Great for the price!
Bougli, 09.03.2018
My first Gibson is a melody maker.This is my second one and quality is there! Had a copy with Dimarzio pick up upgrade but the Gibson model here is really more easier to play! Have to retune it a bit more often than my other guitars and thats where the automatic tuner comes handy!
Would buy again if asked.

It is not a Special, but a Special Faded HP
marcusrb, 09.12.2017
You have to pay close attention when buying and always check the manufacturer's official website. In my case: it is a SG Special Faded HP of 2016 valued at $ 1100, in my case I paid 800eur and I will not pay the difference. Thomann keeps saying that it is a Special, and in my box comes Faded 2016 HP, but looking at its code and investigating with Gibson USA, it confirms that it is a Special Faded 2016 HP (which I believe is not even manufactured). It is a guitar with a lot of tact, very soft and mast for my perfect taste. Classic sound of SG but with less bass and treble and medium very good. His pills are medium gain, not so perfect, are the 490 and for my tastes more than acceptable, I had no budget for a better because I did not need. Very light structure and robust and solid body, makes you feel comfortable in playing both sitting and standing. The "Faded" is for the finish and nothing else, I liked this vintage touch that the Special that there are chrome details, in short is a matter of taste there are no more differences apart these (and 200eur more). The G-Force, good invention, I did not have another one at the time and it's great for me, although the tuning in the old way is always the best option. It has other types of adjustments and it is good to take it into account. For the string theme comes with a set of Gibson mounted, and at the moment they were tuned and quintadas, nor does it need to do more. By the way, in my case did not come the multiherramientas, that in another model if that is (I have claimed and do not know ..) Customer service in this case is slow to answer and I honestly no longer protest. So always check and check the pocket of the case, which often comes with a strap, a basic one. By the way it comes with its case not of the rigid type, but it is well packaged. I would repeat the purchase without hesitation, although I have compared this model with the Special 2017, and the second 200 euros more has the difference of the chromed details alone, the rest except the smallest puncher, is all the same! The 2018? I think it comes with minihumbucker ... no more. The models are better before 2016 I suppose.
