Uh-Oh! Pangs of regret?

 

Well......I modified mine with the Gibson pickups that are in the Gibson standard and it sounds great. Now I am thinking about trading my strats for the Gibson Faded Standard. However theey were modified too so I would take a loss.

Do you mean the Gibson Faded Special?

 

I have one of these and I'd thoroughly recommend it.

G400 Faded.......I just sold mine for $600.

 

The G-400 Vintage are no longer available. These are quite desirable because they had the neck binding. The newer versions are called the faded but lack the binding. Which was yours?

 

I have to say, if Epi started doing G-400s with the full binding and full poly cherry finish I'd be severely tempted.

I don't know what you mean by neck binding.

Binding is a plastic or wood strip that is applied around an instrument to add good looks and protection from bumps and nicks on the edges. They can be plain or fancy: a simple white strip or an intricate decoration made of many laminated pieces. You see it on the outer edge of the guitar body (front and rear edge in some cases) and possibly up the outer edge of the neck and the headstock as well. Take a look:

Hope this helped!
