    Then there is some gray stuff under the bridge volume knob


    Looks like polishing compound under the knob.  Probably pop the knob off and clean with a q tip.  I don't see anything wrong with the inlay though. Am I missing something?  It is a beautiful guitar!

    Love the guitar.  The inlay has the brown section.  It may be natural but just can’t see how they would let it go through as it doesn’t look good at all.  I think I will just live with it.  I am not looking at guitars as an investment anyway.  Just want to play them.

    That sucks.  As far as me judging your guitar I think the overall look is beautiful and the brown abalone looks like just a natural variance...but I get it.  I can be finnicky about aspects of my own guitars that no sane person would ever notice!   For sure if you wanted that full beautiful rainbow abalone and you paid for it that would be hard to get past.  I think it would be worth reaching out to see if they would just replace that inlay with a clearer bird.  For the price of high end PRS I think they would

    Also that is one of the most breathtaking finishes I have  ever seen.

    If it is natural I am fine with it. I think I will reach out and see what they say about it.  I doubt I will go through the effort of boxing it up.  I love the guitar and it is the most comfortable guitar I have held sitting down.  

    Well the verdict is that it is a natural thing.  Like a freckle.  Good with me!

    that thing is gorgeous!!

    i was going to agree with the poster above that said that the residue under the knob was most likely from the buffing and should come right out.

    i did not even notice the imperfection with the bird. i thought it looked super cool and didn't think anything of it. i get the temptation to call about it when you pay that much for something. glad it all worked out!!

    At least the "freckle" is near the center. I think it would be far worse if it was at the end of one of the wings, for example. 

    Either way, that's a beautiful guitar. Enjoy it!

    here is my review of the olive drab les paul special.

    i am really impressed with it. the quality control is much better than i expected. the finish isn't as ugly as i thought it would be. looks really nice in person, but the lacquer is a little thicker than i would have liked. i was hoping it would check and wear away as the years go on but the glossy nitro may not do that. it is glossy. i would have preferred it to be a little flatter or have a satin kind of feel, but the gloss is good enough for me.  the fretboard is bound, which is a nice touch. the wrap around tailpiece is going to take some getting used to. the strings seem to be a little slinkier than i expected and i think it is because there are no dedicated saddles like on a tune o matic bridge and stop bar tailpiece. it is really bright and resonant when playing unplugged. plugged in the p-90s sing. if i play with the neck pickup volume rocked back you get that classic eddie vedder esque clean sound like from his old tele. the bridge pickup roars and cleans up nicely. i played it with my old marshall and my matchless. i think it sounds better with the matchless, but sounds really good with both. it does clean tones and overdriven tones really well and is very versatile. it is a lightweight, simple, rock machine.

    i was impressed with how clean the routs looked, and the pickup control cavity was really cleanly routed and soldered. it has the vintage style orange capacitors, which i always liked. the only thing i could think of to complain about was the fretboard was kind of dry. a little lemon oil took care of that easily.

    all in all, i am really impressed with it and at this point i am happy i got it. my only question is why has it taken me 28 years to get something with p-90s in it? pics to follow.
    What were the go-to tunes that you want to play first with those P90’s?

    i've been playing it so much i don't remember the first few songs. i know i played a little bit of everything just trying to get a lot of different sounds out of it. i do remember black shuck by the darkness sounding particularly good for some reason.

    I love the way revstars look! That blue with white stripe down the center one is beautiful. I like this one too! Do they all have the dark red/maroon color on the back?

    Just took it for a quick spin. Feels amazing out of the box. Comes with my favorite strings , elixirs, so I don’t even have to change anything. The neck is super smooth and it’s very comfortable for me. Very happy with it. And the metallic green is incredible in person.

    lol i forgot i knew mississippi queen. good call.

    i just played it with my marshall and the new threshold maximizer pedal from bowman audio endeavors. i left it on the settings from when i last played it with my les paul custom and i had to completely change the settings around because the p-90s are so hot. gonna be a bit of a learning curve with the pedal settings now.

    what do you guys think, black knobs or reflector knobs? i think reflectors pop more against the drab, but what do i know.
