    Hello, I've seen a couple Red Top 57 Les Paul Reissues and would love to know more. Are they currently available? Limited edition? VOS? Any details would be helpful (including where to get one if you know of one). Thanks!

    I think that might be similar to the black top R7s that were a limited run. I had one that I got from Daves Guitars. You might shoot them an email and ask. I seem to remember them having red at the same time as black. This was ~2-3 years ago...

    I owned a red Top Dickey betts LP for a While. Had a belly cut. It was cool but didn't do it for me. I just think that LP's don't do it for me in general becuase that was a good one.

    Did you change the pickguard? All of the '62 reissues I've seen have a really green guard. Nice axe!

    And just to let the OP know, I have no idea about red top 57 reissues. Sorry. :p
