I'm thinking about getting a 1968 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop. Ever since I got a real 1965 Strat I've wondered if the same magic is in the Les Pauls. I know they hold their value, so that's a plus, but I'll be playing and gigging one if I get it. I owned many great strats, Masterbuilts, etc., but my 1965 is SO much better as far as the tone. I'm mainly interested in the tone of the Les Paul. I like P90 pickups and I have some great sounding humbucker guitars, a couple Gustavssons and a killer Collings I35 LC, so I have that sound covered. Anyway, let me know what you think!
