Just placed an order for a brand spankin' new Les Paul Traditional, Gold Top, or course! Played a few for the past few weeks at various guitar stores around Phoenix, and absolutely love the neck and pickups. It's funny, when I first started playing guitar, I liked "new" style tones, active pickups, modern high gain amps, etc. But ever since I got my Tele, which sports '62 reissue pups, I've discovered a huge love for the subtleties that you an get out of a low-med output pickup, and the tonal variations available through the tone and volume knobs. Now, 'scuse me while I pace relentlessly, waiting for delivery.
