    Just got my new LP 60’s standard in the Ice Tea finish, these photos are unedited to try to accurately show the job they did (only blemish I found was a small chip in the pickup selector chip, not a deal breaker BUT disappointing for sure) Guitar was a little dusty but no finish flaws or defects I can see & the burst looks great! Plays like I hoped it would, the neck is my preferred profile smooth fretwork (15 mins of playing so haven’t had a lot of time yet) & the frets don’t buzz out anywhere so I think we are good! I was surprised the pickups came at about the height I would want them & the stoptail is all the way down into the body. The frets do need a cleaning/polish as they have that residue thing & im going to set it up a bit more take some pics of the inside cavities for documentation as well! Any questions let me know I’ll try to find out. She’s not heavy (IMO) but is definitely noticeable on my shoulder.

    That's a beautiful LP. I'm really digging those Indian Laurel fretboards now. They look much darker and so much better than that Pau Ferro crap they were using recently.

    Nice one.

    See how everybody comments on how photos don't represent well the true color of the guitar, once they see it in real life ?
    reelaroundthefountain took two photos of the same guitar, probably minutes, if not seconds apart and they look like two different instruments.

    First photo has that dark hard edged burst. Big contrats between burst red wine and flames orangy-yellow. Plastic is a bright white.

    Second photo has a gradual fade with a burst that shows the flame. Flames that are soft and subtil with a lighter, brighter almost mango hue. Plastic has an aged tint.

    agreed! the guitar takes on some different contrast depending on the lighting conditions, second photo is under some basic fluorescents while the first photo is just the natural sunlight coming into the room. when looking at it from across the room the flames are almost not visible creating a plain top vibe till walk towards it & they start to jump off the top.
