    My favorite flame style, it not only looks like actual flames from some angles but it looks old/antiquey regardless of when the guitar was made.

    Hi :wave:

    I'm new to the forum - I'm also a guy with a newly found love for Les Pauls and Les-Paul-style guitars. I really enjoyed browsing through the examples in this thread, so I decided to post some pics of my _first_ guitar, resembling the Les Paul design. Though it doesn't have a "Gibson" on the headstock (I hope my second one, one day will :rolleyes:) nor is it a true Les Paul copy, I think it has presence enough to stand among all other worthy examples of the Beauty of the Flame. I hope you like 'em!

    I would personally classify the pattern as Pin Stripe with a hint of Fiddleback.

    P.S. Sorry for the quality - I shot the pics on the go with my phone.
