    I added a Gibson historic blank bell, some Allparts mother of pearl tuners buttons, a ToneNinja mother of pearl switch tip (had to glue it with epoxy as MOP can't be threaded) and Dunlop Strapslocks.

    Man that is a good lookin' guitar. I'm a desert burst guy myself, but these bourbon bursts are quickly moving up on my fave list. Just a beautiful piece. Congrats.

    Thanks! I like Desert Burst too... except the plain black on the back and neck: you can't see the wood anymore. If you want a Bourbon Burst, hurry up, the 2018 LPs won't have this color as far as I know.

    Well, I've been on the fence for over 6 months whether to go with a desert or bourbon...

    Bourbon it is...thanks for the clarity..
    That thing is astonishingly gorgeous :drool:

    Congrats

    Thanks!
    What's the point of a finish if you can't see the mahogany through it? Bourbon Burst is the go to!
