Wow! Beautiful guitar, Floyd! Thanks for sharing pics of her!
It does look like this year's Iced Tea is a bit different... A bit darker on the outside of the burst and more reddish, less honey, perhaps? I had always associated Iced Tea with the color on the Gibson site here:
Gibson - Gibson Guitar: Electric, Acoustic and Bass Guitars, Baldwin Pianos
Maybe your Iced Tea is more accurate to how a vintage burst might age or maybe Gibson is just doing something a little different this year... Either way, beautiful Lester!!!
