Right now i have the Gibson Faded Sg, which i really like. But ive been wanting the les paul for a long long time, actually since before i got the gibson. So since i could sell the gibson for enough to get the epi lp i am considering it now.

so what do you guys think i should do? once i got enough money i would swap the pups in the epi, if that makes a difference.

thanks for the help

Save the money and get a Gibby LP Standard.



i wish i could! but that would be like a few years from now before i could afford that, im in college and really cant afford much.

Lp studio? might take less than a few years, y how you described it, it would only take.... (im pretending a few =3) like a year and a half

If money's tight, keep the gibson - I was in the same position about 4 months ago (Not joking - faded SG gibson, epi LP standard, university) - I sold the epi because it had nowhere near the tonal veriety of the Gibson - to my ears, it sounded twice as good and weighed half as much (as the epiphone), so whilst the les paul had sentimental value, I knew musically it was the best thing (and also I needed to pay my bills )

i think you should be well chuffed with what you have

but i cant justify spending the price of a les paul standard on a gutiar tbh

however good they are its a small fortune for me

You technically said that it weighed half as much to your ears.
