is there a HUGE difference between these two guitars becuase faded is nice and affortable while standard is over a grand. Are the pickups different or something else?

It's mainly aesthetic differences, such as the Standard has a neck with binding, the pickups are different, it has the trapezoid inlays, and the Standard comes with a real case, and not just a gig bag. Having played them both though, I can say that the Standard is more comfortable to play. Out of the ones I played it seemed to have a better factory set up then the Faded. The faded had uneven frets with sharp edges. I think the standard is worth the extra money b/c you pay the difference for a good fret job. Oh and it wasnt only one faded that was poorly set up, it was all of them

comming from a gibson owner. the standard is better, and the customs are untouchable. the faded is good if you just want to get a gibson to show it off and thats about it. if your gonna go for the gibson go for the standard or a custom.

when i special ordered my custom i got the white toni iommi replica. the one he uses in some of the music videos

The special faded has a different bridge pickup, a different finish and no binding on the neck.


I don't think I'm missing...anything. Oh yeah, the Standard has got "SG" printed on the truss rod cover.

my bad, I forgot one thing : the Standard has got trapezoid inlays and the special faded has dots.

so the standard is the even more sexy guitar with a different bridge pickup, compared to the special faded.
