    After several years of lookin I finally found the missing puzzle piece..2013 Gold Top Les Paul.
    These 2013 LP’s are in my opinion are the best versions that Gibson has put out there.
    Cheers!

    Lovely! Is it an "oversized" version?

    Per the Gibson bass book, which I recently purchased and highly recommend, all les paul model basses made from 2011 to 2013 are oversized bodies and chambered.
    Oversized simply means the bodies are bigger than the les paul guitar bodies
    I own a 2011 model in gloss black.

    All 3 basses in that picture have the oversized & chambered body

    Ah...good old Denmark St....spent a lot of time there in my much younger years, before the Japanese collectors raided it in the early 90s. Ian Bishop used to have a store there...a zillion Gibsons and one heck of a fine gentleman.

    I owned one of those early EB-0s back in the day, in absolutely trashed condition but truth be told I would be happy to buy it back. These are very sweet - if somewat quirky - instruments...

    Live, from NAMM?

    I really like these... pure, simple functionality. Well done, Gibson. Thanks for posting. :thumbsup:

    Per Rob van den Broek, author of the Gibson Bass Book there were Orville by Gibson and also Orville
    There may have been some type of pop corn in the mix?

    I can just imagine the sound. Guess I need to get a set of pyramid flats and one of those.

    Exactly.
    Plus, I would like to know the specs of that pickup.
    ...and I'm already thinking about a certain project... just moving that bridge a little further and replacing the fingerboard....

    If the switch is an actual varitone switch rather than just a pup selector I'm gonna find one and jump on it!
