Deciding between these 2. Everything pretty close as far as weight, feel, etc. The Washed Cherry is a tad lighter at 8.5, the Filthy Lemon 8.9 if memory serves me.

So down to the Washed Cherry or Filthy Lemon-

Unfortunately... or fortunately...
you're the one that has to make that decision.

Go with your gut feeling.
It's a heart and balls thing, not a brain thing.

the grain on that first one is pretty unique, i'd go with that one. 8 lbs 9 oz or 8.9 lb? big difference

Tough choice. Have someone else play both of them for you, and see if you can make your decision based on that.

Both equally good.
hard to believe that with all the Les Pauls I have gone through.....I just don't go by looks period...its the sound I am after....and the looks don't make you play better!!! when I am playing I don't look at my guitar at all...but hey get the cherry one it will fade anyway

yes its always the sound that matters!!! not the friggin look..agree get another opinion if you can and let a buddy play it and listen closely to the nuance...its really hard to get a fine sounding Les Paul its a crapshoot till you find one you won't part with ... intonation, playability and TONE is the key factors
