    Default '05 Gibson Standard Faded in Da House!

    Just delivered today








    I haven't had much time to play it, but I really like it so far ...

    The 60's slim tapered neck carve is comfortable and best of all, it has a nice satin finish that won't slow you down like the sticky gloss finishes. You could even make it even slicker with a couple passes of some 0000 steel wool without really having any effect on the appearance.

    The guitar with it's non-chambered body weighs in at exactly 9.0 lbs. and has that classic Les Paul tone and loads of sustain.

    I can honestly say this has been one of my better eBay purchases.

    Very nicely done, Dino! I've always like that version of the LP Standard, especially with the zebra PUs. Are those uncovered Burstbucker Pros?

    The most important pieces of musical gear are the ones you can't buy; your hands, your head, and your heart.

    I can't "think" my way to a great riff, I can only "feel" it when I hear it...

    Hey Dino,

    That's very nice!! I love the flamed top...I recently saw a Standard Faded Tobacco burst in a local store and it looked like a plaintop..almost no figure in the top at all..just wondering how the Burstbucker Pro's sound and if they have a lot of bite?

    "He gave him an offer he could'nt refuse." Seriously though Dino, great looking guitar. I remember seeing ads for this version a few years back in Guitar Player. Had an 'ol pic of Duane Allman in the ad too. Always thought it was a beauty. Congrats!
    She looks so $#@!'n good ,so sexy and so frail....Somethin's got the bite on me, I'm goin' straight to Hell.
