Have to agree with Rod 100% - I picked up a super clean used '09, '50's Tribute, Black Satin finish Les Paul w/2XP90's - great, great sounding Les Paul (the P90's never get woofie on the low end and all the top end sparkle is there, they are single coils after all). It had a very mildly relic'd thing (a little tiny thin line of finish worn off to see the mahogany underneath on the inside, back edge of the top bout, is all). I can't undersell how great this guitar sounds, and it's new enough as a used guitar to have been through the Gibson factory pleck process - it's supposed to be "relic'd" but from the front, it does not look like it, but the satin finish does look like it's just an old Gibson that has not seen a polish cloth in a long while. Now, I also got a PRS SE Single Cut Soapbar 2XP90 - used it was $299. It's every bit as good as the Gibson LP Special I had. You can't do any better for a p*ssed-off mahogany slab guitar, really, it's a very simple formula for a guitar. But even for a Korean build, it's got all the PRS brand basics, killer neck, clean frets, perfect graphite nut, very tight finish, and the hardware is good enough that you don't have to start changing stuff out as soon as you bring it home. So shop with your ears, but think about giving these two particular models an audition - great value guitars, from opposite ends of the build spectrum, that deliver great feel and the tone.I've had both the guitars you're lookin at.. Get the Gibson... A much bigger bolder sound.. Great for live band use. Better wood as well. The satin finish Gibsons sound great. Highly recommended.
