After the "why is prs guitars your favorite" thread, it got me thinking. What if I like my LP more than I think I do? Hmmm. I put a new set of strings on the LP and took it with me saturday night. After our first set I put it on. Everything I dislike about that guitar seemed to be magnified. Hard to reach upper frets, small feel, dual vol pots, toggle placement. Even though I think it has great tone, I simply dont like it. I used it for one song and quickly went back to cu24.

I have considered selling it before but after last night, why should I keep it? Why did I think I wanted it in the first place? This is the second LP I have owned and im right back where I was the first time, sell it.

What is it about LPs that appeal to people? Is the gibson marketing that good? Are LPs the Harley-Davidson of the guitar world? Got to have one so you can brag about it? I dont know for sure but I can say the LP desire for me is OVER. I will never buy one again. I LOVE my prs guitars and look forward to another purchase in the future.

I think LPs sounds great but they are usually too heavy for me.One of my fav guitarsounds of all time is Claptons tone on the first Cream record.I can definitely understand why LPs appeal to people.Personally i prefer PRS,both in design and feel.

Well, not wanting to play it for more than a song is a pretty good indicator to let it go. If you like that tone, you might consider a McCarty, DGT or a Ted. That would give you a similar tone but with some of the features you like about PRS.
