    Default New guitar day!!! Had to have it. Gibson 50's Goldtop

    I found myself in Sam Ash holding the new 50's Les Paul and I knew it had to be mine. I just love it. So, gone is my 2012 Les Paul Standard. The 2012 was a great guitar but this is just a better fit for me. The fat neck feels like it was made for my hands. No push/ pull knobs that never got touched, no circuit board making pickup swaps a headache. No weight relief chambers, this is a heavy mutha. I cant pull a bad tone out of it. I dont want to put it down. I know this is a Seymour Duncan forum but I dont even see myself swapping the pickups. The Burstbuckers sound great in this guitar.Click image for larger version.

    That thing is beautiful! Congratulations.

    Funny you mention the push-pulls for splitting.
    I've always thought of them as a plus, then proceed to never ever use them.

    My Epi LP with both pickups split in the middle does have a beautiful clean sound... that I never use.

    When the guitar speaks to you - listen and have no regrets.

    Didn't buy that from Danny in Clearwater, did you?

    Congratulations, that’s sweet. I like the bigger necks also. I have a 50’s Tribute Gold Top that was as close to your guitar that I can afford. Enjoy, you got a keeper!

    No. I love that Clearwater store but I bought this at the Tampa location.

    Well done! When a guitar demands that you take it home, you must obey. Now play the heck out of that heavy thang!
