...really? Or - the title could be "I'm a total jerk!!!" Here's what happened. I was looking for a not-so-expensive-alternative to my Burny for travelling purpose. Something that sounded good, was fun to play on but could take a scratch or two without me going crazy. I almost bought a $600 "Epiphone Les Paul Custom - Ebony w/ Mirror Pickgaurd Ltd. Ed." which is on a sale camaign here in Sweden now. Original prize is said to be $1140. But instead I fell head over heels for a Gibson LP Classic and bought that, thinking I should downgrade my Burny to travel-axe and beater. I'm now sheepishly back on square one - can't really toss any of these beauties around like i forsee (yes - I do have good hard cases for both, but I'm seeing this travel guitar being treated a little rough all the same), so I'm again looking at the Epi LP Custom. Any of you know this and how good is it? Really? Would an Epi Std or Studio do just as well? TIA for any advice!
