    How do you figure? These guitars are always in high demand and are very nice btw, I owned one that I highly regret selling.

    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.

    If its a 2008 standard the neck should be asymmetrical

    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.

    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!

    True, you have a point there.



    To be fair, the OP asked for no one's opinion. Yet, almost every post here is someone stating their opinion. Unless there's a rule that opinions can only be positive or kissing ass, bosnia didn't do anything wrong. Just being honest.

    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?!?!
