    Vintage Cherry and a plain top—the perfect combination.

    As we don't see these reds and plain tops all too often, I thought I'd share this. I got it in late 2017—what a happy NGD it was!

    Feels like it cannot really get much better than this. The only thing left for me in terms of the Les Paul is something aged with Medium frets...

    Try searching for a limited edition '58 Tea Burst "Lightly Aged".

    These came with aged cases. :cool2:

    I've seen a few from European dealers and a few in Japan.

    Some are left over repurposed CC 17s.
    The binding is rolled and frets are the medium style from '14 and Historics. :cheers2:

    Wrong thread? Or maybe I'm just missing the point? :cheers:

    A very good idea. This should and will get a lot of play time. :thumb:

    I somehow fall for the looks of some factory-aged guitars but have never owned one. On the other hand, the shininess of this TH beats the VOS finish of my 2017. In the end, I believe the right thing is to definitely not care about razor blade cuts and the like.

    here's the picture of a 1958 closet queen that was for sale here a few years ago. Very similar in my book

    Very unique color with a vintage vibe. I've never liked modern Gibson Sunbursts because they always paint 'em too dark in the pickup switch area. What I like about yours is that it gets just a tiny bit of darkness near the binding, which gives a visible, vintage look.
