    First time post, long time lurker. Thanks to folks who post their pics and opinions to help those like me. I wasn't in the market for a new Standard but I saw this thing and had to snap it up. I have a preference for wide, fat flame of the "tiger stripe" variety. I've never come across a top like this before. It has to be one of the most beautiful I've ever seen.

    A great blend of traditional and modern color. Posting some pics to get more Mojave Burst images on this forum :)

    Welcome to MLP.

    That’s an awesome top. I love guitars with oddball grain patterns.

    Not all Mojave burst looks that awesome . This is the Mojave Burst I purchased 3 months ago. The top maple flame was ridiculous. Finally I returned it back to the store due some finish problems. So be careful guys...

    The guitar on the left is my Epiphone. A 9.7 pounds (4.4 kg) Les Paul of pure goodness, but with a different headstock logo. Although I will buy a gibson soon.

    Ooooh me likey! And welcome to MLP! Enjoy the guitar and good company!

    Gibson's website always has photos that make the finishes look awful... but IRL they're all beautiful :thumb:
