    Got this about 2 weeks ago.. been busy with the passing of my step dad so I hadn't posted.
    My friend had this guitar in to do a neck repair. I picked it up and it just felt so nice in my hands. Great neck profile. He did the repair and gave me an awesome deal. So I have a gold top now.
    It's a Epiphone Les Paul limited edition that was only sold through GC from what I have read. It came stock with coil split push/pull pots. The pickups a Alnico II zebra humbuckers. It's all stock and I just love how it feels and sounds.

    That is a beautiful Goldtop right there ! It must be a great one, if you judge by neck wear. Fat C section on that ?

    I'm looking for its P90 sibling.

    Thanks Everyone... It has been a tough year for allot of us here.
    @DrBeGood I'm not sure on the profile, It feels pretty much like my standard LPs profile but it is well warn in and just feels more comfortable. I'm not exactly sure if it's the finish being warn or what... Maybe it's a Wednesday guitar? Can't be a Monday or Friday guitar :D

    I have that same one, and you're correct; it was a limited edition GC-only release. I love the non-glossy backside.

    Did you sand the finish off the neck or did it arrive at your buddy's place that way?

    The headstock was sanded at some point so my guitar guy put the Les Paul back on it. He is going to redo the truss cover. He had a brain fart and did the Fadetoz upside down.
