Goldtop fever strikes.

Picked this up a couple of weeks before Christmas:
Gibson Limited Edition Les Paul Tribute Guitar Specifications

Body Style: Les Paul Studio
Back: Mahogany
Top: A grade plain maple
Weight relief: 9 hole
Neck: Mahogany
Neck profile: Slim taper
Neck width: 1.695"
Heel: Traditional
Fingerboard: Rosewood
Scale length: 24.75
Number of frets: 22 polished frets
Nut: Tektoid
Inlay: Acrylic trapezoids
Bridge: Aluminum Tune-o-Matic with steel thumbwheels
Tailpiece: Aluminum Stop Bar with steel posts
Knobs: Gold top hats with silver inserts and pointers
Tuners: Grover Locking
Plating: Nickel
Neck pickup: P-90 Cream Covers
Bridge pickup: P-90 Cream Covers
Controls: 2 volumes, 2 tones, 1 toggle switch
Case: Padded gig-bag
In this case when they say slim taper, they mean it. Fast is not superlative enough.

I'd get that in a good hard case, just to protect the neck. And since it came with pointers installed, that's all you need to do.
Looks good !!!

Thanks, it's pretty hard to get it out of my hands. For blues and Le Jazz Haute it is hard to beat.

Congratulations! I love it when I really develop a bond with a guitar, there's nothing like it.

Nope, I bought it online from AMS. I have now done three very satisfactory deals with them. I actually didn't need to do much to get it setup, the Plek and factory setup were real good. I have played the heck out of it since it got here, I think the SG in the corner is getting jealous.
BTW-String changes are infinite less painful with the Grover locking tuners. Easy and quick!
