This colour was sprayed on the earliest Les Paul and has been a staple for Gibson ever since. The earliest ones were sprayed all gold. Most people thought it was a bit much and they switched to just the top. Your top must be perfectly smooth and flat before application. Our aerosols make it super easy with little to no clean up and no cleaning your gun. Apply until good coverage is made. Then clear coat or age to your liking with our aged clears. Our Lacquer is made two different ways for two different looks. The vintage one is made with brass flakes. It will age gracefully like the originals over time to a greenish hue (patina). Mixing this can not be done in large batches. It is mixed and filled fresh when ordered. Brass flakes don't keep/store well in lacquer. The second version is made with pure gold flakes which will not green with age. This is the way a modern factory guitar is made.
