Hey guys! :)
I'm new here, but I wanted to do something fun.
A share of interesting\unusual tops on a Les Paul or any other model!
I'll start, my Gibson Les Paul Standard 2019 in Iced Tea has a kind of a "monster" flame that fades into a plain top with big rings at the knobs area:

I wouldn’t consider yours that unusual.

My 2014 R8 is a bit unusual as it was sold as a “plain” top.

It has a heavy “claw” type top

Bit of an ugly duckling but highly recognizable.

Best part is ..... it’s a tone monster that has only gotten better with time.

Ugly? She's a unique beauty duck!
(I sticked with the "duck" term 'cause she's really yellow like a duck haha)

What a beaut. I love plaintops. I'd take a plaintop R8 over a flametop R9 anyday. My R8 has quite a bit of flame too. Enjoy your ugly duckling!
