I was just wondering if a Gibson Les Paul Studio Faded would be better than a Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus. The Gibson is only £180 pounds more than the Epiphone at the moment(which is £480) and for a Gibson thats pretty cheap. Is this a good deal or is it that its a rubbish guitar and im getting ripped off? Also ive seen threads about a different Gibson called Gibson Vintage Mahogany which is the same price and looks identitcal but apprently according to the posts ive seen they are two different guitars. Im in the UK and ive been looking for a Vintage Mahogany but can' t find any.

Either one would really be a great guitar, but if it were me, I would say the Gibson. Gibsons are American made while Epiphones are somewhere? made. Anyway, I'm not you, but I love my LPs, both Epiphone and Gibson.

There's much better spec'd guitars available for considerably less than the price of that particular Gibson.

ok thanks. i think i will go for the gibson, but i will need to find a shop which has them so i can try one out.

what other guitars are there that is better for the price? i like les paul shapes. i have seen a few superstrats that are better but i think superstrats are more for metal than anythign else

The LTD has similar construction, but the finish is much nicer and it has binding - looks much better to me.

I'd go for the PRS or the Washburn.
