I've never cared much since it is electric and it does nto affect the sound. Mine is a sunburst finish which I like. I like the entire guitar. I have replaced the toggle swtich and the volu,e & tone potentiometers (knobs) I also got a set of Gibson gold tuning machines/pegs back early in the 90's and put tjem on. Otherwise it is stock and terrific. I play it with some great piano, flute, sax, keyboad. Goes anywhere -- like a tuxedo -- sounds great. Two things I will not give up .. my M1 Garand and my J6 (well also my J-100), my .357's, my acoustics, my .45, my 1st Need water purifier, my Vasque Breeze boots -- probably a couple more things). I gave up my ex before I got my J-6 (should have done that sooner) I had to give up flying and and smoking and bars and scrapping.
Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam
