I just bought a studio, it took a while to choose between the white or red but I finally went with the white because it was originally what i had my heart set on. But I have heard that a problem with the white is that it fades quick and turns to a more older yellowish white.. which some ppl like because its classic vintage. But its a concern to me and I've been debating on whether or not to just go back and get the red so I wouldn't have to worry about it, at least with the red it doesnt fade and you can see the wood grain.. what do you guys think, any stories on the fading? Also.. anyone know why Gibson disco'd the alpine white???!
