You’re probably thinking that they don’t make a 50s Standard in that color..

They do at Sweetwater.

I wanted a 50s neck LP but I was torn because I did prefer the Iced Tea color.. well they have a Sweetwater Exclusive run of that very thing. Also, it comes with 57 classics rather than the burst buckers..

I will say the photos that Sweetwater takes are usually underwhelming versus how they look in person…

It’s been about 6 mo since I’ve owned or even played a Les Paul.. feels good to be back.

Here is a couple of photos supplied by Sweetwater.. rather underwhelming to be honest

Here’s a few that I took. I also oiled the board real quick. It arrived about an hour before leaving for work tonight. Looks like the handle and latches have changed since my last one too.

Congrats!

Had those been available a year earlier, I would have snapped one up. When I was shopping for my last Les Paul, I was bored to tears with the colors they had for the 50s- My last 3 Les Pauls were a VSB,CSB, and Goldtop. I loved the IT on the 60s, but the neck is not my thing.

I’ve had the normal 60s version in this color and it was a good guitar. I ended up changing the pickups out in that one since my SG had the same BB 61s

Awesome! I’m looking forward to your thoughts after you spend some time with it.
I’ve had a 50s standard before but in a goldtop. This was very early on when they first hit the streets.. I’m gonna give the 57s a fair shot.. they’ve always been a good pickup.. but I may later change them. Just depends how they mesh with this particular slab o’wood.
