i was thinking about buying one and i dont really wanna get ripped off.

heres the link:

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Epiphone-Les-Paul-Standard-Plain-Top?sku=517413

and its either that or the this one:

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Epiphone-Les-Paul-Standard-Electric-Guitar?sku=518341

Both links go to the Plain Top...

Plain Top is quite a bargain I think... better than the regular Standard tone wise IMO, yet less expensive. Sometimes I wish I would have gotten a Plain Top instead of the Standard.

Doesn't plain top basically mean it has no carved top body? Like the Les Paul Specials?

^^Ah ok thats what I figured you were comparing. The thing with the Standard is they have an alder core rather than a solid mahogany body like the Plain Top. Not necessarily bad, but with solid mahogany IMO you get more of a fuller thick tone along with a bit more sustain. Its subtle but there... Also the Standard has the flamed maple top and the Plain Top has the plain top..

but in terms of tone, theres no difference?

Yes, theres a difference. The Plain Top sounds a bit thicker and fuller because its solid mahogany... it's more apparent through a good amp.

Depends on what SG it is. If its a G400 don't bother. Anything less, then I'd say its a step up.
Be cool.
#15
yeah it is the G400

Well I wouldn't say your stepping down or stepping up (your adding another guitar to your rig) the Plain Top is probably similar in quality to the G-400, but both appear to be pretty nice guitars for the price.

I too somewhat wish I had gotten a Plain Top instead of my LP standard plus.

yeah i think the les paul fits the music i play better than the sg does too. (classic rock, alternative, etc.)
