00' 57' Reissue Goldtop Les Paul
92' R0' Historic Les Paul

yeah like im hearing two sided opinions. maybe gibson users are just biased towards gibson guitars.

all of the guitars i ahd listeed were under 700, and nice at that. but thanks anyways

Not at all... PRSs are amazing instruments. Im just not a fan of their lower models. Its the same as the lower model Gibsons... Studios for example. They are hit or miss. For every nice playing guitar... you get 7 bad ones.

I was only stgating that if you were considering getting a PRS custom 22 or some sort... against an SG. I would definately say go for the PRS. And I am an avid gibson collector

You can see from my sig that I Have a faded les paul. and it is the bottom on my list on my personal axes. all of mine are under 700 btw. the schecters are better than the fenders and the prs is better than the gibby. although the moded MIM fender is now a demon with the addons. it plays like a 1000-1500 guitar now.besides the pickguard i have added a roller nut and a wilkinson tremolo and i put locking tuners on it a long time ago.

I do agree that with prs or gibson you have to be selective with what you get as the quality changes from one to another of the same make.

so ive been looking around for some possibilities of my second guitar.

i was looking towards something nice around $700 and i was set on a gibson sg faded

but i hear around that gibson isnt to great on quality and whatnot, and that its just their history and the fact that its a gibson that make people want it. so i wanted something nice, and stumbled across the PRS line [humbuckers preferably, rock/ hardrock, etc.]

and i liked the

singlecut

custom

custom semi-hollow



what do you guys think?

thanks

oh throw out some other guitars that suit my taste.

thhhaaaaaaaaanks :]]

Gibson has great quality, I think what you mean is quality control, especially for the Special, and Studio models. Although I would try all of what you are looking at, and then decide which you like most, but try more than one Special faded SG, because they have very poor quality control.

What a huge coincidence. I have a butthole also.

I'd get the semi but that's just because I've been gassing for one lately. I have an SG Faded btw. I like the access to the frets and the general ease of use (weight, neck, board radius, etc.) but I don't think its very versatile. I'm playing on the bridge 90% of the time.

I'm really not quite sure what it is. Whenever I'm playing rhythm I usually go for a clean mellow tone and with this guitar (on the neck pup) it just doesn't deliver like a Strator a Les Paul. For some distorted/twangy lead riffage its the dog biscuits!

Hagstrom is another lesser known brand putting out quality stuff.

I've never played the Hourglass series, but I will tell you that I have always been astonished by the quality of every Michael Kelly that I've played.

I own a B-stock Michael Kelly Hybrid, and have yet to find the finishing flaw.
