Howdy. I got my first Les Paul in 1974 - a used 1972 Custom Black Beauty. My oldest son made off with it a couple of years ago so it's still in the family, just not at my house. I played through the early 80s and then life got in the way. Now that I'm semi-retired, I've taken up guitar again. Since the '72 lives in Atlanta now, I found a couple of others to replace it. I first got a 2010 Studio that someone had put a decal and metallic lacquer on. Still debating on what to do with it but the price was a steal. Just yesterday I picked up a 2018 Les Paul Goldtop Tribute. It has the same slim neck as my '72 did so it's more familiar/comfortable to me. But I'm wondering what year this is a tribute to. Any ideas? Anyway, thanks for letting me join the forum. I look forward to learning a lot and contributing what I can.
