Hey man - sorry to hear about your Dad and hope all is well now.
I did see a new Standard faded in a local (well sort of local) store the other day and it was a nice one. Not sure if they ship to the US though. I can give you their contact info if you are interested.
One did come into my local store and I believe Will tried to get in touch with you but I haven't seen it in the store so I expect that they sold it. I'll pop him a message to let him know that you are still in search of one and if he comes across one he can contact you.
Hey Colin....how have you been?? Been a while since I've been on this site. My father went through some major medical issues and I spent a lot of time in ICU at our local hospital. Crazy how those things help ya re-prioritize. lol
Anyway, I'm again looking for a 2004-2006 Standard Faded LP in any burst color in the event you have seen any lately.
Actually I called him back and said that I had given you his name and number as I figured the process would go easier if you took out the middle man. But it is up to you - if you want to call and speak to him and give him your email address and phone number go ahead. If not, I'll either hear from him tomorrow or Wednesday (depending on when the other stores get back to him) or I will see him when I am at the store on those days.
Yes, it is Canada's biggest gear retailer. All Gibsons sold in Canada go through their parent company and that parent company is the one that makes Gibson's cases.
I just called him and he said there are five available across Canada (from Vancouver to the Toronto area). He said three are new and two are used. He is sending off an email to the other stores to see if they have flame tops and he'll give me a shout to let me know when he hears back from them. I'll pop you a message as soon as I hear from him.
His name is Will Bennett and he works in the Brampton store. Their number is 905-450-4334. If you call tell him that you got his name and number from Colin.
