You never saw anything like these in the 60s. The Les Pauls i did see for sale were always plain tops, and the cherry red was always very cherry. These are radicalized for todays buyer. They don't look anything like the old originals.
It must have been the rare occasion to find one with a flame top in the old days.

Wow great guitars in this thread. My take away is that it will be near impossible to pick just one!!!!!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Carry on with the killer tops!!

Here is my beloved 2018 R8 in Royal Tea Burst, thanks to Mark Bishop at Mark's Guitar Loft, who is also responsible for the nice pictures (used with his permission, of course). The last pic I took with my phone to show why I had to post Mark's pics! :facepalm:

This is pretty cool...

Sct13... always some of my favorite pictures!!! Look at the three coffee pods on the left... they correspond to the guitar coloring as does the pear cookie jar... brother if you ever conduct an MLP photo class, sign me up!

PS- love the thread and loving the 2018s!

Thanx for the positive comment!

I just take advantage of whatever is nearby and add it too the frame ....

Its about understanding framing and lighting and what the camera will record.

Thanx again
