We don't see many Fadeds sold "locally" (ie: not from Japan) nowadays on ebay and the asking prices are skyrocketing.
£3000 for this one, and it's not a best looking one:
And with ABR-1, Aluminum Stop Bar, Hand-wired with Orange Drop Capacitors, Dial Pointers, Grover Rotomatic Tuning Machines with Kidney Buttons (60's Faded) and Gibson Accessory Kit, these stock new Fadeds are better equipped than the previous ones!
Thanks Joe, it was a nice Cherry Faded, not "clowny" looking, but I didn't play it as much as it deserved, and I know it's gonna be played a lot more by the new owner whose only Les Paul is a Studio. He tried it on my Cornell Romany Plus and was impressed by the sound of the Faded compared to...
Sale day! I've finally decided to thin my Fadeds herd and sold my 2005 Heritage Cherry with 50's neck. Here are the last pictures of it before the sale.

NGD: this 2016 Memphis Historic Gibson Cherry Red ES 335 is the new friend of my best 2005 Standard Faded and 1972 Marshall SB. Another great Gibson, huge clear sound with plenty of rich harmonics! Bigger guitar than the Les Paul but 1Lb lighter.
