    I love LP gold tops and I love my 2007 LP Classic so here it is:

    My only mods wre a pair of Gibson 57 Classics and a set of Schaller strap locks. The newer inlays are not bad at all.

    I've always loved GT's. This was my 56. The romance just didn't work out because I play humbucker LP's and converting meant more than just routing but also moving the neck PU position away from the bridge.

    Does anyone have a VOS '57RI? I played one the other day and I was really surprised. The neck was actually beefier than the R8 they had there?? I thought it was the other way around.

    Regardless, I think I'm saving my pennies for that one.

    I have a gloss R7 and it is spectacular too, like the Tokai.

    Not what most think right off the bat when you speak of goldtop.;) Pull tone pot splits the coils.

    Sean, I thought you were crazy when you had the R0 refinned but I love the look. I especially love the aged hardware-who did the aging? The reflectors look terrific with a Gold Top. I may have to follow in your footsteps soon.
