    Anyone got pics of'em? I'm thinking of getting an Agile Les Paul, and I think black hardware would look cool, so I'd like to see some pics of Les Pauls like that.


    EDIT: When I said hardware I meant black pickguard, knobs, pup rings, etc... that kind of thing.

    I think Joe Walsh had an original Burst with black plastic added-he used it in the early Eagles days.

    Another famous example of this would be Jeff Beck's first sunburst with the Yardbirds. This guitar was later stripped to the bare wood and used in the JBG mk 1 until it suffered
    a major headstock / neck break on tour. I remember seeing pics of it with the black plastic and thinking it was weird....but now it's kinda cool.

    Thanks. It's a 2008 standard faded, stock pickups with aged covers from RSGuitarworks.

    Where did you get the black parts and witch hat knobs? What finish is that-cherry sunburst or honeyburst? I want that guitar! Wanna part with it soon?

    Pickguard comes from Gibson, other parts, witch hat knobs, pick-up rings and switch washer from http://www.guitarpartsresource.com. I first bought a pickguard from them, but it didn't match. The finish is tobacco burst... and no, don't hope, I keep it!
