Are there any other sites like Sweetwater that take pictures of each LP for a particular colorway?

Finally managed to save up for a new Gibson LP and was wondering if there were any other sites like Sweetwater or Wildwood that let you pick out a model/serial number by a picture of each guitar in their stock. Doubt a company like Guitar Center would just let me open boxes to compare different models lol. Mainly trying to find a dark standard 60s bourbon burst (as close to a 50s tobacco burst as possible lol). Alternatively, would it be worth it to wait and see if next year's model might have tobacco burst as an option for the 60s?

I think Sam Ash has what they call “Guitars of Distinction “, which offers this.

Also peach guitars, but they are overseas. Still nice to look at.

The issue now is going to be availability.

GC will let you do that to make the sale. When I bought my '14 Trad Pro II, I had five of them brought out and spent about 3 hours picking the perfect one.

In addition to the others, I’ve noticed Musician’s Friend does have it on various Gibsons from time to time, but I wouldn’t necessarily trust the accuracy of their website, since they have sold me guitars as “New” which were returns or banged up floor models.
