Mine is in desert burst. I love it. The nut wasn't as smooth and is a tad sharp on one end, but that is the only problem I found with it. Pretty good for a Gibson. Of the LP in production today, the Traditional is the one I like the most.

Thanks for posting that. I have trouble figuring out how the various bursts really look (they all look the same in the catalogs). I was considering the goldtop, but that is one very nice guitar.

Ok looks great but I'm wondering how the Classic '57/Classic Plus sound compared to other Paul's? Sweeter Low output? clarity? PLEASE

Great buy! I recently picked up a desert burst and its a killer axe!
I played both standard and traditional. The traditional had a fuller sound than the standard, all the new features on the 08 standard didn't really live up to the traditional.

I can't really compare em but I think they sound/feel very nice. Really warm and responsive, the pots too. They drip with low output mojo but can do heavier/modern stuff fine too.

I've owned a bunch of LPs and the Traditional is the one that really captures what an LP really should sound like. I thought the burstbucker pros were too bassy and muddy, burstbucker 1 and 2 were decent, but not quite there, same with the 490/498, not quite as sweet. But when you play the Traditional with the 57s, all those great classic old school LP tones come jumping out. Sounds just like it's supposed to.
