I own 3 Les Pauls: A Standard Raw Power (best mass produced, under $1500, stock electric guitar tone I have ever heard), a Studio and a Cherry Burst Custom Lite. I really like the custom lite, not just because it’s lighter, it’s more comfortable to play and it’s a nice variation on the regular Les Paul with no sacrafice in tone. It’s a really sweet guitar. I highly recommend trying one out, if you can find one.
