  • Gold Tops - Yay or Nay

    Don't get me wrong I love my LP Standard (in lovely honeyburst) and IMHO I think the Les Paul is the best guitar in the world but I just don't like gold tops - am I mad ?

        Nay. Doesnt like yellow bodies. On its ok as part of a sunburst finish. But no appeal to me at all for yellow by itself as guitars color.

            Absolutely. I love goldtops . . . only trouble is, budget goldtops often neglect to put a maple cap on (because nobody sees it). Then all you've got is a yellow guitar.

              Yay to green tinted gold tops. The (rare) fully gold painted LPs otoh look cheap for some reason

                    I hated goldtops when I was younger. Somewhere in my mid-20s, something happened and now I love the look.

                    And some cover tunes...

                      I've always thought the ES295 was pretty darn sexy as well.

                        I used to dislike them, now I want one.
