So let’s say for my next guitar I want a LP. I have an Epi 60s tribute that I love and of course it has the 57s, some other upgraded hardware and is maybe as close as an Epi gets to a Gibson. I’ve only been playing a year so can’t break down all the differences in playability, tone etc. that so many reference. So what model and features are essential so that I’d be happy with the Gibson 5 years later when more experienced? For one, my Epi is heavy. How much (new) do you need to spend on a quality Gibson burst? I won’t be able to go Six grand! What drives the difference between $2000 model and $5000 model? Will it be soooo much better than my Epi?
