I'll admit my bias up front... I like Trads over Standards.


That said, it just totally depends on what you like. If you like a skinny neck, Burstbucker Pros, push-pull pots, and modern weight relief then the Standard is for you. If you like a thicker neck, 57 Classics, more straightforward electronics, and lesser traditional weight relief then the Trad is more your speed. As I said, I'm a Trad guy.


I personally wouldn't buy a guitar that didn't have the options I like/want just because it had a nicer top.
