    I'd swap all gold hardware for chrome and put those worn chrome pickup covers on it, with that 'frosted' look...but then I dunno if I'd still like such a thin body on a LP...everything else about it is pretty cool but what is replacing the 4th speed knob??

      $1500 - $225 = $1275 with MF's 15% coupon ....tempting...Black is the one color on a Custom LP that is just so bad ass...classy yet killer...

      Oh my if I wasn't broke i would have bought one of those right now. I really don't care if the body is thinner nor chambered. The les paul i have is chambered and it sounds awesome. Though I think it will sound like the les paul i have since it has the same pickups but im gonna check it out.

      The ones with the balsa wood center were the Les Paul Studio Lites. I have one and its a great guitar. I don't think the original Custom Lite had that, but I could be mistaken.
