True Hystoric 1958 2016 Binding's shade


Recommended Posts

The binding color and the red bleeding into the binding are normal. Some have more or less red bleeding. That is due to the analine dye used on the back and sides and the use of a lacquer finish. It probably would not bleed on a poly finished guitar but that would not be historically correct for a Les Paul. I have had many that look just like yours.
