    It doesn't need to be a burst, but the grain needs to show.
    I'd rather have transparent purple than paint.

    Agree.

    A GT is awesome and have done plenty of them but a dirty lemon plaintop is slightly more appealing to me at least.

    Dirty Lemon or the Yellow Corsa above. Both show the wood grain but are similar shade to a gold top.

    Lemonburst is a great compromise between goldtop & some kind of burst - and they look seriously cool while showing off the top flame or no flame. Think Peter Green's LP

    The correct answer is always Goldtop.

    Always.

    Gold top or solid colour (I like white with all black hardware/binding). I detest most bursts.

    I just painted these - both are mahogany though, so a little different. The red one looks like the back of your pelham blue when in light, this picture is in a shadow. I think "Lucy" style cherry les pauls are very cool and less common

    Being a 1994 LP Classic owner, I agree great bones! For a while now, I have wanted to get one of the black classics with gold hardware from that era and do a pickup swap (ceramics are too hot for me) and replace those snot green inlays with an abalone inlay. That or an Ebony standard w/cream guard etc. really appeals to me. Really NOT needing another Lester though...

    Best of luck with the resto!

    I like those LP Classics and wanted one pretty badly back then. My friend has a Cherry Sunburst Classic but the burst is just a little too much on that model, I like the lightburst better.

    Surf Green!

    J/K ;)

    I like the flecks in the top, so I would go with a highly faded iced tea type of burst.
