Thank you all for your compliments regarding the top!

It's very interesting that nobody comments on what I wrote.
Does the fact that nobody is complaining automatically mean that you all agree?
I thought this would start a discussion.
But you all proofed me wrong!

What's to complain about? These are great guitars. I've never seen anyone say anything to the contrary about them.

there is a reason Gibson stopped making them

they made them good! they sounded great and they sold them cheep, so they were taking sales away from the more expensive Les Paul models

I'd say that was short-sighted of Gibson. I'd have relaunched the same model with some new marketing BS and sold hundreds of them.

Meanwhile I am also convinced that a chambered LP will get you much closer to that old school tone than a solid one.


Yeah, welcome back into "LP Land" :cool:

Nobody truly understands why Gibson does anything, but I don't think these are the reasons why the Faded was dropped from Gibson's price sheets. My guess would be more in line with timing and the 2008 Standard redesign, making the Standard Faded an orphan in the model range.

I also don't think they were big sellers. The Standard Faded probably did decent numbers, but I don't think they necessarily took away from the regular Standard line. If anything hurt the Standard model, it was the 2008 redesign and the introduction of the Traditional.
