I like the color, I think I had a '67 Plymouth Fury that color:) I don't know about the pinstripe, but it would look really cool up on stage. Love these unique LP's.

All Reissues have them, some are more red / lighter than others. All my Reissues have them on both sides of the neck, the only Gibson southpaw privilege... :LOL:
Wow, I can’t wait to get home from work so I can check the wrong side of the neck!

Well, I called Gibson and I was right that the color is VOS antique metallic teal, the fretboard is Indian rosewood and there is no mention of pinstripes so it was probably done by an artist after the original purchase. That does not bother me because I think they are very cool.

I looked on the other side of my neck but I only have dots on the normal side, not both sides. There is a peek-a-boo piece of the maple top visible under the binding at the cutaway; they didn’t use wide binding in that spot to hide it.

Thin binding at cutaway for all historic Rs, maple visible with clear spray finishes....

Yup, only lefties get dots both sides, as is historically accurate!

This guitar has become my #1. It’s so light at 8 pounds 10 ounces and it sounds huge. These Custombucker Alnico 3 pickups are fantastic.

Lovely guitar! So, have you found out if the pinstriping was done at the factory?
I called customer service and they confirmed that the color is Antique Metallic Teal but there was no mention of pinstripes in their database so it must have been done by an artist outside of Gibson.
