Hi Just wondering if anyone knows what colour my guitar was listed as, I cant find it in any info or catalogues.
I think the guitar is a PE R80 Les paul however the truss rod cover is plain creme and has no letters or numbers on it.
Serial number is 007036
Its a rich cherry purple colour I was going to upload an image however even after satisfying the file size and Dimensions the board says quota reached.
Put it as my Avatar pic.

Also not sure if it was normal but it has factory fitted Di, Marzio Pickups.

Thanks: :)

Beautiful guitar!

This site had a catastrophic crash not too long ago and much of the database was lost as well as damage to the software structure. The result was we are not able to upload or insert pictures anymore. The best thing to do is place a link in your post to a hosting site like in the example below. Use the URL option from the menu.

Coincidentally, I just recently posted a copy of a Vintage Guitar Magazine article about the R80:

I don't know what the official colour name for this but I think it is based on a classic violin staining technique. It's possible that it may have darkened more with age? Dunno. :dunno:

The DiMarzios were an option but I can't tell on the color. I know the catalog lists 2 or 3 colors but yours looks more purple than my R60 which is Antique Brown.
