Because Gibson Firebirds are like $1800, and Gibson LPs below $1000 aren't all that great.
Go for Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top or Elitist Les Paul or the Les Paul Ultra II. i never liked Firebirds, so i'm voting for Les Paul

I played the Epi FB, and it's a nice guitar, but the thing just feels awkward in your arms. Personally, I'd never buy one, but the LPs are great.
I voted Firebird, just because I love the feel to them. Though I like the basses more.

"The fact has not created in me
A sense of obligation."

for $1000 you could get both (I think). I've got a Les Paul and like it very much, but I've always liked Firebirds too... You could look for a Epi Les Paul custom, they are gorgeous

I have 2 Les Pauls myself and I'm sure mostly everyone else does so I voted for the Firebird which is not an everyday thing like a Strat or Les Paul

Gear in Profile

I personally prefer Les Pauls. Thicker, warmer tone, awesome sustain. However, I played a Firebird a while ago, and loved the neck on it, and the pickups were decent too. upper fret access was awesome. And it had some tuners on it which were fantastic. Like, they seemed to be better than my Grovers.
Epiphone Elitist Les Paul. It's $150 more, but it's MIJ.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
Get an Elitelist Epi LP.

Firebird, and mod it with the extra money. Otherwise, get a Les Paul Custom Plus from Sam Ash or Sweetwater.

  • Seymour Duncan 805 Overdrive
  • Dunlop OG Crybaby Wah

Firebird, there is something about the Epi Les Pauls that I just hate, I think it's the pickups, they have nowhere near the bite that the ones in even the cheap Gibson LPs do.

I love taking a nice dip of some horse shit, so good.
Or If you would like.. save a little for a Standard Gib Sg, or buy a Faded Sg? It's different from the two you mentioned but I'm just throwing it out there if you'd like.

Money doesn't fuel good music. Passion does.

I've never REALLY liked firebirds.

Edit: So I'd say the Les Paul. But what kind?
