    Currently, I have a LP Classic, LP Faded Standard and LP Standard. If I were to get just 1 more Les Paul, what would be good? R7, R8, Custom, Deluxe??? As you see, I'm trying to stay below 2K used if possible.

    You should be able to find a good used R7 or R8 for a little under 2k. Customs too, as long as it's not an historic Custom. So, between those three choices, it's all up to you! Good luck!


    Almost forgot about Deluxes. Those too!

    How about a Special?

    You need a P90 LP way more than you need a fourth humbucker equipped Les Paul. You can pick these up on ebay all day long for between $700 to $900. That leaves you enough cash to replace the P100s with some real singles. Mine's a '95 that currently sports a set of Lindy Fralins.
