I remember the plain tops were the standard for all Les Pauls in the 70's and 80's. Hamer, Dean and others introduced mahogany body builds with flamed maple tops. Gibson had to chase flamed maple tops to stay alive. Recently, I saw a plain top deep cherry burst at a GC and it was by far the best looking LP of them all!

So many gorgeous plain tops in this thread.

I used to prefer them over flame, but I will confess the forum has corrupted me.

Altlthough I do tend to prefer more subtle flame vs monster tops.
