    I'm not sure why I got curious about this, but I am. So---if the Les Paul didn't exist but you still love Gibson guitars, which Gibson would you play above and beyond any other model?

    My own choice---a tossup between a good SG and an ES-335/345/355.

    What's yours?

    Where's the "I wouldn't play any other Gibson"?

    If there was no Les Paul, I'd be playing another brand.

    I want a 330 but voted for Byrdland because 330 isn't on the list and I want one of them too.

    Nice to see the Byrdland get a little love, but you probably should have voted "other Gibson." I haven't seen many 330s myself, in fact I've only ever seen one, so it didn't cross my mind to single that one out.

    The 330 is the same as an Epi Casino.

    SG for me please...(but if there was no Les Paul, would there even be an SG?)
