Black plastic and binding on a 2018 Historic 58...did they have this on any original 1958 Les Pauls?

It’s different. Will certainly divide opinion. My advice, take the sticker off the pickguard asap. It’ll sun fade otherwise. I speak from experience.

|Black bunding was never a thing on any originals - though I seem to remember seeing a couple orignals through the years that did have black plastics - PG, pickups rings, etc.
