Re: RG J-Customs vs. Custom Shop Gibson
Get the rope ready....
I'd go Les Paul, I like Ibanez alot, my first real guitar was an Ibanez and have owned many throughout the years and had very good experiences with all of them except the very first one. They have never let me down they always sound and played great. I currently own 1 Ibanez and have had a Jem, a Universe, an early 80s Destroyer 2, I currently have an S540 LTD that I have had longer than any other guitar and I would go with the CS LP.
I have found that Les Pauls are the perfect guitar for me, I currently own 4.
I love set necks, fixed bridges, prefer 22 frets to 24, I can work with only 2 humbuckers, they play great and I think that Les Pauls are the perfect visual guitars, especially with the open book headstock.
WHich is better? That's for you to decide and I hate giving that answer, but you know what kind of guitar you need and what each offers.
