    I like the plaintops a lot. (especially the Tobacco and Honey bursts! But, then again...maybe I like 'em so much because I can't have one in a lefthanded model! :laugh2: )

    On Sweetwater the lefty Standard +'s are listed for less than the righty Standard +'s. That's pretty unusual right?

    Nope the HCS. The price is actually still more than most of the other music websites have the righty standard plus listed for but less than sweetwater does. When I ordered my boyfriend's guitar from them I got it price matched. I guess price matching wouldn't help in this case.

    Edit: Same goes for the Ebony Standard but I was referring to the HCS.

    Thanks, Northlight. It's kind of a beater in person. (although it inadvertantly got all the same stuff that '59 one has that they're sellin...sans the long tenon and baseball bat neck. :D )

    I used to love plus tops but there are too many of them and on time I ended up preferring plain tops, I feel they are more authentic, with more presence or something like that. By the way, in Mexico plain tops are more expensive than plus tops, I don't know why.

    Here's a pic of my VSPT:
