Yes. And if you bought them when Gold was merely $300 an ounce, you'd have some extra worth in your Les Paul these days...

Electroplating is microscopically thin.

Don't get TOO excited....

 

Stewie is right about one thing, 24k gold is highly resistant to tarnish.

Most pseudo-gold plating looks like sh!t in a couple years.

 

Every old Les Paul I've ever seen with gold hardware did not age very well...

 

My SG 12 string was made in 1995 and the gold looks kinda blah....

 

BurstBucker Pro kicks ***.

I have them in my Les Paul Classic Plus.
