Dark bust with a dark back, not into the natural backs on the tobacco or bourbons- and at the standard price point
I agree.Personally I’d like to see the Custom Shop match the backs to the tops on their reissues - why on earth does a lemon burst, which is supposed to replicate the appearance of a almost completely faded out burst have a deep blood red back??? Drives me bonkers - I can see like a factory burst or bourbon burst having a dark red back, but the iced tea and lemon variants should have substantially less red and should match the top fade they are trying to emulate.
Hell No. haha! I don’t like that style of Pelham blue. Unless it’s actually aged. Plus, I’d like traditional specs with 58-59 style necks. I guess you’re right,and I could look past everything except for the neck profile. I really loathe 60’s slim taper necks .There is the Modern in faded pelham
I've always really liked the way the white ones look when they age and yellow a bit. Looks so cool with the cream binding and plastics. White is s color I would really like to have.White on a Les Paul Standard.

Love this, especially with the clear speed knobs. I assume this was some kind of custom refin or something. The Custom returned to action in 2007 with new pickups, and the standard would see occasional appearances.
