Comments about Gibson Custom 1954 Les Paul Goldtop VOS Electric Guitar:
This guitar is awesome!! I have a 54 goldtop s/n 4-5072 which I got at G.C. Fountain Valley ( bless you Nairo and Jeff!) I use this guitar in church and for playing blues and c/w. I used to have a 68 /69 goldtop Deluxe which I very much miss, but this is a very good quality axe. visually stunning with the finish and p/u's. Plays better than it looks, cool vintage case with cert of authenticity and all the goodies. I use this with a Fender Hot Rod Delux lacquered tweed with a Jensen p-12n Alinico 50 watt speaker also purchased at G.C. Fountain Valley ( Thanks again guys!!) The guitar is set up very well, the .010 strings are good, as I use a slide and open tunings. I have had this guitar about 6 months and the only thing I have done is to get a strap lock for obvious reasons. It has killer tone with my amp, with the p/u's they just rip. they have a good bite to them cranked they spank and down low they are very sweet. When I had my Deluxe I loved the sound from it. I also had a Les Paul standard but did not like the sound too much and was looking for something else. The weight and feel is very good. I like the wrap around strings as I use my hand for damping. With the effects I use (Line 6 Eco Park, Ibanez TS9DX,CS3,MT-2,volume pedal) I feel this is an awesome setup for what I do. Anyone else who does similar music will be very impressed. The guitar is very responsive to your touch and does not seem to "fight" you as you try to play it. Also the look with the guitar and amp is great too!...(is that why I got it?) but either way, I am blessed to have this set up and highly recomend it. Once again thanx to Nairo and Jay who were very helpful and not pushy(great demo by Jay when he cranked the amp and guitar....SOLD.
