    Great guitar! I managed to get my hands on a 2016 Studio Faded, one of the best years for the Studios in quite some time.Your gold top looks fantastic. Congrats!

    Good to know! Not that I'm terribly concerned long term, but I did wonder. Good point on the finish not being a fingerprint magnet. I'm usually pretty gentle on guitars, so I should be good to go.

    On a side note, I called GC yesterday because I was really curious about the strings. They have colored ends and are definitely not 9's (based on tension and tender fingers). Main reason for calling was because it sounds so good I don't want to change anything when I eventually restring it. My luck, he says they usually restring (if they need to) with NYXL's. Need to start looking for some sales, because those things aren't cheap.

    Picked this up last night at a GC Grand opening, when they do a new store they pull in price drops from other locations to create the "Used Wall". I knew the sales guy from another store, & he matched the cheapest one they had on line.. 2002 Faded Ebony, plays like butter.. LP Black.jpg

    I like it so much, when I just went to Like the opening post I saw that I had already liked it.

    Congrats. I really like gold tops. I picked up a Bonamassa studio about 6 years ago with the gold top and black back. Really love that thing. I went with 11's and with the shorter scale, it feels like having 10's on a Tele.
