    Hey, new to the Forum it longtime TDPRI member. I've always played Fenders (just bc I fell into good deals). Am very interested in the SE Goldtop, prolly bc of some guy named David, heh. Just in surfing around I see the descriptions, but not finding anything available are they still in production?
    Thx all!

    There were some nice SE Custom 24 gold tops with bound ebony fretboards a few years ago if I recall correctly.

    My original plan was a budget SE DGT w dual concentric volumes for blending the pups and a tremolo. I need to see if I can test drive a few examples. Poor me, right?!?
    Thx!

    Jcolmn was right. There was SE Custom 24 inGold finish (all gold, top and back) made in the year 2014, a few years before Paul's signature became screened on SE headstocks. There's also SE 245 Gold finish too.
    I guess these gold SEs were made in a limited run and were sold through some selected dealers worldwide.

    And currently PRS is offering SE Santana Singlecut Trem which is only availble in Egyptian Gold color, without body binding, as the only color option. I don't see any other SEs come in gold color these days though.

    The said '14 SE CU24 gold looks like this:

    Next one is SE 245, made in the same year.

    And the current and only model offered in gold (Egyptian Gold), SE Santana Singlecut Trem.

    Just to clarify, all of the SE’s are gold all over not just their tops.

    I believe @matt3310 has the only legit SE gold top made.

    It’s too bad there aren’t more gold top PRS, and especially SE’s.

    Aww... I didn’t mean it like that... :oops:

    I do think that a proper gold top finish on some SEs would be frickin’ fantastic though.
