I can get a Gibson Les Paul Studio and a PRS SE Custom 24 for about the same price. First off, I already own 2 Les Pauls (Gibson Tribute and Epiphone Custom). They’re my main guitars, and I love them. I want to add a White Les Paul to my collection, so the Studio is perfect for that. But I’ve never owned a PRS before, and I’ve always wanted one. I can’t afford a Standard PRS, so it has to be an SE Custom 24, as that’s what’s available. I mainly play Hard Rock to Metal. I don’t care about versatility, I just like straight tone. I barely play clean, so it’s all about that ballsy high gain tone for me.
