    STILL not showing Natural as a colour option for the Les Paul Standard despite making them aware of this on several occasions.

    Cool :thumb:

    For reference they were made between (AFAIK) August 2008 & March 2009. Seemingly VERY small numbers (from what research I've been able to do it looks like there were only about 50 that came into the UK) and seem to be like rocking horse poo in general.

    It looks like I did add this to the wiki after we discussed it previously, but only as a color option on the Les Paul Standard (not the standard plain top). If there is a reason that this guitar stands on its own and requires a separate entry, let me know; like different pickups, wiring, woods, etc.

    My bad if I missed it but I'm certain when I looked (just prior to me posting) Natural wasn't there as a colour option. Also it came with Gold hardware and pickup covers rather than chrome (they did produce a Standard in Natural sometime in the 90's with Chrome hardware and pickups) and a pronounced flame veneer (similar to a Standard Plus Top but was never marketed as such.) The colour is lighter and less amber than the Antique Natural of the Standard Plus Top. Forgot to add that it was a Limited Edition model.

    It was there. I missed it earlier too. So there were two runs of the natural Les Paul? One in the 1990's and one in 2008/2009?

    Yep. I don't know much about the 1990's one. I believe it was late 90's, chrome (or nickel) hardware on the old ad I saw. Can't remember if it was flame veneer or plain top though. Also from memory it came with cream pickup rings rather than the black ones of the later version.
