    For me, the "LP equivalent" in my grouping would have to be my SC250 Artist. I have one of the SC245 57/08 Limited's also, but that guitar sounds WAY better than any LP I have ever heard, lol. The 250 (because of the gold hardware) has the Duncan Saturday Night Special set. THAT's what did it for me. Those pickups, while nowhere near as nice as the 57/08 - which is my fav of ALL time - gives the Lynyrd Skynyrd vibe that defines "Les Paul" sound for me.

    I always think of Lynyrd Skynyrd as a mongrelized '59 Strat arguing with a mongrelized '63 Firebird, with Bernice the '59 Burst stuck in the middle, trying to break up the ruckus.

    Of course it sounds killer, Mark! It's blue! Just PM me first if you ever unload it. I still have a kidney I can sell for another guitar.
