Les Paul Faded Backs One or Two Piece?
Posted 12 July 2013 - 11:26 AM
Was just wondering whether the Les Paul fadeds usually have one or two piece backs? Because I thought it was usually two piece but I just recently saw one with a one piece and I really checked to make sure it was one piece. There was no sign of it being a two piece.
Is it rare or something? I'm not very experienced with fadeds so I hope someone can enlighten me.
Also if I may ask, how are the standard fadeds compared to the standards in terms of quality and wood? I know it doesn't have the finish and all, any other differences besides look?

A two piece back is going to make no difference to the sound. If anyone tells you otherwise, invite them to partake in a blind test at your local music shop and watch them squirm.

Some people find single piece backs/bodies more desirable, but that hardly ever translates into more value.

I see, haha, must have been my misconception cos people seem to always say one piece backs are 'better' and 'more solid'. Good idea about the blind test though.
Understood. Wouldn't make sense for it to be much more valuable, considering they're the same guitar. Thanks
