Gibson SG Bass Faded Solidbody Electric Bass Guitar at a Glance:
  • Short-scale comfort and tone
  • Custom humbuckers for subterranean tone
  • Nitrocellulose lacquer finish, for the look of a well-aged classic
Short-scale comfort and tone

The short-scale length of the Gibson SG Bass Faded's neck makes it easier to navigate the fretboard and is perfect for guitar players moonlighting on bass and players with smaller hands. But did you know that the scale length of a guitar or bass has a direct impact on its tone? The harmonics your bass guitar generates are spaced along the strings, based on the length of the strings. Shorter strings mean the harmonics are packed in tighter, giving any note you play more harmonic richness than a longer scale would. Just plug the Gibson SG Bass Faded into your bass amp, and you'll see what we mean as notes come alive and cut through the mix without becoming overbearing.

Custom humbuckers for subterranean tone

Whether you play rock, jazz, country, or metal, you're going to love the sound of the Gibson SG Bass Faded. That's because it sports a pair of Gibson USA's amazing TB+ humbucking pickups. Driven by premium ceramic magnets, the TB+ and TB Mini pickups give you the perfect blend of punch and clarity. And with individual volume and tone controls, the Gibson SG Bass Faded lets you dial in a wide range of killer tones.

Nitrocellulose lacquer finish, for the look of a well-aged classic

Gibson's SG Bass Faded wears a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes (a standard back in the day) are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to "breathe." Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful, they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities. The SG Bass Faded has the look and feel of a well-aged classic.
