gibson sg faded

The original ones used leftover fretboard materials from the recently discontinued Gothic SG...ebony with moon crescent inlays (standard placement, rather than just on the 12th fret like the Gothics).

 

They ran out of inlays then offered ebony board with dot inlays before switching to rosewood with dots. Now its baked maple with dots.

The fretboard of my 2011 Special is made of what I think is North American rosewood. I've never seen a Special with a baked maple fretboard.

 

Interesting...Gibson.com has baked maple listed under the specs, and that's what I've seen at Guitar Center recently. Wouldn't be too surprising I guess since they are using the north American rosewood On the 60s tribute.
