I was thinking of getting this guitar but I really wanted some other opions on it. So, please share your thoughts.

i'd just get a standard personally, or maybe that mirrorish one. the new double cuts are nice too.

Yeah I don't understand how you could spend that much money on a guitar thats actually made to be abused on the road. Just buy any damn cheap Mahogany guitar with humbuckers and there you go.

gibson has had a double cut for years, just in the past it didn't have a carved top. i dont think prs will sue them, prs makes some damn nice guitars though, even if they cost so much.

i think the GT just has different cosmetics and is built to be more durable than other LPs.. id just go with a standard, unless you plan to be on the road or somewhere where your guitar is gonna get abused

ok im not 100% positive on this, so someone correct me if im wrong, but im pretty sure the Goldtop was actually the first LP model in production in the 50s, up until the standard was created. a true goldtop is either going to be 50s vintage or a custom shop reissue.. LP Standards do come in goldtop finish, but its not the same as the original goldtop.. its a sweet lookin finish tho, id get a standard in goldtop, unless ud rather drop $3000+ for a reissue or $60,000 for a vintage 50s goldtop haha

hmm i was considering a gt too, anyways the only thing i can think of that would kinda suck is the neck, which is a standard 50s style neck, so it supposedly tick, but if you like the flames i think it woul dbe an awseome buy, if you get it post pics and a review

Exactly. The original Goldtops had P-90s. In 1957 they switched to Humbuckers, and in 1958 they made the Standard, and ceased production on the Goldtop. They ceased production on the standard in 1960.

the chunky necks really arent that bad, unless u have really small hands.. i have the chunky neck on my '57 lp reissue and its fine. its weird tho, switching between a fender and gibson kuz the fender neck is so much skinnier
