1971-72 Les Paul Goldtop

Postby steveo on Wed Nov 27, 2002 9:01 pm

Hi All,

Though I don't have 100 posts yet, Vic gave me permission to post my Goldtop for sale here.

The short of the story is the last buyer flaked out on me, so it's back up for sale.

This is a '71 or '72 Les Paul Goldtop deluxe. I spoke with George Gruhn on the dating and he said it's hard to tell on early 70's Gibson's. It was routed for humbuckers long before I bought it, but the good news is I put some late 60's Patent # PAF's in it that were purchased from Randy Peterson up here in the Seattle area. They are matched up nicely and have a lot of muscle to them. The guitar itself is amazing in playability and tone. It was refretted by Mike Lull who did a fabulous job. As you can tell from the pix, it has heavy checking on the finish, but no structural problems whatsoever.

I'm cleaning out my collection now and this one has to go. I'm selling it for $1500. If you're interested, let me know and we can work out the details.

Thanks for checking it out.

Steve

I can vouch for Mike Lull's fretwork- my 1980 Howard Roberts was refretted by Mike, and the
work is superb. Better than Gibson by far, and easily on par with PRS, or others of that caliber.

Hey Nate,

Yep. I'll delete the topic now. As for the new purchase, it's gonna be a Coyote and 2x12 (blue and 30) cab. I can't wait!

SuperChop, do you have a home studio or do you record at a regular studio?

BigJames,

I have a studio at my home that I record in. After putting together a nice set of vintage and modern gear, mics and a Pro Tools setup (yep, I sold my 2", 24 track), it was just a natural progression to do the work in a comfortable environment.
