Okay, here's a picture of a guitar I got recently from Gibson - a "playable scrap" Blueberry Burst Les Paul HP I traded it for some web copy. There's no way the photo does it justice, the finish is just plain gorgeous. People see it, and it takes their breath away. BUT - no guitars are being made with the Blueberry Burst finish any more! Granted, it's not a "traditional" Les Paul color. But I don't play "traditional" guitar...I LOVE that look. If you love it too, post some kind of thu and if enough people think this is a cool look, I'm forwarding the thread to Gibson. Hey, they can't fire me twice!

nice trade. Looks good to me. thu


A reason why I collect old keyboards is that I feel partly responsible for doing it, responsible for preserving history and being a custodian for these things
Plus, old gear has a story. I like that.

Yeah, that could be really cool. thu


The great thing about music is that there's always something to learn. The frustrating thing about music is that there's always something to learn!

It was something Gibson did in their "let's do some really different things" days and while not all those experiments were a success, I think this is one that deserves to live!

reminds me of a color Paul Smith would use.

Interesting you should say that smile

I have the first PRS Signature Series guitar (long story). He asked what color I wanted. I said "emerald green, not bad potato chip green." And he did the most beautiful green finish ever.

Paul is an amazing, smart, deep person. I have the utmost respect for him and his guitars.
