Don't get me wrong, I use the trem for effects and a bit of flutter, but for 2, maybe 3 songs. It's also such a bitch to change tunings. I go from standard(drop 1/2 step) to drop c#(drop d down 1/2 step) pretty consistently. If it were a true gibson, just a studio model would suffice(maybe a used standard) but I've actually considered picking up an epiphone lp custom for $699. What do you guys think of the epiphone model(the nicer customs w/ flame top)?
Get a Les Paul. I've got god knows how many Ibanez guitars, I dunno, 15 or something, but only one Gibson Les Paul. And you know what? It's a much more solid guitar, and most of the time better tone too. I'm the same, not bothered about 24 fret or trems, sometimes I use a trem, hardly ever go as high as 24 fret.

I love the feel and the weight of the les paul, the soild body and set neck. Makes me think that if ever I did get another Ibanez, I'd try one of the thru necks mahogany body prestige models - about the only model with appeal left. (the others all look as dull as each other in dark blue or black)
