    I love goldtops, but I don't dig black humbuckers in the mix. Cream or chrome if at all possible. Zebra is acceptable.

    I love goldtops as well, and that's a good one.... nice dark board too. The color pickup is a personal choice. I happen to like nickel covers or cream, but there isn't a thing wrong with yours as is.

    I was hell bent on creams for this one but Iím oddly content with her as she is. Iím afraid to lose the current tone.

    Looks really nice. I have had 2 goldtop les pauls over the years. My first "real" guitar i bought was a 1974 Les Paul Deluxe i bought in 1992 for $350. It was beat to ****, but i played it for about 8 years. I put cream p-90's in it and it sounded great. It needed way too much work so I sold it.

    In 1996, i bought a 1995 LP Classic goldtop for $1000. Never cared for the pickups in it (at least in that guitar-I have a 500T in a LP Custom and it sounds amazing!), so i ended up selling it to a family friend in 1998.
    Charvel, Kramer, Gibson, Fender, MIJ/US Epiphone, Ibanez
    Full Shred, Distortion, JB, Custom (Custom), Screamin' Demon, Lil' Screamin' Demon, Nazgul, Cool Rails, Alternative 8, Mini Humbucker, Lil 59, 59, APH-1, Black Winter, Silverbird, SP90, PATB1, PATB3, YJM, 59/custom hybrid, SSL-1 AH1BJ, Jazz

    I wouldn't change a damn thing, especially if you love the tone. It's a damn fine looking goldtop. Now that I've got a Les Paul in the stable again, I've got gold top fever in a bad way..... and you're not helping, lol.

    I wanted a GT for almost 40 years, even when they werenít cool. Now I have one and sheís my favorite guitar by a long shot. Amazingly comfortable now, the factory setup was ****, but thatís what you get for a grand these days.

    It's true - tone beats looks any day. Otherwise, no one would play Telecasters.
