  I like Golden Melodys but they always sounded muddier to me than 
Special 20s and don't punch through a band as well. And the older ones 
definitely sound better than the newer ones. I have a 5-year-old 
Golden Melody in B that I absolutely love, and despite the rust on its 
cover plates, I still use it at gigs all the time. The new ones can't 
touch it. (BTW, I think the older special 20s sound better than the newer 
ones, too).
