Picked this up on sort of a whim…pretty top and great deal. Really surprised how much I like it. It’s a 2006.

I’ve grown accustomed to historics, and on paper this thing has some “unpopular” boxes checked…but I can’t help but have fun playing it!

I had one of these in blue and I miss it. Congrats. It’s a beauty.

Love it! I had one in the same color for a while, and also a green one. They are actually spectacular guitars and I wouldn't mind getting my hands on one again.

Very cool!
I love a natural maple top like that.

My only complaint is if they put on too much yellow for a “vintage” tint to be called natural.

I have a Custom built just a couple of years before that with the identical finish treatment.

Might I inquire on the price, if only relative to similar traditional Les Pauls?
It’s funny how a double cut may get no love at all and would hang in a store forever (I saw this myself) but then suddenly become “rare and collectible” in the used market and command a premium.
Sort of like a hardtail Stratocaster.

Bought the twin to that brand new in 2004; sadly traded it off awhile ago. Also had a green doublecut Studio. They're great guitars although purists often wail ...
