My last few Lester’s have been flamed out or gold…

found a completely untouched example of a 2016 Mahogany Standard..

i love Brown guitars though this one is more copper than I expected..awesome color imho…

these pics are from when I unboxed it an hour ago so pics are terrible…I’ll add good ones tomorrow but I can’t stop playing it…also it’s lacking a bigsby…can’t decide on b7 or b5…I’ll install it tomorrow before I add pics

Also will add a pic of my brown recording…also kinda coppery but more brown than this new standard

heres the specs

Kikass!

I can get behind branching out from Goldtops, once in a while. That's a beauty!

HNGD :)

LOL!!

Before I asked what model Bigsby you were going to install, just to be a wise-ass, I double checked the OP, and low & behold, there it is! b5 or b7...

You've got style, brother!!

:cheers2:

Stunning! I love full mahogany Les Pauls. I remember is 2012 when Gibson made some great Standards in three colored variations of full mahogany top and body. I remember they were full satin in finish. Yours looks really beautiful

I can’t get over the cool copper tone of this guitar…so effing cool…

i have decided to hold off on a bigsby as the mahogany top is so neat…

i love plain tops and the grain on this one is subtle, yet stunning…if that makes sense

Here’s a better pic

I know I don't have any right to make suggestions with your new guitar, but I cannot help it. Please don't put a Bigsby on that top...it's so beautiful!

haha…u have every right
MLP is a place for all les Paul addicts :h5:

I reckon this top is so cool it may be the first guitar on the wall without ever donning a bigsby

ur right….the top really is beautiful and completely different than my regular fare

gibson got it perfect…well, almost…im likely to add an amber switch to match the knobs

It should be said that I am 99% likely to route a 3rd pup after christmas….a nickel 57+ with the same plastics as now

but we will see…for now, this thing is a perfect instrument…
