So I tried out my guitar teacher Gibson lp customer and I absolutely loved it but then I realised I don't have 2 grand laying around so ive checked out the lp studio and standard on the net and I was just wondering which has a thinner lighter sleeker look and a thinner neck as I play metal and lost of shreddy stuff they both look like beautiful guitars but the standard is more expensive but if its worth it im willing to spend a little extra so which one do u think is best for me?

you can get the standard LP with a 50's (thicker) or 60's (thinner) neck.

The studio only comes with the 50's neck. If the neck makes much of a difference, go with the standard. If not, go with the studio.

Look at epiphone. I'm guessing this is your second guitar? Epiphone LP custom, Standard, even Elitist would be atleasr 200$ less, and with almost identical tone

Get an Epiphone Les Paul, chances are if you're still getting taught the guitar by a teacher, then you dont need a Gibson Les Paul. The Epiphone version Les Paul is still a really good guitar, and they sell it an an incredibly good price, especially if you buy B-stock. I doubt you'll even be able to tell much of a difference between the two, sound-wise and playablility-wise.


And noone quote my post to bring up the fact that Randy took lessons up until he died, I'm aware of that and thats why i said "chances are you dont need a $1000+ guitar if you're still taking lessons".

Actually, Agile and Michael Kelly are supposed to be far better than your average mid-range Epiphone (though Epiphones' quality varies widely even on guitars of the same model, and I'm sure there are some nice ones out there that are just as good as gibsons)

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.

Yeah, if you're going copy, I'd definitely go Agile. They're great guitars, really. I don't know what I'd do without mine.

And I'm not just jumping on the bandwagon, I actually own one.

But if you can afford a Gibson, get it! They're awesome guitars, and even if you quit playing later, it'll have wayyy more resale value than an Agile or Epiphone.
