This!I personally consider the Les Paul sound a lot broader than just golden era Bursts.
I have literally tons of 70s music played with especially early 70s Les Pauls. So many lesser known progrock or jazzrock bands used them especially in Europe with great results. Black Custom or Goldtop Deluxe were archetypal for these bands. Sure, they had different tone than Bursts, more "in your face", more focused, but that tone was great for that particular music genre and coupled with early 70s Marshalls or Hiwatts its the right Les Paul tone to me.
