This was my best friend's guitar he bought and toured for 10 years with. He stepped on his lead and ripped the pickguard clean off when playing New Zealand and after he retired it. it had a gold mirror pickguard with an EMG in it and he had it sitting in a corner with no case for years. I finally screamed at him to give it to me and I did a full refresh. I couldn't find a real gibson pickguard so my luthier friend surprised me with my band name in the Gibson font. This is a really awesome nasal sounding guitars with a 498t in the bridge and 490t iin the neck, Grovers and tonepros hard ware. My friend also put thumb bleeders on it when installing. It's the worst when playing at the speed of light live haha.

I've always preferred a red or yellow sunburst to tobacco but it looks incredible with gold hardware.
You have a very nice and generous friend.
