I have a Epi LP Standard, left handed (among others). Recently I found a guitar shop in Houston, Texas that caters to left handed players and had the opportunity to test drive a Gibson LP. While I found the Gibson to be a fine guitar, I can't understand why it is worth around four times as much as my Epi. Granted I only played it for about 20 minutes, but I really didn't see much difference between the two. Could someone please explain the difference to me? Thank you.
I never forget anything I remember.
Gibson has hand selected wood, and nitrocellulose finish put onto it. And Gibsons are made in America, and it's alot more expensive to make stuff in America.

You will be paying for the gibson name a bit, the price gap is a little unfair, but like that guy said, better wood, better construction quality, oh and ace pickups

O yea I forgot to mention the pickups are great too, but they only contributes to a few hundred $$$. And I also forgot Gibsons come stock with Klusons, or Grovers. Don't know what Epi's got.

O ok, Epiphones are great, the only reason I don't have one is because I'm saving for a Gibson and I don't want to have to spend $600 on and Epiphone and it take me that much longer for a Gibson LP.

My intent was not a verses thread, sorry if I misnamed it. Being left handed I had NEVER before had the opportunity to play a Gibson. I was mearly seeking advice before spending all that money.

If i had a choice between a Gibby LP standard and an Epi LP standard the Gibson would be my choice.

All the epi's i've used are usually just bland compared to gibsons unless you find a good one, like my g400 had better acoustic qualities than the other epi's i've used.
I hated the Gibson LP Doublecut Special I tried. It just felt really uncomfortable and rough.

I got a nice blues sound out of it, though, and it wasn't particularly expensive either - only about $650 (they were on a stimulus sale).
