Do you like black plastic on Goldtops?


Recommended Posts

I just ordered black plastic parts for my 1994 R7 to make it look like the John Peden '57 Goldtop at Jackson Rare Guitars.


I think it will look cool. Actually that was how the original owner had it setup,but he put the original plastic back on when he sold it to the store where I bought it.It didn't come with a pickguard,but he drilled it when he put a black one on.


This is my guitar now.




I want to make it look like the 1957 LP below.What do you guys think Hot or not?

Jimmy Page began using the Goldtop Les Paul Classic Premium Plus while with David Coverdale, as seen on the music video for Pride And Joy. When Page reunited with Robert Plant in 1994, he used this guitar for the newly-extended Kashmir.


Page also used the Goldtop Les Paul Classic Premium Plus in 1999-2000 with the Black Crowes for Whole Lotta Love in the section before the Theremin Duel.


For the sliding sound on the end of 'Sons Of Freedom', I used the TransPerformance guitar. I'm really happy with that guitar. - Jimmy Page, Guitar Shop, September 1998
