i like sg's better, but still no, because they're to headstock heavy.

my fav gibsons are the lp double cutaways.... very nice guitars. pretty much all of the things i don't like about lp's have been changed in those guitars.

i used to have a gibby lp with the slim 60s neck.. it was pretty nice, but just not quite the shred machine that my 570 is. i agree.. the pup switch is in a stupid place. i do like the look of and tone lps, but not the weight or playability.

yes, because by default, if you cant play guitar if you dont like les pauls, although, if you look back on the history of great guitarists, the majority have played strats. personally i like schecters and prs'. les pauls dont play well, in my opinion, you fucking newb, just because you might think they are the fucking bees knees doesnt mean we do, so shut your fucking cock holster.

i was agreeing, whilst adding my own insight, so relax dude, i think they are heavy and uncomfortable, shit, i went out of my way to try a few at the store, cus everyone is always telling me how great they are, i had only played like 2 before, and i couldnt find one that felt good.

you called me a pussy because i don't like heavy guitars, that's an opinion.
and you think that the things you like are the only good things.(les pauls being the "thing" here).


i don't hate lp's or anything, i actually dig alot of gibsons an lp type guitars, but lp's have alot of things i don't like about them.

1. being heavy, not a huge deal really... i can hold a heavy guitar and play a couple sets with no real problem. but i'd rather not.
2. switch location, not a huge deal either, i don't suck so bad that i can't work around it.. but why work around it when i could buy a better guitar that doesnt require me to?
3. thicker rounder neck, not a big prob, but i like faster thinner necks, if i owned a lp i'd sand down the neck like i did to my other guitars.
4. frets, only 22 on lp's, i'm used to 24, but no biggy.
5.frets again, not jumbo frets, no biggy there either, but it's just what i'm more used to.
6.single cutaway, i prefer double cutaways, but it isnt that bad to work with...
7.tone, very ballsy,thick and dead in some lp's(newer & lower end ones especially), i'm not sure why, but it can be a problem when you don't want it.

so most things are small problems with comfort.... by no means do they suck or anything, but i wouldnt buy one unless the price was right(low). no sense spending alot of dough on a guitar that isnt whats best for you.

it's kinda like a metal head buying a fender hotrod deville combo, and saying it sucks or it's no good... because to a metalhead to be a good amp it has to have alot of gain. well, why the fuck would the retard buy it in the first place if it wasnt the kind of amp he wanted?
