Cherry burst for colour, Lemon burst for less wear and tear.

I think you made the right choice regarding which guitar to keep. But as far as my favorite, I've always loved cherry LPs, dings and all. :cool:

Lemon - which I consider a third cousin to TV Yellow. Which is my fav Gibson finish.

Someday I'm gonna have somebody make an all-mahogany LP in TV yellow with tortie binding and pickguard.

Hate to be logical here, but which one feels right and sound right?

For the record...Lemon Burst...please.

I would not go by looks but pick the one that plays and sounds better. That said, the 2016 lemon looks a tad better and maybe the fretwear there is for a reason.

As far as how the felt - the Lemon Burst would have won that battle as well. It was the one that played the easiest. I returned a 2020 Standard in Cherry (I like the Cherry too), and that Standard was better than that 2018 R8 in my opinion.

I’m liking the top on the washed cherry, just not a fan of the brighter red tops, they both look excellent though in those tree pics. Can’t have both?
