• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

The Gibson logo on the case of my 2014 LP Standard is the gold/black logo. This one is almost worn off yet I almost never used or moved this case. It was stored in a closet off a bathroom. It literally wore off without friction. Only the black background remains.

Are their stencils I could buy? I have antique gold paint I could repair it with.
Should I just ignore the faded logo and let it be?

This was my only Gibson case(or Epiphone either) that the logo was effected by moister. Out of 7 cases-6 Gibson and 1 Epi only the case for the Standard had the logo simply fade and disappear. 3 Gibson Classics. a LP Jr, LP Standard, Epi Casino, LP Studio.
This logo was definitely different from the others. I'm thinking it may have been older. I waited over an hour for them to find a case for this Standard I bought new off the rack. As if a salesman went home and got one of his own cases. I think they had run out of cases.

I should go back to this shop and talk about this case but Ive had it 3 yrs and I'm too chicken to go confront them.

Now THAT definitely sheds new light on the subject. Something sounds suspect; But, it has been 3 years. Difficult to find something CONCRETE to stand on, if you go in and bitch. :hmm ... Unless you play the "crazy motherfucker" card, in which you'll probably get a new case .. or arrested, if you overdo it! :rofl

.. Personally, I'd just leave it alone. You have an interesting anomaly and story to go along with your Les Paul. :ganz :jim
