. I've been trying to convince myself that I need to "upgrade" to a Standard, but there really is no reason to. Gotta get pickup covers and top hat knobs then it might just be perfect.
I recently sold my 2013 Future Tribute and 2005 Faded Special. Instead I bought this. A 1965 SG Junior. Pretty well-worn, to put it that way, but it plays and sounds awesome. It came with unoriginal knobs, bridge and tuners, so I had some repos put on. The Vibrola arm was missing too, so I put one on.
