    Hello.
    I'm trying to figure out what colour my guitar is. I bought this in around 2002-2003, off of a friend I served in the army with. He bought it in the fall of 1996 in New Minas Nova Scotia, Canada. It's a Czech made Les Paul Standard. I can't seem to find any colour charts, or really anything at all about it. I'm holding a white paper next to it to help with colou is much appreciated.

    I remade the album. Can you see it now?

    Also, I've seen that chart, but could not find the colour on it.

    THAT is a nice plaintop ! That's what a Standard LP should look lile. Love it.

    Color ? I'd say natural.

    Take it outside to get a better color balanced picture. I think it's alittle too reddish (if I refer to the knobs).

    Is it more like this ?

    The knobs are normally a little reddish

    The Bohemia Epis do have some 'special' specs, and I guess this means color, too
    that's all we know about czech made Epis....

    The picture I took is pretty close to it's colour. I assure you it isn't brown, or walnut

    Smooth. Hands glide around nicely, good tone and sustain. I could probably clean it up a bit though.

    Since there seem to be no info on that guitar, you get to name its color.

    AFAIK, no guitar finish is called Coffee. Go with that.

    It's a trans-finish, so Tea-stained makes sense. Not sure about the TWACOM acronym though, sounds like a Taiwanese mobile phone operation. :)

    Epiphone did some natural mahogany finishes. Not sure if this is that color, but if its a regular natural finish, it's very faded. Probably not the case though, or you would see the original color underneath the areas that are covered. Have you removed the pickups to see what color is in the cavities?

    could be a heavy faded 'trans blue'

    even some newer ones look similar...
