The recent price drop in Les Paul standards has got me a bit curious. Do you think the standards are that much better than LP Studios? What exactly are the differences aside from looks?

I'm guessing better wood and hardware. Im not sure though.

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

Better quality check on the standard, that's for sure.

i've owned both models in the past. I think the diffences are cosmetic, on the standard you get edge binding and the gibson logo is inlaid rather than stuck on. i really couldnt tell any difference in playability or sound.

i think the pickups may be different.

Myth.

The main non- cosmetic differences are the pickups (Burstbuckers aren't better than the 490R and 498T, just lower- output) and the maple top on the Standard. And, the Studio only comes with a 50's neck.

i gotta disagree, the standard i bought (new) not well set up at all, i had to have the nut filed down for one thing.

Hmmm you guys are making $800 more for a standard sound silly. I spose I need to get off my lazy ass and see for myself.

Most frequently the best solution.

Check out the Epiphone Elitists. About the same price of the Studio, and just as good as a Standard.
