Gibson Les Paul VS PRS Bernie Marsden SE

Night and day? I never thought I'd say it but I actually prefer the sound of the Korean import over the 'real deal' 1959 Les Paul.

If I were to hear these two guitars without the backing tracks I suspect I'd go for the Les Paul but within the musical context, the PRS sounds more musical with more punch and a nice smooth bite on the top end. And, geez, you'd save yourself enough money to buy a house and a Mercedes to park in the garage.

Hats off to PRS for delivering a killer axe that anybody can afford.
