    Post your historic goldtops!

    For me a "Goldtop" is the magic sound of the "P90"!!! :cool: So only "52-54-56". I don't like the "52" aesthetically because of their tailpiece. My future purchase should be a "56" but the slightly 'olive' colours of the recent models seem to be moving away from the original models so see...

    Incoming CR6

    Not frequent this R6....:) Psychologically an R6 is 'Goldtop' (with all the variants of gold, green gold and so on, with its share of supporters who only see the historically correct) However it is beautiful with that flamed top :thumbs:

    Beauty of the burst book

    Very good warning ....:thumbs: I have also bought many books that arrived damaged (corroded corners, ridiculous packaging ....). The returns are not always possible, the justifications towards indelicate salesmen...a fight !!! Always a little anxiety on receipt of the package!

    I prefer a "55" with ABR than a "54" with WRAP. But ... as with everything ... to each his taste. :)

    A "p90 staple" in neck is mandatory!!!:cool: I'm not sure if Gibson since 2010 has released this model ??? (except in 2019 for the Japanese market) Let's hope for an Anniversary model in 2024 or 2025.... at a reasonable price ...we can always dream !!!...:run:
