    Same here. The gold on my les Paul custom is practically gone . But it still plays well. And it's Korean!

    For me I am not classy enough for gold hardware!

    It is an SRV signature model, I changed out the pickguard when the original started warping a few years back. It us tucked away safe.

    A lot of people think it looks extra cool when the plating wears off.

    Could it be fake gold?
