What Haworth Guitars say:
The Gibson Les Paul Faded 2018 Guitar is a popular Gibson model here at Haworth Guitars. The weight-relieved mahogany body with maple top adds so much sustain and tone to the Gibson Les Paul Faded model but is also substantially lighter in weight than other solid mahogany guitars making it easy to play for countless hours on end.
The humbucker pickups, 490R in the neck and 490T in the bridge, are bold and responsive and are inspired by the original PAF design. The slim taper neck on the Gibson LP Faded 2018 Guitar is a dream to play and the worn finish not only feels smooth and comfortable but also helps to keep this Gibson Guitar at a great price-point.
What Gibson has to say:
The Les Paul Faded guitar fully embodies the celebrated Les Paul feel and tone in a spirited, worn finish. The mahogany body and maple top complement a pair of genuine PAF-inspired humbucking pickups to deliver the impressive power and sustain made famous by legendary Les Paul guitars.
The Les Paul Faded is also extremely comfortable to play thanks to the innovative Ultra-Modern weight relief and Slim Taper neck.
