This is a player grade guitar, but it seems to be a really good player guitar. Setup perfectly with low action. The guitar did clean up pretty well with a little polish, wax, and the fretboard oiled.

Still not sure of the actual burst color yet, but I will be contacting Gibson.

Looking good. Looks like one Birdseye on it.
The neck bled onto the binding and the faded- cool To me that means it was played a lot which is a good sign.

Thanks guys. I’m still not sure of the color, I’m guessing either “Iced Tea Burst” or “Sunrise Tea Burst”.

I’m sill awaiting a response form Gibson on my inquiry. Hopefully I’ll hear something by week two.

That looks like an absolutely perfect Les Paul! Very similar color to "Antiquity Burst" to my eyes. They could have called it anything though.

Beautiful Les Paul, Congrats!

Picture looks like lemonburst or such? If they made an R8 like that. Perhaps faded Iced Tea.
Beautiful!! Congrats!

Honey Burst wasn’t a color option in 2013 at the Custom Shop (at least not by name, the term was used by Gibson USA at that time though).

The OP’s guitar (which, BTW, is a beauty… love a good plaintop) looks to be one of the Tea variants (I’m guessing Sunrise Teaburst).

Gibson Customer Service stated that the color is “Iced Tea VOS”.

I buy that. Like everything, Iced Tea varies in different lighting situations.

Here's mine in more muted incandescent light; really brings the Tea. Elsewhere it can be red to 'sunrise'...
