    Buy the same guitar with the same specs made by Edwards. It's cheaper, and in my opinion better quality. I recently purchased a lefty gold-top P90 Edwards LP for around $699 that was spectacular. It made my Agile GT look pretty green in color when you compare them.

    Yep, there are certainly less expensive options. And remember too that MSRP/advertised retail with Gibson/PRS/others is not usually what you pay. I'm a fan of the full gloss finish and binding/etc that you get on the standard/trad/classic, but the tributes are a definitely a true LP at heart.

    I'm just happy to see them going back to standard specs and having a P90s offering in the top line USA models.

    It's pretty amazing that you can get a MIA Gibson Les Paul for about the same price as other companies are selling Asian-made guitars....such as:

    Now, I love the look of that FretKing. And I'm guessing it's a nicely made guitar....maybe in some ways as nicely-crafted as the MIA Gibson....but still, knowing the difference in labor costs, and knowing the Gibson is made with better quality components....It would be hard for me to choose the FretKing over that Gibson.

    Definitely like those. But since I've got all the P-90s I can want currently, $2K is too much for me to get GASsy.

    Hot damn! That blue one really turns my crank. Pity about the slim taper neck though. I couldn't afford this regardless though, so I'll stick with my Tokai gold top I suppose.

    I like the Pelham Blue Classic with P90s (I'd like to remind the guitar industry that just because an LP has P90s, that doesn't mean it has to be a gold-top, or black!). But I wish they painted the whole guitar Pelham Blue (I guess that's how they can offer these at such a 'cheap' price? ;))

    It doesn't matter anyway... I don't think I'll ever spend more than a thousand dollars on a guitar again... And even $1K is a stretch.
