    After trying to force myself to like Strats for the last few years and 3 Strats later, I’ve decided they just aren’t for me. Traded my 62 Hot Rod for this yesterday.

    I’ve had a couple Les Pauls in the past (50’s tribute, junior) but never a PROPER one. After doing some cleaning and a setup I’m quite pleased. It needs some covers for the pickups but otherwise it’s pretty great. Obligatory pics:

    I like it! and I think it looks great without PU covers! You know, raw rock n roll badass look!

    That would look killer with double creams!

    Beautiful! I like uncovered with this finish myself, and as @scozz said, creams would be excellent! HNGD!

    Thanks folks, something about a Tobacco burst eh? I gave the guitar a proper run through today and I was actually very pleasantly surprised by the tones I was getting in split coil mode. They seemed a bit thin when I demod the guitar at bedroom levels, but cranked up they were quite sweet. The humbuckers nail the classic Les Paul tone I have in my head too. It’s still the honeymoon but I’m VERY happy with this Lester!

    Looks great, congratulations. My vote is for double creams or nickel covered for the pickups. I don't care for exposed double black, but that's just a personal preference.

    Play the dog out of that thing.

    Congratulations!!!

    The guitar looks great with those double black... would look even better with double cream.. and would have a more vintage look if you add covers..

    I believe it would look great in all cases
