I agree with you, I know a lot of 24 fret players that don’t like les Paul’s for that reason, if they want 24 they should buy a prophecy
I don’t stay away from them because they don’t sound like a les Paul, that to me would be ridiculous. If I want a les Paul sound I’m buying a les Paul
First is the feel of them, the necks are sticky to me, now I’ve never done the 4000 grit to one but they’re very sticky.
The body also feels really weird too, I’m not sure if it’s because it’s thinner than a les Paul or if it’s the carve of the body but it just doesn’t feel comfortable.
