For all those Lespaulists out there... Do you prefer Plaintop or Flametop?
I own 7 Les Pauls--3 flame, 4 plain. The best of the lot is a '60 Custom Shop Plaintop RI. Perfect weight, great neck, VOS finish, amazing balance in the tone. It's rich and thick, but the BB2 in the neck has plenty of bite and top end. I bought two of them based on aesthetics, but I'm over that now. I've learned exactly what I like in an LP, and it has little to do with looks.
Price and other features have governed my LP purchasing habits. I own 15 Gibson Les Pauls and only 2 have flamed tops. Although one of them is hands down my best Les Paul.
