    The least expensive new Gibson LP Studio is $799 street price. Not-Yikes. The VM Studio comes with Burstbucker Pro pickups... same as the Standard. The price difference is in the finish (wood grade, binding, color, etc.)... not in the feel and the tone.

    Probably, I'm sure we'll get relocated.

    Epiphone does make some nice stuff. The comparison was just to illustrate preference. People need to decide what makes them happy and just go with it. What makes me happy won't necessarily make someone else happy. It's not like you are married to a guitar for life. If it doesn't work out, go with plan B. If you buy used and buy right, then you can get all your money back.

    Yeah but I asked about the Standard not the Studio.

    It would be worth it to me to get the much higher quality US-made hardware, electronics and pickups, and the much better resale value.

    I only know a little about the higher end PRSs as a relative had an endorsement with them. They are very nice. I'm sure the SE is pretty good and I bet on CL they are around $3-400.

    I have played and owned only Strats and Teles my whole life and this past Oct. I bought my first Gibson and brand new Les Paul Junior now that will give you a gritty tone!!!. I am on the hunt now for a Les Paul Standard. I still love my Strat and Tele but imho Gibson is in another league.

    I currently have an Epi Les Paul, black with gold hardware. Looks very nice, plays nice, sounds like doo doo. I bought it with the intention of upgrading the pickups. But I played a couple of Gibson Studio models and I have decided I will only be happy with a Gibson Les Paul. $799....about the same that it would cost me for what I paid for the Epi and the pickup swap. Selling the Epi on Craig's List as we speak.

    PRS guitars play well, look great, but in my mind need new pickups. Even the American ones, but you could upgrade a little down the road if you want to.
