Ok, so basically, i want to buy a new guitar. more specifically, a gibson les paul. So now i come to you UGers to help with a decision. I'm stuck between a les paul Junior, BFG, or studio. I'm really thinkin towards the BFG, but I just came to you to see what maybe some more experienced guitarists think.

I play most kinds of rock, from punk to classic to metal.
The tone i wanna get is a very punchy, crunchy rock sound.
The amp i use is a fender dsm 25
I have enough of a budget for any one of these guitars.

I think you should go try them out and make your own choice. How could anyone else possibly know what's best for you in this situation?

As a courtesy, anytime you post a thread like this, please include the following:

1. Type of guitar (as you have done)
2. Style of music or tone you are looking for
3. Amp that will be used to achieve the sound you are looking for
4. Budget.

You may also want to explain why you are considering these choices.

Are you getting a lower priced Gibson to just get a Gibson or are you looking for the tone? Do you realize all three of these have different pickups? The BFG has a P-90 in the neck and the Burstbucker 3 in the bridge. The JR has 1 P-90, and the Studio has a pair of HBs. They all feel diffrent, sound different, look different. Its a little hard for any of us to tell you what you should get.
