the only good lesser version of the LP is the LP special, but thats completely out of production now.
actually the LP studio is sold as being a step above the regular LP. they strip down the superficial niceties and focus on providing a better sound for recording hence the name 'studio'.

mind you as guitar bizarre points out whenever he gets the chance gibson's QA has gone downhill in a big way in recent years.

really? i thought the studio was a worse version. guess i should go back through that............

and yea.....altho someone said that might be on purpose because its a shredder thing to have frets screwed with like that.

but even with their QA going down, LPs are still one of the best guitars around

Frets screwed with how exactly?

And I should point out that LPs currently ARENT the best guitars around. I have played more than enough Les Pauls, including enough LP studios and standards, to inform you of this:

Gibson are selling on name only right now. If they were a new company selling guitars, they'd be out of business in weeks. LTDs, Ibanez, Cort, Maverick etc etc etc, are all making guitars that are twice the guitar of most gibsons, for a third of the price or less.

Look elsewhere and you'll be very surprised how much better things can be. I would definitely reccomend having a look at Carvin. They're ahybrid of custom shop and standard guitar company. YOu can order anything you want from them as long as its available in their options lists, and its still at a very good price. I configured a 'dream custom' from them and it was still half the price of most gibsons. And it would have been miles better in quality.

THats a pretty academic difference man, I think we both know I meant 'Gibson guitars are utter crap compared to their reputation'.

Splitting hairs over 'the best' or 'one of the best' is hardly going to change my meaning. I think Gibsons quality control even on passable guitars, is FAR below where it should be for instruments of their price and reputation, considering ESP, Ibanez, Norman, Schecter, Cort, and many thousands of other companies, are all making guitars that cost half as much and play twice as well, and are doing it CONSISTENTLY, as opposed to gibson, who are making good, and I mean TRULY good, high level guitars, somewhere on the order of 1 or 2 per 30 instruments.

I found even the Samick copies of the Les Paul for 1/4 the price play almost as well or as well with replaced pickups.
