    Killer. I saw the red/black version the other day at a local Sam Ash but it was about $4000 more than I need to spend on a guitar right now......

    Looks killer, except for the gold hardware. I just don't get it. I think they'd look so much better with chrome or black hardware.

    Aged or matte nickel would look killer too.

    I could live with the gold though.

    A bit TOO much blue for me. I've never been that big a fan of blue anyway.

    Yeah the gold looks a little tacky on this or any other blue LP IMO, chrome or black would be sweet though.

    I agree, gold knobs needed too. And maybe a blue fretboard.

    Yeah, not an avid fan of blue LP's but I saw that during the week and it could change my mind.
    The quilted flame and the colour reaction to it looks great.
    The headstock inlays are coloured as well as the binding.
    The fretboard shading doesn't look great against it but you could always darken it with some oil.
    Been out since the start of the year with green and red versions but they don't look as sharp as the blue.

    I just love those Widow's. Would love to have one of each color.

    There was a green one on the recent thread on Custom Shop pictures. I thought it was Iguana Burst at first, but they called it Green Widow.

    Beautiful. If I already didn't have a blue swirl Anniversary Flood Les Paul Studio, I'd be checking out one of these. I love blue guitars, but don't think I need 2 blue Les Pauls......well, it's not about need then, is it? Hmmmmm.......

    +1...the white binding would be a nice contrast to that gorgeous quilted blue top.

    At least in a few years the binding won't look like piss.
