Quick and somewhat tedious question.

The Gibson BFG has really caught my eye. I want to upgrade from my Epiphone Les Paul this summer while I am in the US (and can thus take full advantage of the exchange rate ) and want that Les Paul sound without throwing my entire wallet away.

Is the BFG actually just a stripped down Les Paul? I.e. will this thing sound as good as a LP Standard?
I am....making progress...
i love it with the p-90 in the bridge god it is such an awsome guitar i would say try it out if you like it buy it. i was going to buy one but then i saw my les paul and got it.
