The Les Paul Faded is a no non sense high performance work horse and with its affordable price point, semi-gloss top, satin back and sides, genuine Gibson quality components along with a fantastic Gibson padded gigbag, this is a the perfect instrument for any guitarist!
The Faded T has the standard mahogany back and neck with a maple cap for a bit of brightness that you would find on most Les Pauls. The Slim taper neck will have you shredding and riffing wherever you are on the rosewood fretboard.
The 490R and 490T pickups are modern sounding, medium to high output pickups. They aren’t made to give you brutal metal tones but will easily handle high-gain or low-gain amps making them versatile enough to be used for anything from blues to metal.
Here’s what Gibson say about the Les Paul Faded…
“Les Paul Faded 2017 T Played-in looks, modern performance. The 2017 Les Paul Faded T has the look of an instrument that already has a few decades of playing on it and has been shaped directly by the player’s hand, for an absolutely perfect fit.
This guitar represents the perfect marriage of tradition and modernity. It has modern 490R and 490T humbuckers, 22 polished frets for amazing bends and a great feel, a slim-taper neck profile for fast and comfortable soloing, Ultra-Modern weight relief for comfort and enhanced resonance, and nickel hardware, adding to its yesteryear vibe.
It also features our brand new Faded Gloss finish process for a more authentic worn-in look. Delivered in a padded gigbag, accompanied by a strap and a polishing cloth.”
