Mine is the first Les Paul I ever bought, in 2000. It is a tobacco burst with a 3 piece top and one piece hog back,1 piece maple neck (with tiny wings on the headstock, holy veneer). Dot inlays, silkscreen logo, ebony fretboard, shaw pups, otherwise looks like a standard. Thinner like other studios. I own other Les Pauls that I love but I will keep this one before the others. Sentiment for sure, but also because it has that thing that sings. It has never failed to support me. A very inspiring guitar.
