• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

'57 Goldtop arrived today.

It exceeds my expectations. Steve at Wildwood told me that this was a good one. Buying sight unseen, I tend to worry about things such as string alignment, the shade of finish and grain on the back, small flaws in the finish etc. Well, this guitar is as near perfect as any guitar I own and I checked it over good (even put my reading glasses on so I could see). The feel and playability, wow! I do love this big fat neck. The only things I've done to it, besides playing it for about 5 hours today, was raise the action just a bit and install strap locks.

From my experience, Steve will never lead you on. I bought my R8 sight unseen from him, and he told me it was a "special guitar". Boy, he wasn't kidding!

Glad you're enjoying the GT! I miss mine dearly, but just had to have a 'burst and sold it. I'd replace it, but I've got a case of amp G.A.S. that I just can't shake (yet?). Post a pict or two if you can. Tom
