Neither? They're signature models re-creating certain guitars. This one is a recreation of Jerry Cantrell's 1990 Les Paul Custom. They aren't necessarily historically accurate, but they're accurate to the artist's guitar.

There to me an artist signature should have identical aging through the whole run. The old process allowed for that consistency…

It is quite odd to see such wide variations. Like buckle wear on some is bizarre if they're not supposed to have any, or the inverse of that is equally bizarre. That is a good point about finish checking being more consistent with the blade method, but that doesn't really help the rest of the aging.

I was happy with the aging on mine but I have to say, after seeing a bunch of others, I might have gotten one of the best of the bunch. The variance is so wild. I'm very surprised. Does anyone know if there were similar difference on the Adam Jones? I wasn't on this forum at that time.
