Yes, definitely Gold on a Black Les Paul Custom is awesome! This is a Classic Custom with '57 Humbuckers. Note, even the Truss Rod Cover is Gold. Beautiful Guitar
Thanks. A good amp is nice to have.
Ah, a youngster. I was of that opinion at your age
I love gold hardware. I think it looks classy. I also like black hardware.
Gold = Deal breaker.
Good enough for Hank, fine by me! My Classic Series Strat, with hardware taken from ( gulp) new 'Fiesta Red' Classic Vibe FSR with gold-plated hardware. Plays beautifully....and incidentally this is REAL Fiesta Red, the new Classic Vibe certainly is not! Time for a new thread-what is or is not Fiesta Red???!
I just can't get past gold hardware myself. If I like a guitar and it has gold, it just kills the interest to acquire it. Even with jewelry I prefer white gold....
Cmon, nobody. Not one like. This is the one I bought not realizing it had gold hardware. Not only did I forget to read the ad I didn't notice the gold hardware in the pictures. That's Ok gold hardware or not this thing sounds amazing. Plays well too. My sparkle collection is growing.
I removed the neck of my 1982 Squier JV '57 Stratocaster to build my own Mary Kaye strat.
The original and very clean sunburst JV body i stored safely in a guitar bag.
All it needs is a Warmoth neck!
Or restore the JV and put a MiM "Classic 50s Lacquer" neck on the Mary Kaye!
That's how my buddy's son ended up with my plywood Squier... Started with some simple parts upgrades, and within a year or two, I had a completely new "57" burst with Gold Laces, and a box of the original Squier parts.
Lace sensor !
I just finished this project one week ago, so it’s definitely gonna stay a while like this Four of my six JV's are sunburst, so i wanted something different and had this honey blonde nitro body at home that came from my very first guitar, a 2003 Fender HW1 Strat. I installed CS 69 Pickups, a "Fender / Pat. pend" tremolo and Gotoh tuners.
Always can bring the JV back to original.
While it's not usually my first choice, i don't mind it at all, at least not in some instances.
Both of those came with gold hardware, and i can't see why i'd change it out in either case.
There ya go...That guitar was the reason I built this one. I owned a Walnut Elite P-Bass, and that's the guitar I regret selling the most!
I was always into those Walnut Elites, and wanted to collect the whole set, the strat, bass (don't know why they didn't do a jazz bass) and the tele.
The strats were selling for CRAZY MONEY at the time, so I just built my own. Glad you like it, yours is awesome too.
I had to tear out the original skunkstripe, because when I had that neck built, they were used to doing maple necks, and walnut was the deferred wood for the skunkstripe.
So when I ordered a walnut neck, they put in a walnut stripe, so I had my luthier replace it with the birdseye, which is actually stained down a few shades, and added a nice pop to the back.
Thanks for the thumbs up!!
On a Fender, not a big fan,but it suits the decadent vibe of my Joe Pass
Well, it looks great. It is like the reverse of mine, but with the same woods. Lets see another picture of your neck, please!
@Kyri That is an amazing photo of the reverse!
