    Mine is just an Epi something or other, but with everything upgraded it's pretty decent.
    And I LOVE the Mojave Fade color....

    I can't make judgments; I'm working from a small sample size. But I've always wondered where returns go.

    It's become the landing spot for anchoring his little finger when he plays.

    I have made comparison between my Tributes, my Agile ALs, and my Callisto's with some of my best humbuckers swapped around. IMO, my Callisto's actually sound better than the others, once I've put in new harnesses w/ 50's wiring and pio caps, cts pots, etc. The 2018 tributes are great guitars, too. But I am selling all my non-Callisto LP guitars and keeping several 2019 Callisto STD+/CUS 's with excellent humbucker sets in them. IMO, it must be the wood used in recent production run.

    I think you may need to spawn a new GAS term: "CallistoCaster"

    I would add, I did full fret levels on about 1/2 of them. So, some work required.

    100_0163.JPG Got a Goldtop in '17 also. Here they are together. As for the sticker, wasn't motivated to remove it. And, there was a potential issue with the Honeyburst. Wanted to leave the guitar in an 'as-shipped' condition as much as I could. 100_0185.JPG
    In the second photo the sticker is gone. Should have turned the flash off however. The Honeyburst has a one-piece back. Surprise there for a then $900 guitar!

    I am not a huge fan of burst finishes but a Honey Burst Les Paul is gorgeous.

    That one is GORGEOUS!

    The Honeyburst is a finish I've seen with a lot of variation. I've seen 'em look like lemons, I've seen 'em look darker like tobaccos.

    Yeah...I'd bet they picked that one specifically for their facebook ad pic. I'm gonna head down to their flagship store in a week or so and see if they have it there..just to breath the same air it sits in...ha ha
