Hello, it's my firs post here, hope Im not being an ass with this so subjective post. I live in brazil, and taxes here make it impossible to buy a Gibson for me, so I have a oportunity of a friend going to USA and bringing me a Les Paul next month, so I can not test the guitars side by side to decide myself. Is the studio 50's tribute really good as they are saying? I played one in my local store and loved it! but its hard to tell when you play only for 30-50 minutes, with a not-that-loud amp. Im a strat man, and didnt got unconfortable with the 50's neck, but in a live situation, when i change from my strat to the Paul, will it be a problem? Would be better to get another guitar with 60's profile? I can also get or the Traditional, or the Standard, that, depending on the colours, I found them at 1.800 dollars. My question is, the 1000 aditional dollars on the standard or Traditional really worth it over the 50's tribute? I have no intention of becoming a professional musician, but have been playing often, on medium sized gigs at the best pubs and nightclubs of my city, so Im looking for a gear improvement, that is really reliable and can stand some rough time. I have no idea of when I will get another chance of someone bringing me from USA, so it will be my main guitar for a long time. Thank you!
