    Thanks for the nice comments, guys. I almost wanted to sell this guitar so that I can get the R0 faster, but in the end I decided to keep it. It's kinda hard to let her go. ;)

    I played a red one at the local guitar store. I gotta admit, I'm a sucker for ebony boards, and it sounded GOOD on a standard.

    +1 My Manhattan Midnight is my current favorite! Yours is very hot! Mine barely bursts at all, it's navy blue all over except right near the neck.

    Thanks, fellas. It is a pretty good looking and sounding guitar, and I love the ebony fretboard. I can't believe I almost sold her.

    Here's another pic of my LP next to my Marshall. LP + Marshall = <3

    Thanks man!

    Front row:

    1977 Les Paul Custom (ebony) - stamped the day before I was born
    1977 Les Paul Custom (ivory) - stamped the day I was born

    Back row:

    Chinese LP Copy - refin
    1978 Les Paul Standard - my first, my baby
    2004 Les Paul Standard Limited Edition
    2005 Les Paul Standard Premium Plus - (for sale!)
    2005 LTD Truckster - James Hetfield signature guitar

    The green one isn't very authentic. I found it at a pawn shop sitting in the window. They were selling it as a real Gibson. :wtf: So I had to bring a real LP in to show them the difference. It was a ugly shade of purple/pink when I bought it, so I decided to refinish it green. Now I'm wishing I had sanded the black logo off the headstock and put a flame veneer and finished it green as well. Probably the next project. :thumb:

    It's blue, but it doesn't show up really well on that background.

    Just found this thread from a Google search and thought I'd chime in! This is THE GUITAR that I want to buy in the fairly near future! I'll (hopefully) be getting some college graduation money in over the next couple of months and have decided to bypass spending $2500 on a new standard and going on a search for one of these babies which MAY end up saving me a little dough anyways! I actually had one ordered from my local music shop when they first came out, but after 8 months of waiting for it to arrive I chickened out on spending 2 grand, paid my car off and went with an American Deluxe Strat. I'm STILL kicking myself over that! At any rate, hopefully I'll be able to find one of these beauties in near mint shape! Your's is an awfully sweet looking axe (not to mention the others you have posted!) Any suggestions on where I might find one of these other than Ebay?? Thanks!
