The forum says no guitar related questions. You should go to the Electric Guitar forum.

But I might as well answer it here. The faded is a better guitar, but if you got the studio you could get a decent amp too. I say go for the Faded. You'd be best off playing both.
Also, why get a Gibson if it's your first guitar? You might not like playing guitar then your stuck with a $1000 lump.
First of all, I'd like to say thanks for your time, and sorry for posting in the wrong section.

Also, this is not my first guitar. It is my second, and I already have a good amplifier. The gibson is my second guitar, my first was an epiphone.

Anyways, thanks. I will get the faded one (I was liking that one more anyways). I appreciate it.
