    I didn't realize that modern goldtops turn green when exposed. I thought Gibson changed the composition of the paint years ago.

    Some beautiful guitars in this thread. I'm jealous.
    Kinda funny how so few get posted as opposed to "relic" threads where people are tripping over themselves to post a picture of their pseudo-treasures. TGP irony. :D

    Is this just a white guitar with blood on it? ...or am I the only one who sees that?
    If it's faded; I don't understand how would the finish fade in that spot?

    It's not blood...it was worn in that manner when I bought it. According to the guy I bought it from, it was previously owned by "a chick band" from California. It faded in that spot because the band's guitarist strummed in a way that repeatedly made her arm brush up against that spot.

    After looking at photos of how my Ibanez has worn after around 3 months of use, I'm seriously tempted to have it professionally stripped and refinished, you can see from the wear that it has a maple cap, in fact, it looks as if I've started to do the scraped binding look to the guitar, it really is bothering more and more the more I look at how the finish on the Ibanez has worn in such a short time and especially the shape of the pattern that it has worn in. I may even get the guitar refinished in a leopard fur/skin finish to match the leopard print Fret Wrap that is on this guitar.

    Stickers all added by me at some point in the seven years or so I've owned this one. Proper details you don't see on relics... mismatched knobs, missing top hat switch button, still-clean newer bridge, missing pickguard screw, EMG pickup.

    This is my oldest guitar, a Romantic era classical unfortunately no longer baring a label but probably of Austrian or south German origin. It plays very well, not as loud or bassy as a modern classical but very sweet sounding. There's an X brace under the bridge although it's a completely different take on it than a Martin style X. It looks pretty clean, doesn't it?

    It's about 150 years old!
