Howdy everyone!

Just got my first Gibson guitar, been a Fender man so far.

Got a 2012 '61 reissue SG in faded worn brown finish...

Charming and resonant guitar...

I couldn't find the proper page for the "faded" reference, but emailed Gibson about it and it is the very same model as the Satin, Lord knows why the different naming: http://www.gibson.co...ssue-Satin.aspx

Congrats on this nice SG, HNGD! [thumbup] Looks very pretty to my eyes. [love]

I'm a bit unsure about the '61 thing though. The bevels look very much '61-like, but she has a Nashville bridge and chrome hardware. However, I would prefer Nashville over ABR-1 and chrome over nickel, so she would be all right for me! [biggrin] [thumbup]

Congratulations, on a Super SG! [thumbup]

I bought the "Cherry" stained version (shown below, the day I brought it home), in late 2012,
and it became a favorite, right away!

Enjoy your "Satin '61!" [biggrin]

Thanks for all the kind replies.

Yes, as far as I can tell (I'm a Fender man, entirely new to Gibsons) it does have a Chrome Nashville bridge and Kluson Deluxe tuners.

Papers and stickers on box say "Faded Worn Brown", instead of satin, but like I mentioned, Gibson replied my email stating that it is the very same model.

Btw I wonder how that finish will age. Nitro lacquer yellows over time, cherry guitars usually fade to light brown or dark wine...

I hope mine fades even more to a lighter shade of brown.

Don't know, how it will fade. But, I DO know, that the finish on the back of the neck will wear down, very quickly!!

When mine started to do that, I had it re-stained, then applied several coats of clear satin lacquer, and it's
been fine, for 4 years, now. [thumbup]

Nice!

Which Fenders do you/ did you have can I ask?

I can't justify having more than one decent guitar at any one time (as I'm very much an amateur and decent guitars genera cost a lot more in the UK) so in past 10/12 years have gone:
Std Strat to
Std Tele to
SG Special to
Les Paul Std to
Tele special to ....... SG Std

For me, the SG Standard beats the lot of them 👍🏻

I've had several guiitars, now I'm down to three.

The Gibson SG 61 Reissue, I just got it.

Fender American Standard Strat, entirely stock, it's probably the best guitar I ever owned and played. It's my main guitar, the one I've gigged with most of my stage time so far, and I can sey it is as good as a Strat will ever be.

...and a rarity, a 1994 Fender Southern Cross Series, made in Brazil. A limited series that lasted from 1993 to 1995, also entirely stock except for the pickups (it has a set of Fat 50s and I replaced the jack for a Switchcraft, but that's it.), quite road worn, but still reliable and beautiful.
