I really liked the Menace. It sounds like a Les Paul but has a satin finish which I find a lot more playable than a gloss finish (just a personal preference). Aesthetically though I didnt like the routes in the body behind the bridge.
If you are after a more raw Gibson, which im presuming by your choice of the Menace, the BFG might be a good consideration. Its relatively cheap, it has the best feeling neck of any Gibson ive played, the pickup combo is great (Burstbucker 3 and a P-90) and in real life it doesnt look too bad! As someone who babies his guitars I really want to pick one of these up so I can just let loose with it without feeling bad :D
