    It's that last $100 that makes the difference though.

    I can’t believe the LP costs so much.

    Meh....I haven't yet. I find my SC245 to be what I want to hear with that type of guitar - plus I can play it much easier.

    Agree, you'll hear what you grew up with, but you'll fight it to stay in tune.

    A Heritage H-150 is still cheaper, even after the 2018 price increase brought about by their new owners.

    I browsed some H150's when I was shopping around for an LP. I've heard nothing but great things

    They should charge more for them and say “only a Les Paul sounds like a Les Paul”.

    I dunno, I have the same smug indifference as when I hear about mad cow disease... doesn’t really effect me.

    Does it have anything to do with Henry Jerkowitz? Is he still there?

    Everybody hears things differently. I sold my LP Standard, nd was honestly not sad to see it go. I hope whoever bought it enjoys it. I didn’t think much of it.

    I don't care if they're 100 cheaper than an epiphone, my Mccarty is the bomb. Somebody else can have them.

    I'm out

    Nobody makes “core” or production models with the quality or consistency of PRS. BUT, R9s since 2013 are the best LPs yet. The custom shop models are really good.
