    When I bought my dreamguitar last year, I tested about 10 high end les Paul's with prizes to above 10 k! Finally I decided for a true historic and I love that guitar. It sounded and played best for my needs, and it was not the most expensive one...

    So get the true !!!

    I've played several True Historic Les Paul's (57 custom, 57 Gold top, 59 standard) and compared them to a recent standard 57 historic gold top (all guitars had custom bucker ALNICO III PU). The True Historic's sounded brighter than the standard 57 Historic. Whats the difference? All Hyde glue construction on the TH, where as the standard Historic uses Hyde glue for the neck to body joint and Tight-bond for the top to body joint...
