    here's mine polished up with virtuoso....what I love about it is it is sort of like a chameleon, it changes what it looks like depending on how the light hits it. Sometimes it looks very tobacco burst other times it looks more honey burst. I got quite the compliment the other day from a guitar instructor. He is a strat guy but said "now that is a les paul I can get into...I don't even want to know what that thing costs. I told him and he didn't believe me because he thought it looked vintage.

    Yeah... if you like using your guitar to hammer nails.... That thing is worth about $500 at the most.

    Really like the LP Faded's here, especially Stonevibe's - is that a HB or TB?

    Here's mine, a 2008 Honeyburst. Haven't done anything with it yet, thinking of giving it a little more sheen with polish in the future. And maybe adding a Bigsby.

    No, Long & McQuade here in Canada sold them too and another local shop called Avenue Guitars (currently at the time of this posting) has a bunch of NOS ones that aren't even put out on display.

    I've owned several in the past, no longer have them. Great guitars, I really like this model and wish it was still around.

    Really wish they would make these again. Perhaps they realized they were too good of a value...

    An early 90s classic, R0, midnight manhatten and a faded standard are on my watch list. Thinner varnish = better tone or so the internet rumour goes! I just think they look pretty cool and different.
