Been kinda looking for a lemon or honey burst that would make a good candidate for a mild "tribute" to the Peter Green/Gary Moore "Greenie" Les Paul.

I found plenty that had beautiful curly tops , but they all just didn't have a certain "look" to the curl. They were all either too loose or had straight stripes etc. Finding one with the right pattern was elusive but I think this one will do.

Yeah that's a great looking guitar man. Should make for a great " Greenie " project guitar. Epiphone has really put out some nice looking guitars over the years....

Nice! Which model and year is your candidate guitar?

Make sure you darken the fretboard.

It's a 2007 , yeah fretboard looks lightt mostly because I bet it's dry as the Sahara. It's had the Jimmy Page mod, and a set of GFS pro A5's. Will likely keep all that and just flip the neck pickup.

Should be here today, more info and pics then.

There are stains you can use to make wood on the board darker. Staining has to be done before oiling though.

Yep I've messed with stains in variations on my knife handles since the mid 90s
