    This is a lovely guitar, great sounds and action, about twenty five years old now, I used to gig with this.

    Here's what it sounds like through an AC30 handwired, (My Backing Track)

    I have a ‘92 Bullion Gold version-gold top, neck, back and sides. Replaced the pickups and electronics to unpotted PAF style pickups and ‘50s style wiring. Plays and sounds great. Has that Lester grunt and whine.

    That sounds fantastic!

    I have an LP Classic from 1996 in CSB with Duncan Pearly Gates pickups. I gigged with this one for a few years and it's still in great shape. It's a tone beast:

    Sounds monster.

    That's a real beauty.

    Love that track you posted.

    It's got that nice bite and growl that those original pickups have.

    I've got the basically the same guitar, but mine is a Classic Premium Plus.

    I love the neck, and the pickups. A LOT of guys pull them out and replace them.

    The secret to these pickups, is rolling back the volume. The clean up and are very clear sounding pickups.

    Here's a few pics of my '00 Amber Premium Plus:
