Here is a really fine 1952 Goldtop owned by my friend, Doug Gordon, who fronted the band, Tangier, in the late 80s/early 90s. Tangier's 1st album was produced by Andy Johns(Stones, Zeppelin, Van Halen, etc). The 50w Marshall head and 4x12 cab are from 1973. We had this guitar over earlier in the year for a setup, and this particular Goldtop is as good as any 50s Les Paul I've heard-no reason to change anything on the guitar, including the trapeze TP. Also check out his 63 Firebird III in a very special Johnny Winter tribute in the Other Gibsons section here on the LPF.
