I stopped by GC today and up high were two Gibson Les Paul tribute goldtops, side by side. A 2017 and 2018. It looked to me that the 17 had a slightly brighter shade of gold.
Does anyone know if Gibson is using the same shade of gold on both models or are all goldtops slightly different? I still want one no matter what.

The 2018 models are now up on the Gibson site. You should be able to see the paint used on the respective models there. My suspicion is that the 2017 color has slightly changed due to exposure to light and age.

I looked at 4 at a time on Sweetwaters website and there does seem to be variations in the shades of gold.
