I agree mostly but..Serious question. So what’s the deal? Many people get a more than a little misty eyed over gold top Les Pauls. Like there is some magic in the gold paint that makes them better than other LPs. I get the rarity of the early ones but this seems to spill over into modern LPs too. It just not a color that intrigues me, in fact I think they are kinda ugly. Is it something else or just nostalgia?
Minefield? LolYou gotta admit your thread title was asking for trouble on a forum full of people who own expensive collectibles like this. Look how many rolled out their gold top photos. Oops! It's like walking into a minefield!
I have no skin in the game so the thread title didn't bother me. But I was curious about the same question so I kept reading. Maybe if you started with that, instead of a title with the word "hate" in it?
