Here's mine. Goldtop in satin on the discontinued C66. This guitar was my #1 for a long time, but it's since been relegated to being the at-home noodler rather than the main stage guitar. All the electronics have been swapped out for DiMarzio/CTS.

What's more relevant is that I've found that the satin goldtop looks rather "bleh" in person under normal lighting. But under stage lighting, it glows. It's a pretty neat effect. I guess rather than reflecting the stage lights like a glossy/mirror finish would, this guitar seems to absorb the and really shines in a super cool way. I try here to capture that a bit with the flash, but it doesn't quite capture how cool it really is.

Here's mine, it's satin matte goldtop. I've said it a bunch around here, but it for posterity's sake, I'll say it again. In regular/home/rehearsal light, it's quite unremarkable, but under stage lights, it looks stunning. It seems to absorb the light and glow rather than reflect it like a mirror finish. I'd highly recommend satin goldtop if you're performing on stage, but not so much if you're an at-home player.

Great pictures and guitar! The other reason I got gloss is because I am clumsy so it will protect it better.
