Green LP Goldtop - Master Series
Green LP Goldtop is part of our Master Series. The guitars are built in our Custom Shop. It is built with great passion by skilled and experienced guitar builders. The wood material is handpicked and selected for the best look and tone. We choose pickups that are among the best you can put in a guitar. All components are of very high quality.
To get to the right body in the tone, Green LP Gold Top is built of mahogany, both body and neck. There is a rosewood fretboard that gives a warm tone and a long, balanced sustain. After some testing we chose Tesla VR-60 Classic pickups that have the ability to pick up the thick tone of the guitar and color it in a way that give the right character with a lot of body in the tone - a late 50th century Les Paul, delicious!
The neck has a D-profile. It is a small ounce flatter on top than a C-section. Both the neck width and thickness of the neck is a so called medium, neither thin or thick. The feeling you get when you play it depends on what you are used to. If you are used to narrow and thin necks You will experience it as a thick one and if You are accustomed to thicker necks You may feel it as too thin. The amount of wood in the neck is important for sound and sustain so it is not insignificant in this context.
Anyway, our guitar panel liked it a lot. They highlighted the look, finish and the neck that they thought was real beauties. Magnus who own a Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop compared it with that one and felt it almost feels like his own Gibsom when it comes to sustain and tone. Other comments were about hthe superb playability.
This is a guitar that has that little bit extra in terms of appearance, playing comfort and sound. As usual, It is better looking in real life than in the photos.
