Picked this beauty up today. Had seriously been contemplating buying an an aged R7 but this brand new GT was offered to me at virtually second hand price as it had been lent out for a show by a touring band but never used. I never really got what goldtops were about (visually) when I was younger but absolutely love them now. Thick fat buttery tones, amazing sustain and resonance, flawless setup and finish. I really like the BB 1&2's I may leave them in. Broke her in back home playing led zep and some ABB through a plexi marshall, then some relaxed jazzy vibes through a BF princeton reverb. Outstanding.
