So I'm refinishing an old Les Paul.
I'm almost done sanding and I cant just decide on a finish.

It has cream binding.
What I have in mind:
Snow white with all black hardware and black binding, possibly matte, not glossy
or maybe a matte honey burst (like the ESP Distressed series)
or something I haven't thought of yet.

Thinking about moving the toggle switch down by the knobs and only have volume and tone knobs, my problem here is, I cant use stain otherwise you would see the wood filler in the holes.

Any input from the community?
yellow with black hardware and binding, like a wasp, seriously Ive never seen like that but it would be sweet.

when you say "old les paul" are we talking an old Gibson?

By "old" i mean a 80's or 90's(?) knock off les paul. By Lotus... ever heard of 'em?
