Edwards. Without a doubt the best Les Paul clones. Some people even think they are better than the Gibsons.

Best ones? Morgaine. But those cost twice as much as Gibsons, so I guess that's not what you are looking for.

What's your budget?

They look okay, but I wouldn't expect too much. Just like a Squier Bullet looks okay, but the electronics crap out and the neck twists after a few years. Not like that's bound to happen, but I wouldn't be surprised if it did. You get what you pay for, or to be exact: You don't get what you don't pay for.

I played one of the white LP customs and it was amazing. I was really pissed actually because not long before I'd bought an Epiphone LP studio and for close to the same price I could have got the J&D which was much nicer. I found the neck to be just a little slimmer and faster than you normally get on LP type guitars, they are finished beautifully and the sound was fantastic, very warm and rich, just what you'd expect from a LP really. After all that though I'd say you should definately try one before you buy if at all possible. Is there nowhere over your side that sells them?

Vintage do some serious nice les paul copies, and so do Cort.

I've played a could J&D's and they really are great value for money. I played a PRS Cu 22 look a like that cost $600 and it played better than similar guitars in the $1000 mark.

Dean Soltero, Leslie West custom. Fn Sweet. Otherwise Heritage make some sweet lps. Agile is a pretty good choice and a lot of epi copies are almost as good as the real thing.

Go with a Tokai, my guitar teacher compared mine favorably to his Gibson the other day, the only thing he prefers about the gibson is that he could sell for about ten times the amount I could sell mine for!

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Get a Tokai, blows the awful Epiphone out of the water then cums on its face. Just make sure it's a Japanese model, the craftsmanship is unbeatable.

You have Greco or Navigator in MIJ too but Navigator base price is $4000 so ... I don't know

I don't know what your budget is but the Gibson Les Paul Studio is pretty amazing. I have an alpine white 06 Studio LP. It has a great thick sound. I would atleast try one out if you are looking for a LP.
