    Hello everyone!

    I have a nice Telecaster custom shop which I want to trade. I have two offers that I like and I don't know which one to choose :

    - First one is a 6-digits Art Historic Gibson LP Custom 1957 VOS 1997 black beauty. Mint condition for the age.

    - The other one is a nice Gibson ES-335 Trini Lopez limited run 2014 Wine red (1 of 250). I already have a ES-335 63', but I like the Trini and it's a limited edition.

    I know that i'm on a les paul forum :), but which one would you choose? (value, feel, sound, play) etc..

    PS: I already tried a LP custom but not the Trini

    Thanks!

    Both sound like great guitars. I'd probably take the Trini because I like ES guitars. (have a couple).

    This must be a very nice Tele. I'd be interested to see it. :)

    Custom. But by all means, try them both if you can.

    I think I'd keep the Telecaster if I had to choose between the 3.

    Depends on the style of music you're looking to play on it.

    Custom for the win. Easy choose for me. Gotta go with what you like best though.

    I already have another Custom Shop Tele, which I like more. And i'm a Gibson guy! Thanks for all your comments. I will try both for sure before!

    I'd go Trini personally, but i don't think you could go wrong either way

    I really like the LP Custom. The only thing is there is no COA that comes with it...the #S/N is 791109

    Custom. COA is no big deal but some people have a fit if its missing.

    Gibson didn’t do COAs in 1997

    True. That’s a nice custom. I’m changing my vote.

    both are cooler than the tele so it's win win... i'd go with the trini since i'm a semi hollow junkie and it's a rare model to boot.
