Everyone's favorite Les Paul finish?

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering what everyone's favorite Les Paul finish is on the Standard or Classic models? I love the ebony standard with gold hardware (which is what I own), but I really like the desert burst finish on some of the newer models, and I've also always liked the goldtop finish.

usually falls between HCSB and Sunrise Teaburst (StanleyBurst).

 

just depends on the figure and the burst spray.

The next LP I buy will most likely be a Desert Burst (from the new '08 standards). IMO best finish on the LP. HBC is classic, but the desert burst just looks so much more natural on the Les Paul. Match made in heaven.

It's not invited to the party' date=' but the lemon burst on the Gary Moore BFG is worth a look.

Now I will quickly exit, before I get kicked out default_eusa_wall.gif

 

 

I used one last week to try out a Bogner Alchemist, looks nicer in the 'flesh' than on the internet.

Still, from those that are currently offered I prefer a nice Iced Tea or Light Burst.

I like darker finishes, ebony, desert burst, darker cherry, the JB Oxblood finish... I've never been a fan of the lighter/brighter finishes such as the goldtops
