I just got the first pics of the Les Paul clone I'm having built:





Now I need to decide on a finish. I have a couple of ideas, but I'm open to suggestions....:wink:

Looks nice, whoever did it did a great job.

Finish, my vote goes towards white with gold hardware. Looks great, and even better once it's aged and it gets the natural yellow-ish creamy color. Drool

I'm not at liberty to disclose the builder, but his former employer would sue his ass off if they knew he left with blueprints. (Hi Henry :wave: )

Thanks for your suggestion, but for me it's gotta be a Burst.

These are the two finishes I'm considering (and these both happen to be replicas as well, the first one is a Max; the second I don't know who the builder is) :





But like I said I am open to suggestions....as long as it's a Burst. lol

And there are a bunch of different Burst flavors out there.

Haha, nice!

Those are some damn nice bursts. I've always loved the trans-amber style one, but haven't got around to buying one (always find something else I need, lol).



Just with the middle area a bit brighter yellowy-er, lol. Kinda like this:

Whatever you decide to get, be sure to post pics of the final product!

If you already have it, get the book "Beauty of the Burst". You'll probably find the finish you want in there.

Great looking replica.

btw, a good opportunity to get the TP location correct (it's off a bit on the Gibson Les Pauls)

A 1958 plaintop burst. Violin or faded Tobacco.
