Good idea! Black Soapbar is the name.Sure thing dnabbet2, I'll remove the neck pickup and take pics next time I change the strings.
Hamerfan, looks like you're right, for some reason I assumed it must have come with buckers but I was wrong. I'll look into the covers and put them back on, I might also replace the gold hardware parts and keep the chrome ones as a keepsake.
I believe a few things to differentiate those early 70's LPC and Goldtop reissues is that they had no volute, one piece neck, non-pancake bodyFantastic that it has the original pots so you can date it.
Does the back of the headstock have a volute? I may be wrong but I think the 54 Reissues didn't have one.
