No, she's not. Tobacco burst Customs aren't very common and it's really nice to see such a beautiful example.

HNGD and welcome to MLP!!

I'm serious. It doesn't mean that there might not be a blue million somewhere. I just haven't seen any like it. It really is nice and I would hang on to it for dear life if I were the owner. They'll probably welcome you in with open arms over at their club. have fun with that beauty.

Welcome to MLP mate. HNGD for the Custom.

The Plus Top Customs are getting rarer these days on the second-hand market.

I like the look of the top hat control knobs on the '56. Most '56 Reissues have the amber knobs, not the ones you have with the silver inserts....but I like the look.

i just changed them, the amber knobs are just not a good combination with the shade of gold on this LP.

there are times i think about selling it because the color really is not that appealing for a goldtop IMO, but i have the darn thing set up so good, i just can't get rid of it.

current set up is Kent Armstrong P90s, tusq nut, light fret dress, about 2/64 string height at the 12th fret, it plays like a dream. :dude:
