Faded blue Les Paul Classic Premium Plus from 1996.  This guitar is part of the limited edition color series from 1995 and 1996 that Mike Slubowski does an excellent job describing in this article https://lespaulforum.com/homesite/slubarticle/ClassicPremiumPlus/classicpremium.html.  The translucent colors on these guitars were hand-rubbed aniline dyed and would fade on the blue and green models.  You’ve probably seen a root beer colored top with a blue back on websites or on Youtube.  These didn’t leave the factory this way – these are in fact blue guitars that have fully faded to a brown top!  It’s extremely rare to see one of these guitars with any blue left of the top, but here’s one.  So, if you’re looking for a blue guitar from this series (or just a cool faded blue Les Paul), here’s your chance!   We   have includes a ton of photos with this one in different light settings so you can see  how the color looks so different in other lighting settings.
