I like it. I am not into severely mismatched tops but I also don't like perfect tops either. Yours looks a bit like my CC4:
That was my thought exactly. I love those streaks that are on both sides. There are points where the flame matches but it is less flame on one side. Defiantly has character.I really dig that top - it has a real vintage look...plus, the mineral streaks send it over the top. Get it - it’s a definitely one of a kind!
I took a look at your thread. Looks like you have a stunning one! How are you finding it after some time playing?
Yes, I just found this one to play so nicely. The neck is the perfect profile for me I think. The stock pickups sound pretty good to me, I will do the Peter Green mod thoughNew standards are a great value. Nice flame tops, perfect neck size (not too much thin, not a baseball bat neck). Definetly great sounding guitars. Nice handwork too by the Gibson guys. They really have improved the QC.
I will be upgrading pups very soon but not absolutetly necessary, but I prefer a more vintage tone.
Get yours, dude!
This. I dig mismatched tops as long as the depth of figuring (flame or grain) is roughly equal on both sides. When the top half looks like a flame top and the bottom half looks like a plaintop, that looks strange to me. Likewise, perfectly symmetrical flametops looks unnatural to me too. Wood shouldn't be perfect.Nice, a little mismatch is natural to me. Ones that are plain tops on one side and flames on the other would bother me.
SLOPPY SLOPPY SLOPPY, blah and far less than meh .... exactly what you would expect from Gibson of late that has more interest in promoting mediocre models named for mediocre has-been guitarists like Saul Hudson aka "Slash"Hi y'all. I have my eye on a great Les Paul Standard 60s Unburst which is a good player but the flame doesn’t really match up. I would like to here your thoughts on wether this would bother you or.... do you think it’s a looker? Also, show me your mismatched Les Paul’s! I would be interested to know. Thanks.
