Les Paul Standard Faded - 50's Neck! in Gibson USA Posted October 10, 2012 · Report reply The 2005 model is the only year of the faded standards that was not chambered (though it is weight relieved). These are awesome guitars that are sought after by players. Not collectors, but players. I got mine for $1300 used, but it quickly became my number 1. Mine has bb1 in neck and bb2 in bridge. Anyway, I have had many Lp's from several decades including 50's, 70's, 80's, 90's, and 00's and my '05 faded standard is the best LP I have ever had purely from a player's standpoint.
