    My Dream come True!

    I want to thank Josh and Sweetwater. They have always been there to assist in any way possible.

    First of, the packaging was excellent. It arrived perfectly, without a blemish.

    The guitar is the one I always dream about. Nothing beats a Les Paul Standard Gold Top. This one has everything that I always wanted in a guitar.

    Great neck, easy to fret and very smooth. The body is just what I expect of a guitar, a bit heavier, but very comfortable. The Gold Top finish is off the charts, and it really shows under the lights.

    The Burstbucker pickups are just awesome. The sound is very clean on all three settings, even when using heavy distortion.

    But the most innovative addition to this model, is the Grover locking tuners system. I can change strings in a matter of minutes, and when they are lock, they are locked. No need for endless wraps.

    I just love this Les Paul Standard, is the best of both worlds, the old with all the new technology.

    I know they are many "look alike " models on the market, but if you want the real deal, don't go any further. Contact Josh at Sweetwater and get this "sweet" guitar, you won't regret it.

    Gibson Les Paul Gold Top

    Looks great, feels great, and of course, more importantly, it sounds great. The string locks were a great surprise. And as always, Sweetwater comes through with fantastic customer service.

    The Most Beautiful Guitar

    I always wanted to own a Gibson Les Paul Gold Top and I got my wish. With the help of Josh at Sweetwater, I received my dream

    It is just perfect! The sound is awesome and the construction is just what I expected from Gibson U.S.A. It is beautiful in every detail.

    I'll be rocking with it for years to come! Thanks to Josh at Sweetwater!

    Tone freak. Guitar hack

    Being a huge fan of Les Paul's I may be a bit biased. So pause with caution.
    I have owned many guitars in my day. Any brand you name it.. Now all I have are Les Paul's. I have three..
    A custom silverburst. A signature T and this nice 2013 goldtop. It would be safe to say that I play this Goldie more than the others.
    The new asymetric neck is very nice. Easy.... Easy to play. Set up at sweetwater is excellent. Perfect intonation and 0 fret buzz.
    You can achieve some great split coil sounds as well. The out of phase push pull pot is a great help with that. The pups are nice and I am leaving them in. The tone of the guitar is full tilt Les Paul. Screaming leads. Mellow jazz.. Cool Guitar.
    It is pricy but worth it if you love guitar.
    I know all about the troubles with past guitars from Gibson. I've had one or two with subpar quality controll. I believe they have raised the bar now. This guitar is awesome.
    I am saving for another 2013 standard.
    Ask for Forrest Powell. He has helped me for years.
