I just ordered the new Gibson Les Paul Standard 50’s Goldtop reissue. ($2400.00) I had the Custom Shop 57’ Les Paul (2014) with the Custombucker pickups. ($4600.00) To me, it was perfect in every way. Hell, I didn’t even have to plug it in to enjoy playing it. Great tone and resonance acoustically. Well, like a freaking idiot, I sold it a couple years ago. Now I wanted to replace it. They’re $6200.00 now. So, I thought the 50’s Standard might “hold up” after I install the Custombucker pickups I just picked up on Reverb for $500.00. The new LP Standards are supposed to be very nice since they dropped all the stupid modern weight relief and electronic gadgetry and went back to the roots of the LP. We’ll see!
