There are so many options, Tokai, Burny, Edwards , Orville. I like them all. Just have to wait for the right deal.

I think they hold up quite well to the other 80s guitar brands from Japan.
Granted Aria never really had LPC models that could compare to the absolute top end of Greco & Tokai.

I do like them though and they can generally be had for less than a comparable Greco/Tokai/Burny/Orville simply because Aria never got the same recognition (don't ask me why).
But that doesn't mean it's an inferior guitar.

Just doing some research now. Looking a deal. Gold top is my first choice.

You will not find a gold top LP Custom from Aria, at least not a MIJ one.
Not even sure I've ever seen any gold top LPC :dunno:

A gold top custom will be tough to find.
The MIJ stuff is pretty much a mirror of what Gibson did and I don`t recall Gibson ever having a gold top custom back then.
Maybe a standard type or maybe you want to get a beater and refin it?

If I have to, I will settle for a Brown burst. But I'd rather the GT. Might have to go for the Orville or Tokai.

What are the necks like on these Aria Pros?
95% of them are typical slim 60's profiles.

At the risk of speaking out of turn,I believe he's looking for a good "Goldtop"..Not a "Goldtop Custom".
That's what I think as well, but OP specifically said LPC, so that's what I'm basing my replies on.
If it is a LP Standard he wants, then there's a lot of options all of a sudden.

Yes, Goldtop. I would also take brown burst if it looks and plays good. I see a couple of Orville’s that I like. BTW, how are you Bob?

Yes that much is clear. But you specifically said LPC in your inital post.
LPC = Les Paul Custom.

A gold top LP Custom is not an easy find. Gibson did one in the 70s and I think I've seen one or two copies, but the brand eludes me.
But if you want a gold top Les Paul Standard then there's a lot of options, even Aria(although only with P90).
