after endless searching, I decided to just take the plunge and purchase the guitar Ive been having my eye on. The Tribute came first and really opened my eyes to the world of les pauls and really piqued my obsession with goldtops. I love the tribute but desperately wanted a 50s style neck so lo and behold, I purchased a new LP Standard (Goldie Hawn). I was going to return or sell Kate Hudson (Tribute) but cant bring myself to do it. Its got the mojo! And it sounds so damn good, even unplugged. I guess Im gonna be one of those crazy cat ladies but with goldtop les pauls

So its my pleasure to introduce to you, Kate Hudson and Goldie Hawn.

So glad they changed the headstock. I have both types and the Goldie Hawn headstock Is sweeter looking imo.

Congrats! So, any feedback to share when you play them back to back? Which would you “double cream”?

unplugged, the tribute seems to have better resonance, which may be due to the satin/lack of lacquer. Plugged, the 50s standard is just so damn smooth. I prefer the burstbucker pups to the 490/498 but the 2 guitars sound totally different to me which is how Im justifying keeping both. My hands much prefer the thick 50s neck as opposed to the tributes slim taper. The tribute weighs 8.2lbs, the 50s standard is 9.6lbs

the 50s standards' fit and finish is so far beyond the tributes but given the price points of each, one would certainly hope so. If i had to keep one, itd be the 50s standard, no 2nd thoughts

Is that a 2018 Tribute? If so, I had that one. I liked it, but when I got my Standard I forgot all about it.

Gold is gold dude !!
Goldtop has been always my passion for Les Pauls.. took me more than 25 years to have one.. even the Plaintop R8 I purchased in 2016 didn’t tame the passion for a goldtop.. finally I got one last year.. 2010 Traditional

I would not double cream. I would go double uncovered, black. Nothing like a nice GT with uncovered black pickups!

I don't need another guitar, I don't need another guitar, I don't need another guitar, I don't need another guitar....
