    I played a Brent sig a couple weeks ago for about 30 seconds, neck was so fucking big I didn't have the desire to play it much longer than that, which was a bummer, I love the look.

    Not to me. The type of guitar, weight, neck, style, and the tone you can pull from it all make a difference, in my opinion.

    Joey said something to me once... "buy the guitar that inspires you to play."
    All I can ask is that I suck a little less each time I pick up my guitar...

    No other manufacturer can churn out high priced duds quite like Gibson. For every $2000 Les Paul I've played that was awesome, I've probably played two dozen complete lifeless planks.

    To be fair, the last few recent Epis I've played (Including a Thunderhorse Explorer that I *really* wanted to like, a mid-range LP, and one of the small-body semi-hollows) have been shitpiles that generally looked nice but had a range of issues from the dreaded "dull, dead plank" to problems with frets, action, and finishing. Play before you buy, or make sure Jeff has approved the return policy first.

    A few people keep saying that around here, but in practice i have not found that to be true in My experiences. I tried a few new pauls at a couple shops this weekend and they all felt solid as fuck. In fact, almost every gibby iv pulled off a wall in the last few years feels solid to me.

    Given the large amount of Gibsons that are 51% made in the US, I'll have to disagree.

    The more expensive stuff can be good, but don't forget the myriad of sub-$1000 "made in America" crap.

    So true.

    I think us humans are highly influenced by the name / history of a brand, especially when it's been there for a long time and it's part of our "culture". Even if it rest on its past glory la Gibson. Everybody knows that guy that firmly believes Gibson is still great and still make the greatest guitars in the world because he owns that great 67 LP, right?
