Absolutely agree!! Budget allowing, that's gotta be my next guitar.
In fact, I'm still thinking of selling the '14 premium quilt Standard to fund this...

:hmm:

Your guitar looks very nice. I'm seriously considering one of these instead of a R6. Wish I could make up my mind one way or the other. I haven't found one of the 2019 50s P90s to play in person though, and that's annoying. I have owned three R6s in the past and know what I'd get there. How do you think they stack up given that you actually have one?

i had an R6 & R7 in the early 2000's. I liked them but the necks on those at that time, or at least the ones i had, were pretty hefty. In time they both found new homes and i've always wanted another GT.

Of the Original Series, which i've already said i think is a great move for Gibson, the gold tops are the most appealing for me because the grade of maple isn't in play. I'm not sure what i would have gained by buying another R6 other than some snob rights and maybe a bit lighter guitar, or a little different color of gold. For a guitar at nearly half the price i'm very happy. Mine, like all of them of course, has been pleked and the feel right out of the box is just as i would hope for. The work is clean - it does have a two piece back although i'm not they all do, either way it doesn't bother me at the price point, under 2K.

hope this helps some of if you make a decision either way i'd love to see you new GT!

Gold top les Paul’s are the most beautiful piece of musical art on the planet...and it’s not even close imho

congrats and welcome to the gold club

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE gold tops. Agree they are stunning! That said, I prefer a good burst as art because each one is so drastically unique, where gold tops (and I love them!!!) are 'same-ie'. Beautifully same-ie, but still..... :)

Congrats on the new guitar! Awesome!

2019 Original Collection P90 GT...purchased and shipped for under 2K..clean with no issues, pleked, 59ish neck, 9.5lbs and most of all sounds terrific. I'm call this series a big win for Gibson.

That is one perfect picture! A wall-hanger!
