Hey there. I just made a mild impulse purchase of a Faded Les Paul. I have been reading up on these for a good while, so I feel confident. My offer, which was a good chunk lower than posted price was accepted. Please justify my purchase....I know I'm asking the wrong, I mean right, crowd to validate my decision. https://reverb.com/item/18150140-2005-gibson-les-paul-standard-faded-8-5-lbs

I thought you were buying the one in the pic. The lacquer on that headstock looked suspicious.


Your git, is beautiful. :)

I wish I had boughten a truck load of those faded guitars. They sold for a real attractive price new and have increased substantially in value since. Yours is very nice, great top and someone really played that thing so odds are strong it is a nice one.

@Adamc The faded series are thin satin finishes, I think they still offer a similar finish on their brown faded studio models.

An interesting (and NICE) finish. Do you know what it's called?

Thanks for the complements everyone. I will give an update once it arrives. I am very stoked. I still feel funny about how much I paid for it,

There was no mention of the color/finish on the listing. I would call it a Golden-brown-ish wood tone with wooden highlights...but I'm an idiot

I believe this to be the case. Well I am hoping
