i posted a thread on this yesterday but it failed miserably probably becuase of a misleading thread title, so here we go....
there are about 100 scratches from my belt on the back and a few chips in the laquer on the top, from the where i hit it on the metal part of the rollers on my desk they have not gone through to the wood though, soo to get to the point, depending on how my S series goes when i refinish it, i've been thinking of re finishing my les paul, it has a tobbaco/ cherry sunburst flame top at the moment and was wondering if you could post some pictures of what trans finish you think looks good on a les paul, i really need some help deciding on a colour scheme, ive been thinking of that denim look,

or maybe an amber/yellow/natural like these,


PLEASE dont post things saying ' you can repair the dings' or ' scratches give character.

but i'd really appreciate it if you could post your ideas to help me decide as i dont want to go sanding down my les paul before i know what i want.

thankyou in advance

edit: heres what it looks like at the moment

JvL that finish is niiiiice

and yeah admbwbrbwrbwrbb or w.e your name is you could try doing a crazy Ormsby type 2 color burst with them candy lacquers etc.

(I think people should bare in mind that his LP already has a flame maple top, so other wood type finishes are kinda outa the question lol)
