Hardware, pups, necks, bridges. Probably best to check the specs gibson provides.

Binding?

Binding?




See the stripped down wood on the side? That looks white-ish Binding.

Or on a finished guitar:



The white/cream-ish stuff around the outside.

The white trim around the edge of the guitar.

Like this one you can see it on the body.

There is no difference they all suck.

jkjk, studio is supposed to be the same without the looks, but really its just a guitar with crap components and woods.
The standard has slightly better pickups and tuners, maybe better woods, and a maple cap(which is prolly not thick at all).

The standard plus, has stuff like flame maple tops, it is the "plus top"

The Standard is the best deal. I'd go used though, Gibson is price-raping Epi as of recent - I bought my standard for $399, now they're $549 for the same model. I could buy a set of duncans and still beat the price! No epi LP's have a true maple top, only a veneer- all except the Slash Gold top.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Well, now a Standard Plus top goes for $649, and a Custom goes for $799 on musiciansfriend.....I think that's a result of the economy. A devalued dollar means that it costs "more" to pay for overseas labor. So you're paying the same as you would a year ago on the world market, but you're paying more in U.S. dollars because more are needed to even out the exchange rate overseas. Hope that makes sense.
'Cause I have done it before and I will do it some more....
