Ibanez rgt 220h or gibson m3? Which sound more like fat tone of les paul?

Anyone who tried these two beautiful guitar? I found these on buy and sell website. Ibanez rgt220h has rosewood fingerboard and maple neck through with mahogany wings on body with v7 and v8 pups while gibson m3 has mahogany body with set neck of maple and maple fretboard with gibson dirty fingers pups on neck and bridge. Which one sounds more like a fat tone with focused low as gibson les paul standard? I need your feedback so i can decide which one is more like a gibson stuff because they both have a mahogany wood. I want the floyded version guitar that making a les paul tone because i love the fatness and sustain. Thanks

I know you are looking for a Les Paul "fat" tone but could you give some examples as in songs, or guitar players of the tone you're looking for?

Probably neither sound like a Les Paul, because they're very different, but the Gibson with its set neck and mahogany body probably has a marginally greater similarity.

A lot of the tone will also come from your amp and any effects you use, so it's more about crafting the overall tone you're after, rather than simply trying to get one guitar to sound like another. Dont forget a Les Paul through a cranked Marshall sounds very different to a Les Paul through a clean Fender Twin...

This ^, also Les Pauls sound different from each other, i've played Les Pauls that sounded thin and harsh and others that sounded fat and warm, honestly when i hear someone asking for a Les Paul "tone" they're usually thinking of a Marshallesque compressed overdriven tone.

For me tones are like colors, the amp/cab/effects dictate the overall color and the guitar the different shades within the color of the amp, you want a "Blue" tone get an amp that can get you there and try different guitars to see what shade of that your like.
