Les Paul Double Cutaway Faded - Headstock logo Question in Gibson USA Posted February 8, 2009 · Report reply Hi everyone... Had a question regarding the Gibson Logo on the LP faded DC... I recently purchased a 2005 model... guitar sounds great with the P90's I have a few other Gibsons so this was my first in a faded color (faded cherry) I recently noticed a shadow-like film around the Gibson logo and the "les paul model" logo... I recall seeing a Les Paul DC selling on ebay a week ago with that same "filmy-ness"... almost like a decal... When i checked all my other gibsons, none of them had this since they were lacquered... Is this common of the faded series or is it fake? Thanks in advance for your input !
