no way! really? so they are priced the same... but what about the quality?...
pros and cons about how they sound and feel and... stuff
i really need to know:|
#9
i thought a PRS would be that expensive... but i never thought a Les Paul would be that much.
#10
I'd say gibson les paul standard. they're sick.

yeah les pauls are expesnive. a standard gibson les paul goes for like 2200.
#11
sorry dude cant help you there much.

and les paul prices differ because there are liek 10k diff models of each but ones that match up to the prs's quality (i would assume) cost like 2k dollars and those are the les paul standard and higher i guess

well i haevn't ever played a Gibson Les Paul... or an SC 250...
i have played an epiphone SG though
#13
Just to let you know the price quote I got for the PRS with the artist package was $3100. Just a little bit more than the Les Paul is, lol.
#14
well, i have an lp, if you get a new one, its gonna sound sick. like a premium plus one would be superb.

the prs is pretty sick too. you should try em out. either way, your gonna get quite a piece of instrument whichever way you go.

good luck

I'd go for the SC250. But I just love PRS.

I've played a lot of both, Gibson and PRS, I like the way PRS plays better. And since that one's not an SE its US built.

And I think the Paul is better because high end PRS's are hard to beat in quality. Whereas I always hear the Gibson horror stories regarding quality.

Its a hard choice. Most likely easier if you would go play them. Personally I would get a new amp with some of that money.

I am kinda offset with Les Pauls. When i was in the studio recording my old bands new cd, I actually played a Jay Turser Les Paul, a cheap as hell guitar, but you could not tell a difference between it and the Les Paul Custom that was at the studio. We panned my guitar to the right and the other guitarist used the custom panned to the left. The producer could not tell a difference in sound, but the quality with the custom was way better. I have a friend who plays a PRS and loves it, the sound is great, but again its your call. Long story short, just remember a big price tag does not always mean it is amazing. A $2000 guitar through a crap amp wont make your tone that much better.

PRS

Especially since it is the CE series. Those are really nice, way better than a majority of Gibsons ive played imo.

well, i have a gibson lp studio, and i love, sounds beautiful and i got it at long and mcquade for 1600 and since you live in ontario as i do, im assuming it'd be the same price from wherever you are.
