What are the pro's and con's of it? I'm considering buying it and making upgrades or is it not worth the effort and I should just go ahead and buy a Gibson les paul studio?

If you're gonna get an Epi LP, Id say either get the Les Paul Custom or the LP Elite, its awesome and the satin neck feels awesome.

well, what country are you in? that'll affect prices, and possible other recommendations, a lot.

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.

I think the Epi is a good buy - put in some better electronics (new pots, wiring capacitors and PUs) and it'll make a brilliant guitar, that IMO will be somewhat more aesthetically pleasing and comfortable than the Gibby LP Studio whilst (perhaps?) sounding as good.
