Does the Studio Satin Ebony count?

I've let go of a lot of Les Pauls, R9's, Classics, Prehistoric. The one I miss the most is my honeyburst faded standard. I keep hoping it surfaces here. Nice guitars.

Lots of nice guitars in this thread! I've posted mine in a few before but always looking for a reason to show it off.

Here is my '08 Standard Faded:

Yours looks identical to the '05 I just traded away for an ES335...cream pickups and all. I really like the 335 but I'm sure I'll regret getting rid of the Faded. I wasn't going to play it much after I got my R8

Same mismatching pickguard/pickup thing going on:D Gotta hate that pink Gibson plastics... But yeah it's a really great guitar! I'm actually kinda looking to trade it for a 333/335, but if I do, I'll probably gonna regret it:)

What makes a "faded" model different from regular models? I understand they lack the high gloss deep clear finish. Are they much like the "satin" guitars, or different from that finish as well?

How are you guys dying the wood? That looks badass. Is there a tutorial? I really like that Yellow one Skipdog did.
