This topic pops up from time to time and my answer is always the same.
For me nothing feels, plays, or sounds like a les paul.

same here, if you get the right Les Paul, it has the perfect balance of crunch and clean. Ive tried a lot of guitars when i was shopping around and i found that the Les Paul classic was my favorite by far. they stopped making Les Paul Classics, so I'm holding on to mine 'til the day i die.

I've been digging my new V. It's the stripped down Mustaine V by Dean(the VMNTX) but it plays better than any of the other guitars I've played, it's so nice. And it's got DiMarzio's in it :D

One more for the Les Paul bandwagon. Great guitars, and a great man.

Ah my god it's 2010! (Just sunk in...)

My Luna Fauna is probably the best acoustic I've held and played on. While electric is probably... SG. Maybe... I think it depends on the tone you're trying to make, but for the tone I always like to use, SG fits the criteria perfectly.

Well guitars don't matter as much to me as long as they have a good feel and decent pickups, but i'm very picky when it comes to amps and pedals.

For guitars I have a lot of favorites.

but I'll only post a few:

I like guitars with strings, 4, 6, 12 are the one's i like. I've even played a 5 string but it was kind of twangy.

I've really come to enjoy the gibson-offs like gibson rip offs like epiphone. there is just something about those fat chunky necks that make me feel at home. my main guitar has been an ES-335 dot or an SG custom 3 pickup

ahh that there is a matter of opinion.

If it walks like a duck, craps like a duck, and when i cook it up and it tastes like a goose. guess what it ain't no duck.

I'm not saying there is nothing wrong with the eppiy's but they ain't no gibsons.

I really love my G&L S500. It looks and sounds like a Strat but has a much smoother feel when I play it, more like a high end Gibson. It has more potential for tone variation than the average Strat as it has extra switch combinations giving you the additional options of neck & Bridge or all three p/upps. It also has the best floating trem I've ever used. It seldom needs retuning even without a locking nut.
I almost lost it recently in a part ex for a JS 1200. I'm glad common sense prevailed! I'd still like a JS1200 one day though.

opinion? If i make something under a different name, its still mine, right? Like Squier to fender and LTD to ESP, an Epiphone is a Gibson, but its just made slightly different with cheaper matierials.

Not a lot worse quality.
If you take the time to set up a decent guitar to play how you want it to, it will be of high quality.

More so I think the problem with the lower end guitar is the parts used on the bridge, the pickups, and the nut and tuners.

maybe some electronics could be gone through and swapped for fresh pots(always good to do hehe)
though frets are a different story, that I hope I never have to deal with! lol

after that, you may end up spending more than you bought the guitar for, but you learn how to install pickups, how to wire in switches, how to wire up pots, how to install new bridges, how to intonate, how to install a nut, and how to install tuners.
for the cost of about 100-200 bucks you could have a guitar that would rival any standard Fender and Gibson for a third the price and you would actually know how to take care of your instrument, which could save you a lot more money over the years.

you could argue that spending more on the guitar to soup it up than you bought it for is bad, but what if you bought a Gibson Les Paul Standard and needed pickups, tuners, strings, and a re-inonating process for only 200 bucks? I'd say that spending the 200+ would be worth it(2 pickups about $75 ea., strings $5, tuners $50 for the set)
right?

all a matter of opinion on quality. hell Eddie Van Halen's Frankenstrat had a knot in the body wood!

Well, I already posted for my electric favorite, but for acoustic. HA! I was at Music Emporium yesterday and played a Fender 12 string and was blown away. It literally sounded like 4 or 5 guitars in one. It was so full. Plus Fishman EQ. And it's only $399 [pretty good for a 12 string imo]. I'm either going to get it for my birthday or trade my Dean [the ML.] for it.

the term "rip off" means that someone copied / reverse engineered the gibson guitar and sold it as their own. that is very mucn not the case, as gibson OWNS epiphone.

if you buy a sammick "les paul" style guitar, that is a rip off because sammick is technically gibson's competitor. buy epiphone IS gibson, it's just marketed as a different brand. same as comparing toyota to lexus, or chevy to cadillac.

i agree that there is some difference in quality (as evidence by the price) but these are not "rip off" or "knock off" guitars, they are the exact same design with a difference in quality (both materials and workmanship).
