    So, I’ve got a nice True Historic 59 in the shop right now and noticed something odd with the “Les Paul Model” screenprint on the headstock. Looks like they didn’t like the original placement, so they just sprayed black over it and tried again...

    I could see an owern being upset about it however, especially when you pay that kind of ca$h.

    Once you get rich and famous playing it, it will be like that upside-down airplane stamp; priceless!

    I’ll be sure to let the owner know - maybe he’ll opt for the lumpy shadow look over the refin we’re about to do...

    The silkscreen is not lacquered over, so it is probably just the shadow of the original 'Les Paul Model' silkscreen which was rubbed off.

    .................it's a 3 dimensional lumpy shadow. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    It adds "depth" to the purchase. ;)

    It’s the whole thing - just a little more difficult to photograph the “Les” portion. The “MODEL” portion is also there.

    Actually, it’s very clear that it IS lacquered over. It’s not a shadow, it’s an actual lump.
