I haven't seen a thread like this... sorry if it's been done. I'm in love with the Gibson faded finishes. Fancy, shiny guitars with snazzy tops are awesome looking but they're just not my style. I've had a couple - not Gibsons, Carvins with fancy tops - and they just weren't for me. When I set out to get my 1st Les Paul I fell in love with a 60's Tribute. I've added 2 more fadeds since. Let's see pics of all the Faded Gibsons out there and list any upgrades you've done. my 60's Tribute: my Special: My lastest is a Studio Faded: the family: I'm thinking of changing some things on my new Studio Faded. I might change to creme plastics and add gold speed knobs. I also might go for an RS wiring kit. Let's see yours!
