    I'm looking for a Les Paul Standard in honeyburst with a plaintop. I know that Classics has plaintops, but the green/yellow inlays are absolutely dead ugly.

    So, which year do I have to look for to get a Standard with a plaintop?
    Except the Classics, and R8/0, which other models has plaintops?

    Steve's sounds like mine... '99 with factory grovers:

    Out of the six LPs I've owned, ol' PJ here (Plain Jane, get it? :cool:) is the best by a long shot. My vote goes for 99 standards!

    Yeah, amazing.

    I sold my Les Paul, and regretting like a dog. I orderd myself a Telecaster,
    and I haven't got it yet, but I'm considering selling it. I really need a Les Paul.

    Yeah, Telecasters has great tone, but I reckon I need a Lester more!

    I have to learn to control my GAS. :p

    Beautiful. I'd always opt for a plain top over an ill-matched or grainy looking flame. One wonders how Gibson continue to find enough figured wood for all the regular USA Standards.

    True. I saw a lovely Classic with a top that was great - lemon drop with a lot of mineral streaking and just a bit of flame. The inlays were a honey creamy colour, looked very old but no green. It was also a very reasonably price.
