    Went to see Whitesnake this past Thursday and watched Doug Aldrich shred the hell out of a Les Paul gold top. He put Reb Beach to shame, and that's no easy task. :shock:

    Anyway, does anyone know what model gold top he's using? This is the exact one here:

    He used to always play a flame top one as well, theres a wicked youtube vid of him playing it. Shame his website gear section isn't updated.

    I thought the R7 GTs were all darkbacks? This one definitely is not.

    I saw him a few weeks ago doing a 'Masterclass' at a music shop here in the UK. Awesome player, and a really nice funny guy too... Was a great evening. He had the gold top there too.

    Saw the Snakes twice in 2009 (and one show back in 1988), great concerts. Aldrich rocks!

    I hate when they remove the nibs when they refret.


    Doug tears it up on Dio's Live DVD. His solo kicks ass.
