I just bought a used SG advertised as a "Special Faded." From the serial number, I was able to determine it is from 2006. The neck has the "trapezpoid" inlays, not dots. There are no emblems or other markings on the headstock other than "Gibson," The pickups are uncovered 490R/490T. The black pickguard is the large "batwing" style. From my research, I have not seen any "specials" with the trapezoid inlays, but the "standards" have icons and other stuff on the headstock. Am wondering what I bought. I tried to post a picture but it said it was too large. Thanks!
