    Nope, that’s not true, I don’t think you’ve ever compared a steel cover one to a nickel one. (edit: also not all alloys of stainless steel are magnetic!!). Here you go:

    WTB: Brazilian 2018 Gibson 1957 LP Goldtop (or a Historic Makeovers 1957 LP)

    Buying a Brazilian board, 2018 Gibson 1957 LP Goldtop. Interested in a Historic Makeovers 1957 LP as well (must have a brazzy board - so deluxe or RDS makeover). Prefer lightweight <9.0lb. Will pay a significant premium for <8.5lb. Thanks! Not interested in 2003 Brazilian goldtops. Thanks!

    update: over a year later, and I am still loving this thing.... thinking of 1) finding a brazzy 57' goldtop to put the 57' PAF's into and 2) putting another set of nickel cover original PAFs into this one (if I can find a pair).

    Thanks, yeah the HM team did a crazy good job. Even the back of the neck is checked as well and actually feels better/sticks less than a basic gloss. With that said, the TM-aged axes that I've had over the last several years have been pretty great too!

    Thanks :D I got lucky with the pair that I've got as they sound night and day different to any others that Ive tried before. Maybe it's the steel covers or idk... Maybe that's why George Gruhn said the pre-sticker, steel cover 57 LP PAF's were his favourite sounding as well. I think the biggest...

    Thanks! yep, got a 1959 bridge on the way. I played around with a bunch of caps, these sounded the best. If I ever come across any others might try them but it sounds perfect as is so not actively looking for more.

    NGD (kind of) - Pearly Gates HM RDS with ORIGINAL 1957 Les Paul PAFs (pre-sticker, steel covers!)

    Hey, thanks a lot first of all!! Gibson never did the makeover/used these dyes to my knowledge (maybe in some of Tom Murphy’s restoration work). The makeover was done by Historic Makeovers, the real deal series makeover I think was renamed to “Deluxe Makeover” on their website years ago. Kim and...

    I guess it's a matter of perspective :p And yes, I should've recorded the different pups. I've got some iphone recorded demos on IG but it doesnt do it justice
