    Aka “Victoria”.

    A couple trades removed from a White Falcon that wasn’t working for me, I just swapped a 60s LP standard and some cash for another Gibson.

    2020 Gibson Slash Goldtop. The other guy already removed the slash signature truss rod cover which saved me the 2 mins.

    The big 50s neck is different than my other Gibsons and after an hour plugged into my Marshall tonight I’m getting the hang of it.

    The new Custom Burstbucker pickups are slightly different than the SD AFDs on my other Slash model, but impossible to say which are “better”.

    All to say, this is a great sounding and spectacular looking guitar. As much as people criticize Gibson and Slash for releasing new models yearly, my only response is “haters gonna hate”

    I love a Goltop with naked pickups. Looks awesome!

    I've never spent any quality time with an LP. Wish I could rent one for a week or two to see what it's like. Those are a couple of beauties.

    Want to rent one?

    A gold top is definitely on my short list! I love the 50s necks, they feel like home to me.

    HNGD!

    It doesn’t look like you need the red one you can send it to me. I have 57’s which would fit in it just fine.
