    That looks very much like my 2016 Trad did when new, although they all seem to vary quite considerably depending on the lighting. I’d have almost been tempted to call mine a “Peach Tea” Burst, so orangey-yellow were the edges. The exact details of the colors for the Light Burst and Unburst...

    Thanks! I have to admit that I hadn’t thought about looking under the poker chip (or the pickguard) until you mentioned it — so I had a look this afternoon! ;) There’s a very subtle amount of visible fade; just to say a rim where the edge of the chip sits, and something similar under the angled...

    That’s very pretty! For sure, it has that slight red-orange tint around the edge of the burst that’s more usually associated with Light Burst than Honey Burst, which tends to be more “golden brown” and usually lacks the reddish tinge. Just curious, does this have a natural mahogany back or the...

    Yeah, it’s very much like this. Mine never quite looks the same twice and photos never really capture the wood and the colours of the burst. I have some photos that look like it’s a plain top in something approaching an orange version of Clown Burst, and then others that have wild flame and...

    They all come out slightly different, even within those that are supposedly the same burst but quite a few folks commented on the similarities between the older Light Burst and the newer Unburst when the Standard ‘60s was launched.

    2016 Traditional T in Light Burst: It started out as almost a “Peach Burst” and looked a little too “orange” when I first got it but the colours have mellowed nicely over the last five years or so and now it’s got a very lovely “old Lester” look about it. (This photo is from a couple of...

    Blueberry picking: NGD she just arrived

    Very nice — I love a blue Lester just because they’re so different from the usual yellowy/browny/orangey colours that we’re all used to seeing. I don’t dislike the classic colours but it’s great to see something different occasionally!

    Cupcake? Heresy? Pony? 4 stacks of plexi?

    Hey! Nice to be back! …and, no, I’m not gonna read the thousands of crazy things you guys all posted in the meantime!

    Fingerstyle On a Lester?

    I spent most of this morning playing my ‘14 Standard — and I pretty much never use a pick. I don’t suppose that really counts though… I’m with everyone else who said Knopfler. Sure, Money for Nothing is good but he’s done way better things on his ‘58 Lester since then! And he must be a proper...

    Nine Inch Nails Destroys $160,000 worth of Les Pauls

    I’ve never seen the point of stage histrionics and guitar smashing. It always seemed like self-indulgent BS to me. I totally get the fact that it’s their money and they can do what they want to deliver their show but I have every sympathy with kids working hard to save enough to buy a decent...

    NGPD: 2019 Les Paul Special - first Real Gibson in 12 years!

    Nice, nice, nice!! One of those would totally fill the P90-shaped hole in my current stable. They seem to be scarce as hen's teeth on the used market but that would be my plan too. The TV Yellow is also just soooooo much more interesting than the Vintage Cherry! Good work, OP! :dude:

    What amp do you recommend for a Les Paul?

    As ever... ask ten guitarists a question and get back a minimum of twelve answers! :rofl: There's actually quite a lot to unpack in what seems like a fairly simple question... Depending on personal preferences (and assuming you're not trying to be Eric Johnson, where every different screw...

    Gibson USA Flametop Friday!

    Some lovely looking Lesters in here! The USA line can produce some very purdy guitars. 2016 Trad in Light Burst (ignore that other fella in the background, he's just a photo-bombing show off...)

    Should Gibson bring Les Paul Custom back to Gibson USA line?

    List versus street price is one issue. The other thing you haven't mentioned is that a lot of unnecessary crap was added to the Standards, all of which increased their cost. By re-aligning the model features and removing this from the Standard, and focusing on a core set of, ahem...

    Should Gibson bring Les Paul Custom back to Gibson USA line?

    With respect, I must disagree; this is not fooling around with the model nomenclature. After the initial introduction of simply the "Les Paul Model," which became the "Les Paul Standard," the "Les Paul Custom" was subsequently just another a variant within the Les Paul line-up. I do understand...

    Should Gibson bring Les Paul Custom back to Gibson USA line?

    The overlapping terminology is undoubtedly confusing here... "custom" adjective NORTH AMERICAN made or done to order; custom-made. "a custom guitar" The original name of the Les Paul "Custom" model was intended to imply that they were made to order or to Les' personal specifications. If...
