"In honor of the decade that gave birth to rock and roll Gibson USA is proud to present the acclaimed Les Paul Studio in a unique new package. The new Les Paul Studio ’50s Tribute model embodies the look and tone of the great original Les Pauls from the 1950s, at a price that fits the wallets of today’s hardworking musicians. Ever since its introduction in 1983, the Les Paul Studio model has been enormously popular with players seeking the power and versatility of the original Les Paul Standard in a ready-for-action package, with a price to match. The Les Paul Studio ‘50s Tribute sticks to the script entirely, but its five worn ’50s-style finishes and meaty dual single-coil P-90 pickups give it a look akin to classics from the decade of the Les Paul’s birth, so much so that you’ll be doing a double-take to check it’s not an original 55-year-old Lester!"

Gold Tops are pre-selling, like "hotcakes!" I have one reserved, with my down payment,
to my local dealer...E.M. Shorts. But, depending on how fast Gibson gets back into production,
it could be months, yet. ???

I'm thinking that Gibson is taking a cue from the watch companies that market watches with see-through backs. However, with watches you are actually able to see parts moving while the watch keeps time. Some of us vintage folks remember the Bulova Accutron Spaceview watch. All you really saw as the circuit board inside the watch, with the hands moving in the foreground. They sold a lot of those. I suppose it they're putting vintage looking capacitors, pots, etc., it's cool to peer in at.
