Whichch Les Paul? D:

Hey guys,
my parents said if I get an A on both my Geography and French exams, they'd buy me a Les Paul of my choice. I'm torn between two... which do you guys think looks better the Apline one or Cherry Sunburst?
Cheers guys :P

DAMN you got some cool parents! I'm a sucker for the cherry sunburst but the white is very sleek and clean looking. I'd opt for the burst but it's really your own preference.

Erm... What LP are we talking about? I can't think of a model that has both alpine white and cherry sunburst as finishes, so I'm going to guess they are different models?

EDIT: Oh, unless they are tribute models?
It depends on the model, really, Alpine white customs or studios are great looking, but the Tribute alpine white looks like an albino sheep...

If you're looking at Alpine White's, which are classy as hell, it's either gunna be a Custom which will set you back £2500 for a new one at least or a studio, which will be between £700 - £1000 depending on the year.

Basically, it doesn't matter what the colour is. It's how it plays and how it sounds that matters. Go on that, not the colour.

Unless you can't stand a heavy guitar, get a Traditional, as Tom and Chris already said. They're wonderful guitars if they suit you.

You sure you parents mean a real Les Paul or just Les Paul-ish?

I would choose the Cherry sunburst because (IMO!) Les Paul looks horrible in white.

There are sooo many variations of the Les Paul. But if they do really mean ANY LP of your choice, get a custom shop R9 haha

+4 or 5 whatever number its been plused to now. As an owner of a Traditional all I can say is its like guitar sex in my hands whenever I want to hold it, its the type of guitar that when I am at work I think about playing it, seriously nice beast. Don't go by online pictures either when selecting a finish they look completely different in picture and in real life, I bought my Trad to make a tibute guitar to Jimmy Page, and from online pictures I thought honeyburst was too light, but when I saw it in the store I knew it was the closest I could get.

I like how everyone's telling him to get a gibson, I doubt his parents know about guitars or know how much a REAL gibson is worth ( unless his parents are rich then its not a problem ) so they probably only ment a "les paul shape guitar"
