I have two Gibson Les Pauls. Had them for many years and have played them non stop at all my gigs over the years.
I got a Tokai Goldtop, used it for about two months and had to have another one. I then got a Sunburst Flametop and have been using these gtrs since 2009. I haven't touched my Gibsons at all in this time. That includes live and in the studio.
I have recently modded my Goldtop by fitting DiMarzios to it. (Super Distortion in the bridge and a Tone Zone in the neck). I did this because I wanted something different. Both my Tokais sounded absolutely identical so I made one of them a very high output gtr.
I really do rate these guitars very highly and would recommend them to anyone who's looking for a high quality "Les Paul".
Here's a little demo I did with both the gtrs before the mods.
