With similar pickups?

If so which would you choose.

Im thinking the Epi would sound different because of the weight of the guitar.

I'm trying to chose my guitar. And I like both. Music is going to be mainly, clean riffs, Jazz blues, reggae, ska the heaviest ill go is some led zeppelin stuff

I've seen lots of Reggae/Ska bands using PRS's lately. If you were playing more gain oriented things I'd say the Epi, but the PRS SE sounds better suited to your needs.
But of course: Try them both out first! See which one you like.

If it were me, I'd go with the SE, but like stated above - it's a very personal taste thing. Try them both if you can and go with what feels best to you. Just remember that while your guitar and hardware play a part in your tone, the balance of it comes from your amp.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

Update your original post to say you're looking to buy a guitar and stating what you want out of it. If not, this is just a vs thread.

Though I play some pretty heavy stuff, PRS just totally excels in feel and tone. You really can't go wrong.
#15
no they wont sound the same its different companies so different construction standards and prs will have higher standards than epiphone or epiphone more than prs but in terms of just reputation alone and experience go with the prs epiphone have very mixed reviews but prs just have a great sound from the different mass production models ive played dont get me wrong epi is good but ive just had much better experience with quality from prs
#16
they'll sound in teh same ballpark with similar pickups, but even with the same pickups they're not going to sound exactly the same because of different construction, scale length, body shape and mass, etc. etc.
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.

They're not going to sound exactly the same but they also aren't going to sound all that different. Pick the one you prefer the feel and features off, that is the bigger difference and that is much more important. The control layouts on Les Pauls and most PRS guitars are different, the bridges are different and the scale lengths are different. The sound is the least of your concerns.
#19
Get the Custom 22 if you have the option, no point in the 24 fret option if you won't be using IMO. But at the price of a new Epi LP, there are better instruments out there (like the PRS SE series you are looking at).

But what do I know? The two if I remember correctly have very different feels -so play them both and pick based on feel.
