I have a irrational dislike of Les Pauls, I think they look rather junky no matter what.

Without for me. I always thought they looked too fancy, or proper with them.

Are you kidding? Kirk Hammett, Randy Rhoads, and yeah, Zakk Wylde among others. What do you mean "arnt metal"? Looks? Playability? Sound?

One thing I can agree with is that they are heavy. Not the best guitar for the stage if you're a little guy.

It depends
A Cherry sunburst - Without
A Flat Black - With
Etc, etc

Ive always had a dislike for pickguards, but my Ibanez looks too plain w/o one.
I say only SGs and Superstrats should have pickguards

Not a huge fan of Les Paul style guitars, but there are some that I absolutely love. But I prefer no pickguard.

so, as of now the results are: 59% to 41% with "With pickguard" in the lead; it's a very close race. now is your last chance to cast in your vote, because the result that we come up with will become guitar LAW!

Why would you buy a Les Paul? They serve better as door stops than actual guitars. I suppose if you like to wrestle bears you would like a Les Paul, or if you want a strong back. On the other hand, you could buy an ESP Eclipse, same body style, half the price for a high end model, fast neck, real pickups, less weight on your back and better looks.

All for the sake of an argument!

Without the pick guard of course.

Rock on!
