Very beautiful!! I had a hard time choosing between my bourbon burst and this ice tea burst. Decisions! The bourbon only won because the top had a deeper flame to it.

Gorgeous!
After comparing your finish to mine, I'm wondering if they(Gibson) mislabeled mine as a bourbon burst? I was just looking at some BB models online and they seem to have a darker brown outer spray where as our guitars just have the dark red outer spray. Weird. Inside my pickup cavity it does have the 'LPBB60s' initials. Have you had a chance to look inside yours yet to see if it says the same?

This is a bourbon burst Epi Standard 60's next to my supposed bourbon burst Gibson. Quite the difference....

No, I still haven't had a chance to wear out the first set of strings yet. When I change strings I'll see about opening her up.

That is quite a difference. Yours does look significantly redder. Yours definitely has more pronounced flames than mine. But my flames are almost ghost flames, they show up much better when the light is just right, and I'm looking at the right angle. How much does yours weigh?
