Gibson Les Paul Studio/PRS

Would like opinions on The Gibson Les Paul Studio and the Paul reed Smith guitars for Blues. Have been playing an SG for 2 years now and ready to buy another. Opionions would help me decide. Mostly interested in Blues and clasic rock

Thumbs up

There's no comparison a 'Gordon' not Paul Reed Smith wins everytime and you got the benefit of having coil tapped humbuckers all mated to a British handbuilt guitar.

Cheers Phil

I've been researching the same thing. If you're not buying one of the big dollar Prs guitars they are made in Korea actually. However I've been comparing the Prs se245 to the Gibson lp studio and I like the sound and versatility of the se245 more. The quality of the finish is pretty sweet as well.

I'm not sure what's being posted here but, whatever... PRS gutars are made in Maryland, USA. In the past (currently?), there have been Asian-made Gibsons (and other brand names) made for the Asian market...I don't know if any of those were imported to North America.

Slipin Lizard eventually gets it mostly right
I think he's got it right... review on Musician's Friend website says the PRS SE 245 is made in Korea. Asian Gibsons?... I know there were a few knock-offs in the past that were supposedly well made, but latest craze seems to be made-in-China Les Pauls that cost less than $300 shipped. YouTubers split... some say they sound like crap, others say they sound really good... I'd doubt they'd compare well to real Les Paul, but I do also feel that some of the Les Paul pricing is getting a little bit out of control.

Ooops!

I suppose you could say we are both correct; PRS guitars are made in Stevensville, MD, PRS SE's are made Korea. But that's not what I meant and I indeed was wrong...some PRS guitars are Korean-made.

Sheesh...and I even have a relative designing gear for 'em in MD...
