I think i should have waited a few more days because many deals will begin but i've contacted my friend from Georgia and if the 15% discount coupon that i got from MF online chat works, he will buy the Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe Electric Guitar Heritage Cherry Sunburst for $849usd also added one Dunlop Dual-design straplok and one levy strap soft suede to the order.

Hope i've made the right choice.

It doesn't have active pickups, it's not blue, but it's an american Gibson!

It worths almost $3000usd (6000BRL) here in Brazil

Thanks for the advice guys. I hope that the coupon works and he buy that amazing guitar for me

Just because it's made in America doesn't mean it's right for you. For instance if you like Wizard necks, a POS Indonesian Ibby will feel better to you than an MIA Gibson.

Do you know your preferences? You're jumping around from Ibanezes to Gibsons and everything in between... it doesn't seem like you know what you want at all.

To be honest, i'd rather buy the ESP but i'm trying to find the best bang for the buck so this Gibson looks like a great deal.

I just want to get the best quality possible guitar. I would buy the Schecter Damien Elite cus i think it looks so beautiful...

I mean just like home theaters.. The Sony Muteki looks so beautiful and it's HUGE but with an simple onkyo setup you can beat that muteki easily

EDIT: The discount coupon did not work so i will have more time to decide.

If you're talking about the MH-1000, the Gibson really isn't that much better objectively. I mean, to be completely honest, the LTD Deluxe is probably a more solid guitar on all accounts.

Labor is cheaper in Korea than America. If you have an American guitar that costs the same as a Korean guitar, then the American guitar has to be sacrificing something somewhere. Since we know Gibson uses Hugh quality materials, that only leaves build quality.

I'm not trying to start a Gibson hate train or sway you one way or the other. I just want you to see all the angles and make as informed a decision as you can.


I really wouldn't bother with a Damien. It's nowhere near the same league as these guitars. While looks are very important, make sure you're getting a quality instrument first and foremost.

Can you try the guitars? Do you have any music stores near? You can always go and try stuff and then buy it online unless the guys in the store decide to sell it cheaper for you (you can always ask them to lower the price).

I mean, we can't tell whether you like Gibsons, ESPs, Ibanezes... or not. But for the bands you mentioned you most likely don't want active pickups. Only Metallica (they sometimes use passives) and Megadeth (only Mustaine) of the bands you mentioned use actives.
