    Guys, post up pics of the most beautiful LP (to you)! Doesn't matter if they're flame tops, quilts, solid color, whatever, as long as its an LP. It can be yours or someone you know, or just a random pic from the web... Let's see what you've got!

    Here's my contribution:

    Black beauty....
    Well, it's technically a 2017 Nashville black beauty...

    She's only a few months old but I've kinda fallen in love with the 3 pup setup...
    First non pickguard Les Paul I've ever bought....

    Pup covers not soldered and I can't decide whether to keep em on or off...

    As for the Bigsby, well I'd put a bigsby on a cereal bowl...also not drilled....installed via vibramate bracket

    And it's got a poker chip now...

    I was just scrolling down this thread and thought 'I wonder if anyone has mentioned the Artisan?' And then BAM! there it is. I love those things.

    Is that yours PierM?

    No man, but I'm searching hard for one of these but with 2 pups, which is even more rare.

    Best one I have seen here is BuzzHaze's (r.i.p.) Custom, in natural finish...
    No need to suck up to him now (or ever)...it's what it is.

    As much as I love my Blueberry Standard, I'll always regret not pulling the trigger on this HP when I had the chance...

    I don't have any pictures to hand and it's totally NOT the traditional look for a Lester, but the colour and finish that absolutely blew me away was the Ocean Water Premium Quilt from 2015. It genuinely looked like gazing down through clear blue water on a tropical beach and seeing the ripples in the sand beneath. Fortunately, they also sounded pretty good too.

    Rather foolishly, I passed on the chance to buy one at a stunning knock-down price after dealers were selling-off the troubled 2015 stock once the 2016 models came out. Can't remember now, but I had a feeling there was a Sprint Run version that came without the G-Force and the zero-fret. Still regretting that one...!!
