    That's correct. I've got a '94 Korean Epi Goldtop with the Gibson plate.

    Well, here she is. G-orgious !!!

    As usual, the pics on the site didn't come close to doing the plaintop justice. The finish is so much more subtle, in person. This one is lemon burst. Non weight relieved, coming in at 9.2 pounds. What they call a "late 50's" neck profile. I expected something like the pattern regular on my old S2 Mira, but his is definitely a C, not a U or whatnot. It's a nice size, though, and fits my hand well. On to the pics!

    It's hard to catch with a camera, but she's got a very nice speckle in the grain, falling short of true birds eye, but enough to see easily in person. My baby has freckles!

    The back had a bit of noticeable ribbon in the site, so that was expected, I like that it's wavy in its look.

    Needless to say, I'm a pretty happy boy. This is my first Gibson, so it'll be fun exploring. I don't even have a name for her, yet.

    Cool combo (LP & Fender Bassbreaker), very nice! Tried one of these amps a month or so ago, right after I traded in my Vox AC15 (& Marshall Studio 15, I know, but it had too many faults for what I need) for a vintage Super Reverb; this little amp gets that supberb smoky crunch (SRV-ish), I was floored. Definitely on my future to-buy list. Beautiful bursts on this page, that plaintop looks lovely too. This topic is a sight for sore eyes :)

    I guess I'm in the club. 2014 Traditional Goldtop with a convertible Bigsby. I need to get used to all the knobs and the weight, but dang-nation it sounds good through a Princeton Reverb!

    2015 Classic "Rock II" and 1998 Special SL.

    I'll probably sell both of them, as I find Fenders play more to my liking.

    I sold a couple of the slab LPs, and bought this sweet treat last weekend:

    My 2016 Les Paul Studio in Satin Fireburst. Sounds awesome through the Traynor!

    I just traded my 2012 VOS R7 (even) for
    A 2006 gloss LPB-4 with factory Bigsby.
    I love the Alnico V neck pickup and Bigsby.
    The bridge P90 will be replaced with another Alnico V ASAP.

    IMG_0921.JPG I got a traditional with a plain top a few months ago. It has the larger neck profile. I don't know what pickup Gibson put in the bridge but it is hot, maybe too hot. Overall it's a great guitar.

    image.jpeg image.jpeg I just added another Les Paul to my toolbox!
    It's a nice 2008 R6 1956 gloss gold top.
    The previous owner put different P90s in it.
    I can't recall whether they are Lollars or Fralins.
    I took the pickguard off it, pickguards bug me on Les Pauls.
    They can dig into the top, and I just think they look cooler without em'.
    Here it is, posing with my other recent acquisition, a 2006 1954 Custom reissue with factory Bigsby.
    Both are heavy, both look great.
    I changed the bridge on the 54, but I may put the ABR1 back on.
    The Bibsby still need a little finessing, there is a pretty steep break angle behind the bridge and it doesn't work smoothly enough.
    Love the Alnico V on the 54.
    I'm not a P90 fan, so I foresee an additional Alnico V for the bridge of the 54, and either a pair of Alnico Vs, or mini humbuckers for the 56.
    Blasphemy to some, I know.
    I really like Alnico Vs, minis, and Firebird minis.
    Love Les Pauls!

    Wow, BB, you're on a roll here with the Historics! Gorgeous guitars, both of 'em. Gibson does such a nice job with these...

    Ya know, I've never played the A5 Staples pickups. l think I'll add this to my list :). I'm not a P90 fan either, though I do have 'em in my 330... Hmm, I guess that's where I'd shove the A5s, eh?

    Minis are nice and snarly, too. Can't go wrong, either way.

    So, where are you shopping for the Alnico V pickups? Looks like SD and Lollar each have one, but they don't look quite like yours...

    I'm probably going to put another Gibson in the 54.
    Gibson minis for the 56, or Duncan Antiquity Firebirds.
    I had the Antiquities in a Vox Virage a few years ago.
    I do feel lucky to have the Historics!
    I traded my 2012 VOS R7 even for the 54.
    I recently sold my great sounding, but narrow necked 75 Guild Starfire IV, and used the $ to buy the gold top.

    Hey, you don't need to justify any expenses here! I'm sitting on a bit of guitar cash at the moment, having sold a few things recently. Kind of a nice feeling.
