does anyone have this guitar? in TB HB or CB please share photos
Plenty of owners on here and maybe they can answer my question - wasn't this a production run for GC only? I know they don't make them anymore, but it wouldn't be hard to find one used, right?
this topic has been discussed many many many many many times on here. If you use the search button you can pull up all of the threads and pics you want to see. Sorry to sound crass, but thats what the search feature is for.
No, they're not GC special order, I got this from L&M Canada. They all come in 50's neck, no more 60's neck, they're discontinued.
This is my 2nd LP Faded, I exchanged the 1st one, which IMO it had a bad neck and setup. But this one got the low action as I always wanted, and the FLAME is much better than the old one.
P.S: I had to do the Intonation setup but that's it, no need Neck's Trust Rod adjustment!! NO FRET BUZZ at all!!
I'm adding this one to the list of guitars I shoulda never sold. She was a beauty, but the bridge pup was too shrill. However, this was the guitar that spawned my love for the satin finish lesters. No more gummy necks.
Bought the one on the right 10 months ago, the one on the left 2 days ago.
Once you get your faded LP, you can do this to it...
i read that theyre discontinuing only the 60's necks on the fadeds?
GS, much nicer guitar in my opinion - congrats! How does it sound?
Yes. I've talked to Gibson on a couple of occasions and they are still available, but only with a '50s neck.
i really like yours.. what colour is it??
Supposed to be a Honey Burst, but in person It looked more like a light tobacco Burst.
BTW, since the original question involved color, I guess I should have mentioned the left one is honeyburst and the right one is tobaccoburst.
Here's my '05 faded. It's a fantastic guitar. The Burstbucker Pro pickups sounds amazing!
It sounds the same as previous, but it got the low action as I always wanted from right out of the box, 1.4mm on high E and 2mm on low E, Perfect!! and no fret buzz at all.
Even the cashier at L&M said this flame is MUCH better than the old one, although this one is not as gorgeous as 2manyguitars has though, but LOVE it so much now.
If I photograph mine from the top (headstock) down, my top looks similar to yours except you've got more flame by the pick-up selector/cutaway. It all depends how you shoot it. I've got other photos that show almost no flame, but of course I didn't post those.
Also, the Virtuoso cleaner/polish really enhances whatever flame you do have, and brings out some you didn't know was there.
Yea, I wish I had time to do the polish, but I'm not a patience guy for doing this stuff, so might be happy with the satin color now.
But your flame (old & new) on your faded, are the best!!
Here's my HB after a little polish. It's got a set of Will's HVTP's in it.
whats the difference between 50's and 60's neck??
Here Is mine
