    Hi .I am eyeing these guitars for a long time.JS looks cooler with Poly finish and white binding.LPC is also cool but kind of matte which I don't like , has Nitro but VERY yellow binding.Which one looks cooler? Is Nitro a must?Do they do nitro job over poly finish on LPC? Which one would be more accurate to late 60's CUSTOM ??

    Also does white binding becomes yellowish over the time???

    That's been lots of questions sorry :) Thanks for all replies

    and oh yeah, with the poly finish the binding won't yellow much (if any) over the course of time, as it is not the binding itself put the lacquer over it which yellows when it gets older

    The nitro is only a top coat over poly. With every Edwards, with exception to the LTS130, the finish won't make a difference in tone. Just playability and feel. The only Edwards with 100% nitro is the relic'ed LTS130.

    Has there ever been confirmation that the E-LP-130 is all-nitro? Considering the amount of work involved (in poly v. nitro), it doesn't cost much more (accounting for difference in pickups/wiring). I just assumed from the start that it was nitro over poly.
