Fast question - what's the color of the Slash's Gibson in Sweet Child of Mine videoclip? (in Gibson color scheme - Honey Burst, Faded Honey Burst etc)?

Before you call me stupid - I'm asking because I'm daltonist and Honey Burst and Cherry Burst look the same for me...

It's not a Gibson, it's a custom build.

Looks like Gibson's Honey Burst to me, though.

Looks like a vintage sunburst to me. It also might be some version of a tobacco burst,
like someone mentioned above. I also read that some L.A. builder used to make
guitars for Slash and that almost all of his Les Pauls are custom build by that dude.

slash's #1 les paul is a 1959 copy made by luthier chris derrig who died in 1986, slash's manager got him the guitar for the appetite for destruction sessions in 1987. he's also two other guitas by the same guy, some other 50's replicas by a guy named max baranet, and probably a few actual 1957-1960 standards (including one that used to belong to joe perry and slash gave back to him).

then there's his stage guitars, which are actual gibson standards/historics/his sig model along with some acoustic/electric hybrid guitars by guild and other various guitars. this is to the best of my knowledge.

This man knows what he is talking about.

The guitar for the SCOM video looks like some kind of light burst or a faded cherry sunburst.
