My favorite guitar ever!
The year before last, someone was selling a 2007 in beautiful shape here for $1850 shipped...While I dithered, someone else snapped it up. I hate myself.

My all-time bestie is this 2011 Traditional Faded. I instantly bonded with this guitar, and still love it after 10 years.

Today I decided to do a bit of cleaning on my 2008 Corsa LCPG#282 Heritage Cherry Les Paul Standard Faded and took the pickguard off. I had noticed that its colour had somehow faded to something like a tangerine burst since ten years ago when I bought it, but it was a surprise to see how much it had faded when I saw the original colour under the pickguard.

Just by staying on its stand for the past ten years (and being played a lot too, reason why it has spent little time in its case) it has faded, just like original 50's Bursts. No direct UV exposition except the natural light that comes through the window (from SW.) How cool is that!
Anyone here with a faded Faded?
