    I've noticed that 'aging' can be very subjective even with same line guitars. They all may have the major tell tale wear areas, but replicating EVERY ding, scrape, gouge on every guitar, in the exact same position is next to impossible. Even between my two aged/signed I can denote differences. The buckle rash area is not completely identical. The scratches are here-

    This is #5

    This is #50

    It depends on the lighting (and it was sunny when these were taken) but they are there, it's more on the subtle side but that again may be the light making it appear less pronounced than from another angle.

    You could just get a key and scratch it yourself.....:)

    I always wanted to "key" something......:hmm:

    These are all so nice, you guys are lucky to have them.

    YES - I'm very happy to have such a great guitar like the JP. That's not the question. But I'm interested in how detailed the aging is.

    i find it more interesting that one is brown and two are red... I don't think lighting could be that drastically different...

    Looks like they spent more time aging#5 than #50. The wear spot is so much smoother on #50....... They must have been able to get the aging time down.

    And the real one is pretty brown as far as I remember.

    I find gibson aged replicas to be more like heavily inspired by, rather than full on replicas when it comes to age marks - you'll drive yourself crazy if you try and compare every detail to the original because every guitar in the run will be just like it in one way or another and completely different in another.

    O.K. - "heavily inspired by" - sounds plausible.:naughty:

    At least they have made the claw mark always arround the same poti :fingersx:

    I had 5 or 6 Sandys in my hands and found the aging quite comparable. I could find all the prominent marks on every guitar in nearly the same place.:applause:

    Concerning the back color I can tell you more, when I will see the the other guitar in real life. On the photos it may depend on the lightning.

    Haha, didn't need that advice to do so. Just returned with Perry aged and signed # 45 and The Beast # 17 in the back of my car. Can't wait to bring them home. The Perry is very subtle flamed but very nice. Heavily aged, even the tuner housings, which is very nice and it's a featherweight. I have one in a brown case which I like but the quality of those cases gets worse and worse.

    100% agree. They could also have sikscreened it with Joe's signature as they did with the Pearly, Felder and others. At least it has the Joe Perry strap as a goodie

    Today I got my a/s.

    The aging on the front is nearly 100% identic to my aged one. I can find nearly every mark at the same place at the two guitars. That's how I suposed it to be. The back is another story.

    I'm very happy, that the brown case closes perfect.

    I will spend the next few days in sound comparison.

    does the stripping on the back of any of these go down as low as the original - it didnt look like it when i was taking a look at BOTB. the wear area in the replicas looked much smaller.

    but sometimes angles can make things hard to compare
