    (New Gold Top Day)

    Back in the 90s I had a Supersuckers CD with a song on it called "Gold Top". I thought to myself, "Self, one day I'd sure like to have a Gold Top".



    Unfortunately for my Golden dreams, my income had more important commitments such as supporting a wife and some kids.

    Well now 24 years later I got it. I was seriously considering a Historic '57 as it had a nicer fingerboard and was pretty light. However, the playability, bigger frets and P90s on the Classic were more to my preference.

    Gibson QC was about 99% on this beauty. The neck P90 didn't want to sit level but a piece of foam took care of that. Otherwise it's just perfect.

    Those who caste aspersions on Gibson and publicly call for its demise still want a gold top with P-90s.

    Congratulations! Nothing else comes close to a LPGT with P-90’s. I know you’re gonna enjoy that one, it’s gorgeous.
