I have had this guitar since June this year and it is all I hoped for. It has a great feel and response, I can go metal or just Blues and it sounds great. Excellent bit of work and georgous look I ahve always wanted a Gold Top and this just dosent dissapoint.
I just received my Goldtop Les Paul Deluxe today, and I have to say it is even better than I had hoped. It weighs a little less than my '87 Les Paul Standard, has a 60's slim neck taper, and is quite a sight to behold - the fit and finish are perfect. The vintage gold finish, the body, neck and headstock binding, absolutely perfect. I justified adding this to my arsenal because of the mini-humbuckers, and they didn't disappoint. They are brighter than a full humbucker, somewhere between a humbucker and a P-90. The action was a little off, I had some buzzing but I am a tech and I set it up fine. There were only 400 of these made, so collectors may snap them up... but this guitar screams to be played. Definitely a must-have, Custom Shop quality at Standard prices.
I just bought this guitar for my son and he can't put it down. After a gig one morning I brought it home for him after using it on stage the night before and i had a hard time giving it up. Everything about this guitar is great.Thanks.
The last time I saw a Gold Top Les Paul was in the 8th Street Music Store in Greenich Village the day after seeing Mike Bloomfield playing with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band (God am I Old!). I wanted it back then, but hey, $800 in 1966 was way too much for me, so I dreamed on.Now I've got a piece of history with the Les Paul Antique Gold Top. Who cares what year it emulates, and if it's the original. Certainly not I I only ever wanted my dream guitar, and this is the one. It has the narrow neck of the 60's (my hands are just too big to be pressing on strings so far apart from each other), the gold top, the engineering of Gibson (sorry, I don't like the quality of Epiphone. I've always owned Gibson...335, Hummingbird), everything was there that I wanted. It plays like a dream...my dream. So if you think it's too much, just remember what I saw in 1966, and oh, by the way, that Les Paul is worth no less than $10k, so protect your investment, and if you don't think you're young enough for a band anymore, and don't want to play guitar anymore, you have an instrument that will pay you back kindly when you give up the dream. Me, I'm still dreaming.
I?ve had my Gibson Gold Top LP Deluxe for a couple years now and it is a wonderful guitar. I gig with this guitar all the time and it is great. I can play hard and this guitar takes it. It sounds awesome through my Marshall TSL100.When I first got it though, I broke a lot of strings. Easy fix, I replaced the string saddles with string saver graphite saddles and no more broken strings.Also, when it first arrived it had a broken knob. Upon request, Gibson shipped me a replacement knob.
