Re: 2008 Gibson Les Paul Standard Faded F/S

That's probably one of the finest-looking examples of a standard faded I'm yet to see.

These are indeed super-nice guitars. I play mine way more often than either of my historics.

The OP might want to list the upgrades done, though.

You've been around the block long enough to know that is in bad form and uncalled for in a For Sale thread. If you don't like the price then don't buy it.

That is a killer looking top on that one. GLWTS

Not on these, they were 50's or 60' and even the 50's ones were on the thin side and nowhere near the fat hsitoric 50's shape.

That is a unique top on a Faded. What's the weight, if I may ask?? Lovely axe.

Mine has a 50's neck, and I agree - it's smaller than the historic R7 or R8 50's style necks, but still very comfortable.

Re: 2008 Gibson Les Paul Standard Faded F/S

These are highly sought after for those who know what they are looking at.

Very curious about the neck, upgrades etc.

Too bad someone had to post here and show their lack of forum etiquette. Hopefully that didn't run the OP off.

Also...he states OBO and free shipping!

Re: 2008 Gibson Les Paul Standard Faded F/S

Great looking guitar! Can you post a few more pictures though.. Neck, back, a side angle would be nice. Any dings or nicks? Also you mentioned the 50's upgrade, can you give a little more detail to that pls and tnx.

For what it's worth it's one of the best tops I have seen for a faded standard. And it does say Ono... Out of production, and even if you did buy one brand spanking new, did it look this good?

It is called Etiquette. You do not post negative comments about someones price in a For Sale thread. There is a difference about opinion about the item being sold and opinion on the price. Like I said if you don't like the price simply don't buy the item. What the hell is wrong with you two?!?!

Okay, I didn't know that rule so I apologize for giving my opinion about the price. Is it finished now? Looks like the mod has deleted some comments so let's stop about it or he will be deleting more comments.

Re: 2008 Gibson Les Paul Standard Faded F/S

The guitar was purchase last year for $500 over asking...I am sure there will comments to that as we'll but who cares it was a 50 th bday present and the best looking I have seen. The upgrades are antiqued new hardware, pots and caps and p/us are 59. The neck is a late 50s not super fat but not skinny like the '60. There are no dings and one small blemish under the e string the size of an almond that was there when purchased. It was done out in LA by a guy who also sells on eBay under max guitar. I had it checked out by a local luthier who said it was one of the best jobs he had seen and the guitar should be worth what I originally paid. I will try to post more pictures later this evening.
