I say the LP. I don't like the 490/498 pickups. Make sure to play around with the pickup heights, I put some of those into a guitar and didn't care much for them. But then I adjusted the heights...

1) About the same weight. All the Les Pauls seem to vary though, so that's not a given.
2) Not if it's a 2013, those pickups are crap quality and should be replaced immediately, if not sooner. 2014...

Oh, and my guess as to what happened: they took a V and made a "travel" guitar out of it.

Doesn't matter what the pot says, at this point anything on the guitar could have been replaced with whatever they had laying around (including junk pots from 1970).

If you can afford it, go with the Tribute+. But otherwise the Custom Pro is a good guitar.

Hard to say which would be better. They both are pretty good guitars from what I can tell. The Epiphone Probucker pickups would be the deciding factor in going with the Florentine personally.

Yeah, you can do that. Or spend a few more bucks and replace the pots and other wiring too. Then you don't need to worry about the connector.

I'd agree that if you can you should get the HD500. More memory for bigger effects chains if you need it.

My HD500 has worked great for me.

I like the Line 6 HD500 "pedal" and UX1 and 2 interfaces I have, though another guitarist I know didn't like the HD500. Difference in taste and/or ability to hear stuff I suppose.

The JB/Jazz combo is a good one. Only reason I don't have that set in a guitar now is because I traded them for a set of P-Rails that I wanted to try.

Instead of a new amp you could consider a modelling amp or something like the Line 6 HD500. Then you could have a lot of pedal/amp combinations to try for a somewhat reasonable cost.
