2011 Gibson Les Paul 1958 Junior DC TV Yellow VOS SAVE!

 The Faded Doublecut has its origin in the Les Paul Special Doublecut, which is an all-mahogany flat-top guitar with P-90 pickups first produced from 1958–1960. The "Faded" model is called such because it does not have a glossy nitrocellulose finish, and has "wear" marks added at the factory to make the guitar look aged. The body is composed of multiple mahogany (usually four) pieces and is sold with a gig-bag (as opposed to a hard-case).

Doublecut design

The Doublecut had one major design change: the original models had the neck pickup mounted closer to the neck/body join which resulted in a weak neck join. This was changed by moving the neck pick up further into the body.

Other faded finish models

The "Faded Doublecut" is one of a series (at least as of 2007) "faded" models being the SGLes Paul (single cut with humbuckers) and Flying V. All of these models are made in the USA.
