Les Paul or ... ?
Advice needed here, please.
I've had a UV777BK for 6 years. I love it to bits and I will never ever part with it.
The thing is I'm currently looking for a 6 string guitar and I'm in the position to make a pretty good deal on a Gibson Les Paul Standard.
However, after having played the Les Paul in question it seems that I would need quite a lot of time to get accustomed to it : compared to the UV's neck, the LP 50s neck absolutely sucks.
But that guitar sounds good, is very beautiful and has some cachet and presence Ibanez have not, IMHO.
At first I was thinking of buying a JEM, but I get the feeling it would not be different enough to the UV, and I can't justify buying some "6 string UV".
I'm looking for a guitar really different in character to the UV, both in terms of sound and look, but somehting that is at least as enjoyable to lay the fingers on.
Right now the solution would be to fit a JEM neck on the Les Paul ... (laugh).
Should I buy the Les Paul and really try to get used to the neck or should I try something else before making a choice and let the deal pass ?
Thanks in advance.
