So very true indeed, but they up the price for a more premium top and the top is not more premium right now.I agree. I love Gibson but I think most people who are in the market for les Paul are concerned more about how the guitar plays rather than be concerned about AA or AAA top. I mean AA or AAA tops are cool. I see how some can go for that….
for sure. this top was so different and unique, I couldn't say no. Never seen one before or since like this. Luckily it plays and sounds just as killer.Yep, when you see a super nice top, you just want to buy it right away because it may be the last really nice one for a while.
Yeah their pictures look overblown and too bright. You honestly would have a better picture of the guitar if the lights weren’t too brightNever judge the intensity and quality of the flame based on a Sweetwater photo. I tell my engineer every time we talk that they need to get a better location and lighting setup for photos. I make him go take pics of the tops with his cell phone to get a better idea of how they actually look.
There lighting is truly atrocious.
Wow that is a nice top. Aaaaaaaaaand...its gone.Here is a nice AAA Sweetwater Standard 60's Exclusive and it is only 9lbs with a beautiful top.

Yeah, I remember earlier on in the pandemic (before the price increase) I saw this incredible topped LP (lemonburst if I remember) over at Wildwood's site, as in, good enough that I saw other people on here commenting on that very same guitar, it was noticeably better than all their other LPs, even among the 'hand selected top' guitars. I was half-tempted to get it, just to keep it for resale eventually since I knew it would hold its value, but alas, I'm a lefty and it didn't really make and sense so I decided against it. Right after that it was snapped up by someone, and I really hoped that I would one day see it again as a NGD post on this forum. Maybe someone will find this forum and post it in one of the lemonburst threads we've got.Yep, I thought it was a really nice top, very sweet. Also, a nice light 9lbs, which some lucky person got it. I hope it is setup well.
