My new(used) Les Paul Studio Alpine White with an Ebony fretboard. I got from Guitar Center to replace the fucked up Silvertone I took back.

This guitar is pretty much mint except for some little pink stains on the back of the neck. I have read that this caused by "grain filler" bleeding through the nitro(?). Maybe that is why the guitar was only $549.

Newer finishes from the early '00s and up wouldn't do that grain filler thing, and the mark on your neck screams two much more common scenarios to me:

Rubber guitar stand reacting with the topcoat (specifically the placement and shape of the mark on your guitar has me leaning harder in this direction)

-or-

Guitar placed in tan/pink case at the factory after a fresh finish was applied (this became common with the faster production of white Gibsons in the '00s which is why they started coming with black cases and a mix of black/grey/white lining).

This is what the case damage usually looked like:

Thanks Paul. It must be from a rubber guitar stand because my guitar is a 2011 and came in the case with a white lining.

Yeah, 2011 unlikely to be case damage then... nice ebony board though, by 2011 I think only the white ones came with it.

Sexy guitar. Dave Grohl made Alpine/Gold my original fave colour scheme for Gibbos in the mid '90s, he only had an SG and LP and both were white customs.

Yes that's a special one, I made my only white Les Paul (Korean Epi Custom) out like that same guitar but with Dimarzios, and more due to Sylvain Sylvain. It's actually a lot more aged and off-white in person and all the gold has worn off or been replaced.
