  1. Thanks Guys' date=' I actually went to my music place and sat down with a few Gibson Les Paul Standards from the last couple years it was a blast. Then I picked up an epi les paul standard, picked out a couple notes, and feeling the weight and hearing the tone I respectfully put it back down. I'm not knocking it, but after I buy that solid state Marshall 50 I was playing those Gibson Les Pauls on, I'm saving my pennies up to add a real Les Paul to the collection. For. Sure.

     

    Just like my SG there's no comparison between it and models made [i']like[/i] my guitar.

     

    Hopefully I'll sound better when I go back in a few years so as not to embarrass myself in a store full of guys who can really play #-o

    You made the right choice. You can't go wrong with a Gibson Les Paul [blink]

  2. I actually would buy a reliced guitar, just as long as it's not overdone. I mean, some guitars look good with relicing, but some guitars on the market look like they've been throw on the ground, and abused. I'm sure many guitar players willing to pay 3,000-25,000 dollars for a guitar would like one that looks new, and not one that looks like a $100 junker. [biggrin]

  3. The Custom is all about looks, and sounds great too. If you're on a budget, then the Standard is the way to go. The Standard is a great guitar for the money, especially if you buy used. But, if money isn't an issue, then I'd go for the Custom. I have both, but if I had to choose I'd go for the Custom, just based on the fact that the custom would be harder to replace. (more $)

  4. I have an SG Robot (If that counts) and I love it. The tuning option is great for gigs, and it's a really well made guitar. Like DiamondJig said, it has some custom features including an Ebony Fretboard (Which is a Personal Favorite of Mine), Neck and Headstock Binding, and some great sounding pickups. I personally love it, and I bought it for $1100 (American) and it has the Classic SG sound that every player strives for.

  5. For me, I understand that someone would want a guitar that plays like their hero's guitar, like the Pearly Gates for example. The Price may be high, but......how much would it cost for an actual 1959 Les Paul? Alot more. So even though Sig's are not my cup of tea, I get that some people buy Sig's.
