  1. +1 I feel the same way. My first LP was a Classic Sunburst from 2002. I never got comfortable with the pickups and when I finally had the change to play a Standard side by side with the classic I new that I had to get the Standard and let the Classic go. I'd always had that feeling but the Standard confirmed it for me. But my Standard is a Faded model from early 05. The first year. Seems to be a great guitar and not the same as other Standards.
  2. Great looking Std Faded! Great Choice! The reason they go for such a high price is because they ARE that good! I love mine and I'm happy to say that I got it at a bargain price considering what they are going for now. They didn't make them for very long and they got really popular fast. Maybe thats why Gibson discontinued them? Either way don't worry, They are one of those rare models that have been going up in price and have been since I got mine used in 2007. Mine btw, is a 2005 Tobacco with a 60's Neck profile. Gibson Only made the 60's Necks for 2 years! In this day of mass production the Standard Faded actually stands out and the price reflects the demand.
  3. Not that this helps but this is one of the biggest reasons I own a Standard Faded. When I first ran my hands down the neck of my 2005 LP Std Faded I knew I had found the one for me! Good luck. If everything fails you can always sand it!
  4. Beautiful Faded for sure! I think I like better then mine...... Sweet. I want to have Larry do the Paul Green mod on my Std Faded, but I can't pull the trigger and ship my guitar away!
  5. I'd sell a kid or chop off my left testy before I get rid of my 05 Standard Faded.........!
  6. Thats not a Standard. Its a Studio. No, they don't' make a Standard Faded anymore. Produced in 2005 and Discontinued in 2009. 60's Necks were discontinued in 2007
  7. Wow, This was like walking through a crime scene investigation! Good eyes on everyones part.
  8. I think he Just wants to shoot someone
  9. Well I never dreamed of it, or even heard of it! But after I played it I knew it would forever be in my dreams. It's no R9 or some fancy pricey LP. It's just a 2005 Standard Faded. 60's Neck.
  10. Well I've had a lot of valve (Tube) amps and I must say that when I got my hands on my current JCM800, I never looked back! I was lucky and picked it up for $400 but you can still get them for under 1K.

    Put covers on pups

    Its super easy. Just two small solder joints to hold the covers on and thats it. Does the sound get a little smoother? Not sure what you mean by that. I think you might loose a little volume but I've never noticed it on mine.
  12. Actually, thats how you do it. I have Marshall JCM800. I highly recommend one.
  13. Just get what you want!
  14. Thats debatable! I digress.. You need to start working up the old ladder. Talk to the store Manager and be firm. They sold you a lemon and its their responsibility to fix it or replace it. Having someone other then GC try to setup the guitar doesn't void any warranties! Especially if GC tried and failed! Call your local BBB. Make a formal complaint. You would be amazed how this can help. Get ahold of the GC Regional Manager. Flood them with letters. Whatever you do, DON'T GIVE IN and DON'T GIVE UP! Hell, I'd even go as far as to stand in front of their store with a sign telling everyone who goes in that they won't honor warranties! Throwing it on eBay will only screw some innocent buyer and probably cause you more headache's then its worth.
