WTB: MIJ Les paul Deluxe goldtop

Post by Diodibuh » Mon Dec 11, 2017 1:50 pm

I know they're rare but let's try. So looking for MIJ Les paul Deluxe, goldtop. I know that Morris made some in 76, Aria also made some, not shure about other MIJ builders. There is also an option goldtop with P90, I have mini humbuckers spare set.
I prefer vintage piece.
thank you

Go for Tokai P90 Goldtop and exchange P90's for Minihumbucker...

There's also the late '70s pre Super Real Greco EG800, seems like a copy of the Gibson Les Paul Deluxe.

I have one of the Aria Deluxe in sunburst, possibly a 1976 LD700, and it's a damn fine guitar.
Like gibson with a pancake body and 3 piece neck.
Unlike with fret edge binding, 2 piece centered top instead of the usual 3, 1 piece back and small vintage headstock.
As good as the 2 "real" ones I've owned. Really like the mini humbuckers too.

I heard they threatened Tokai with a lawsuit, but they never got to Cort?

thanx, I'll check that Greco, didn't know they exist.
Togps: yes, this is also an option
Loudmouse: thank you for link, we discussed some time ago about your guitar. I was looking for Aria but looks like they're really rare.

Put that set of minihumbuckers you already have in a guitar is a good way to go too.
I added a pair to my Ibanez RS135 and they work great.
