    ....not quite....;) my wishlist includes an LP Std and a Taylor acoustic... both are out of reach for a few years at least... but yes, expensive concert tix push them even farther away.
    Btw I was still sitting on the grass in Hyde Park, just closer to the stage. ;)

    Try a LP Studio instead of a Standard. Much cheaper, every bit as good, but won't kill your back. And much better ergonomic design than an SG (if you ignore the pickup selector switch :rolleyes:) - the knobs are where a Strat player's hands expect them to be.

    The new Standards are weight relieved, I believe. But I’ll look all options when I’m in a position to shop.

    Good advice.. I've a LP Goldtop Tribute (basically a Studio) with P90s.. best Gibson Les Paul I've ever owned.

    However, if I was in the market for a Les Paul now I wouldn't even consider a Gibson, I'd buy a Tokai.. :thumb:

    I (of course ;)) totally agree with that.

    No neck dive, no tuning problems, no structural problems.

    I had a Tokai with P90s - an LS85S, I think. It was much heavier than the Gibson & had a significantly fatter neck. Once I got the Gibson, I sold the Tokai to former ST member quiggy,.

    Yes, that's how good I think this fairly cheap Gibson is.

    I had a Bacchus Strat. Excellent quality, nitro finish, big, warm sounding pickups. But once again, it had a fat old neck that didn't suit me so I had to let it go.

    Do they make SGs?

    I don’t think so. I was looking at their LPs.
    But I’m just window shopping anyway. There’s a store in Paris that carries them, apparently, so someday I could go check them out if I want.

    It's the same as with many Japanese brands - make sure it's from Japan! I think they have some of their guitars made in China now. They (meaning Momose/Deviser etc) seem to use many different brand names, including this one.
