Honeyburst

Recommended Posts

Well, as promised...I DID it (well, actually my luthier friend, Brian, at my dealer's did it for me)!

Changed the "aged" (pee yellow) fret markers in my 2000 LP Classic, to the "normal" version!

MUCH BETTER LOOKING, don't you agree?!! [thumbup]

Do you mean what caused me to change them out, or what caused the

Yellow-greenish color, of the originals? Gibson caused the original

color, supposedly to look "aged," I guess? I love that guitar, but

I never cared for, or understood the "fake aging" thing. I've never

seen a vintage Les Paul, or any other guitar, for that matter, that

had old original inlays, that were anywhere close to THAT color! LOL

 

So, I'd been threatening to change them, for years. And, knowing my

friend Brian, I just decided NOW was finally the time. Just picked it

up, this past Friday. [thumbup][biggrin]

Well, it's all a matter of opinion, and "taste," but Pippy's is certainly right up there! [thumbup]

I love BongoScot's! It makes me weak in the knees!

i was thinking of changing the weird amber color plastics out on my 2014 studio with the cream.... i like the amber color but there is no contrast with the body. it almost blends in.

i don't mind the color of the new plastics that they are putting on the new studios. they just blend in with color of the honeyburst and desert burst and there is no contrast. i think the new colors look good on the black, blue, and red fire burst.

This identical guitar is on my gas list. How much does it weigh?

[laugh]

 

It's not going to be 15 lbs if that's your major concern....

This identical guitar is on my gas list. How much does it weigh?

All the Traditionals 2014 offered by Sweetwater at the moment are between 8 lbs 13 oz and 10 lbs 13 oz.

 

For getting a detailed overview, you might refer to the weights provided here when comparing those in stock, and also compare to those finished differently linked to this page:

Now THAT is very nice indeed, veeman.

I love the mix of figure and grain.

 

[thumbup]

 

If it were mine I wouldn't be able to resist covering the p'ups, popping on a p'guard and giving the thing a shot of nitro.

Then it would look very much like an original '59.

 

Gorgeous!

No guard will ever touch this baby, but pup covers for sure. Strap locks already installed, always the 1st thing done. Faber parts will be next. I wish someone made gold witch hat knobs, all my guitars have them, but they just wouldnt go with this finish. Probly go with speed knobs, never did like bell knobs.

Do I read Seymour Duncan on your Classic? [scared][-X

 

[biggrin]

 

All kidding aside, I guess that won't hurt the wonderful graining of the top ;)
