Building a guitar is not cheaper than buying one straight. It's bound to be more expensive and the results aren't going to be as good unless you're an experienced builder.

I think Carvins are 25.5 inch scale, not 25 inch.

The Carvin is better bang for your buck new (unbeatable in my opinion) but the used PRS, if in good condition, will probably be more what you want. ...

When you play fast riffs on the low E and learn them all without a string above, it's easy to get sloppy and hit the B string by mistake. Nothing a month or two of practice won't fix but muting...

Like anything, there is a learning curve. Playing six-string songs is easy on a seven string guitar, but it won't be quite as easy as on a sixer. The big deal is that you have to learn to mute the...

You use a 52 for low B? :eek: Does it intonate correctly? I'd still imagine it flops around quite a bit... even the 60 "heavy core" I use is a bit floppy here and there.

Oh, yeah, I'd take a G&L any day over a Fender Strat. But, they are more expensive and I'm not sure how the lower cost import series stack up.

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard is a great guitar for the money. The differences between them and Gibsons are extremely minor and mostly come down to finish details and quality of the pickups.
