P-90 pick-ups, golden tone and finish.
What you see is what you get with the Epiphone '56 Gold top P90 electric guitar - gold in sound and vision. A very authentic look and very good craftmanship. The guys in Korea nowadays are doing a fine job.
Compared to the Alnico pick-ups of my older Epiphone standard in black, this one sounds more crunchy in one position, and even more creamy in the other setting.
The neck is very comfortable, and the gold finish reflects in the lights really nice in changing colours.
This guitar looks really cool, and if you want to get a little bit of the vintage feeling, try a Gold Top, and you'll like it too.
