    I was anticipating such a reply! Which is why I said: "The price I have to pay for bringing home a $1,300 guitar" ;) see, if I didn't bring it home... like, kept it at my friend's place... they would never suspect a thing ;)

    Of course, there's no use in buying your dream guitar if you're not gonna play it!

    Still, the price you have to pay is 1300$ if you bring it home or not.

    I haven't noticed that! That's pretty cool.

    Here's another LP Std Faded I found. Same price, same area. Not gonna buy it, just thought I'd compare the two guitars' faded look - and I think this is a faded honeyburst:

    I'd try them both,and get the best one. I went to a Gibson expert with mine, and he took a close look at my faded, he told me I had on of the best guitars he ever saw, light, but not weight-reliefed, good thick/fat and rich tone, great neck... It just had everything he told me. I've found an amazing example. I've had a lot of luck! I'll probably never find a guitar this good again.

    I can't really try them both because the seller only had time on tuesday (I'm arriving Tuesday evening and leaving the following day Wednesday afternoon). I'll try out the other one if I somehow find the first one not to my liking. Which I hope I will, because I like the look of the tobacco burst more than the honeyburst.

    And she's at least 5x nicer in real life due to warmer colors.

    This is very nice. Mine is in Red wine color but that faded just looks so soft to touch. Very nice!
