    Thank you guys for your feedback. It will stay a Blacktop...at least for now. Who knows i maybe try some time to repair the damage and burst it. And if i dont like it i´ll turn it back in black. But for now i fell in love with the black top again.

    i do really love blacktops but also well aged 50´s goldtops. and thats a problem, a refin would never be an aged 50´s gold finish..

    I see already most folks like the Blacktop. I love it as well! The thing is, a Blacktop is good as a second LP. This one is my Nr.1. I just love it, the tone, the feel, the weight (7.9 lbs). Everything is perfect to me. And i wish as my Nr.1 a burst. I had a dozen LP´s over the years and this...

    Also i really dig the Top. It has everything i like. Nice not too distinct flames, the all seeing eye, grain and mineral streaks. Nice mineral streaks The maple is on those pics totaly dry. Here you can get an idea of how it would look like if you see the areas where the glue is

    Refin 1955 Gibson Les Paul - To Do It or Not?

    Hi guys, i restored a wreck 1955 Les Paul. I went for a Blacktop since i always liked Blacktops. But i started to think of a refin. Not sure yet, just a thought. One option is back to the roots, so Goldtop. The other a Burst refin (dirty lemon). In this case there is some work to be done on the...

    To Anyone Who Has Played a Vintage Les Paul

    Hell yes! The good ones are imo "better" than new ones. But i´ve played a few reissues which killed many old ones. All in all imo the 50ies ones are "better" in many ways, plus you have that indescribable feeling of playing the real deal which inspires you to play.
