Epi les Paul goldtop


Recommended Posts

I have a chance to buy a Epiphone Les Paul goldtop from 1996 serial number F6040549 with Seymour Duncan 59' SH-1 i bridge and SH-2 Jazz neck PU's


I don't know much about Epi les paul models -so tell me a little about this one??


Is this "old one" "better" (wood, frets) build than the new ones today??


I have a 2001 wildkat and loves the neck -is this one something like that?


here are some picks:

Oh man; thats a sweet looking Goldtop. Due to the serial number it is a Korean model. Pretty much the same specs as a Standard model but with a Goldtop finish.

There are some fine examples of Korean models out there as well as some that are not. I just picked up a '89 model that is pretty sweet but also recently passed on a early 90s model. The Chinese models being built today are getting much better, especially the higher end models.

With the upgraded pickups I would give this one a go if the price is right.
