Hi all. I’m new here, what a wealth of information on this forum. I’m after advice, thinking about buying the above LP Traditional 2013. Any idea what colour it is? I note the 2013’s came in Caramel burst and Light Burst but it kind of looks like a blend of both.
it has a red back and neck if that helps.
It also has a 2012 stamped serial, but 2013 model stamp on the headstock. I’m hoping it’s a 2013 version as it’s the Non weight relieved version I’m chasing.

The color code it's in the Checklist card you should have in the case, which should be one of these;
  • LPNTD-CM-CH1 Caramel
  • LPNTD-HY-CH1 Honey
  • LPNTD-LB-CH1 Light Burst
Said that, I would bet on the first, Caramel burst.

Welcome. :thumb:

Thank you for the reply PierM.
The seller lost the checklist card unfortunately.

Then you could find the color code under the neck pickup, or the bridge pickup. They are used to write there that code with a marker pen, and the model code as well. But yeah, I'm pretty sure that's a Caramel burst.

I will never get people losing a COA or a Checklist.... Just leave it alone in the damn case, LOL!

The cherry red back and neck make me think it's Light burst.
If I recall correctly Honey Burst had a brown back and neck.
Beautiful Traditional by the way

Color code is under the neck pup for sure, model name under bridge pup. Take some pics of the pickup cavities. I’m guessing that’s a light burst.

Red back says means Light Burst or Caramel Burst. The Light Bursts had more red/orange around the rim so I say Caramel Burst.

Lightburst based on the back colouring. I found finish colours varied a lot during the 2013 run of Traditionals.
