I'm considering purchasing an LP style guitar, but I don't know enough about them to make a wise decision. I know that they have a shorter scale (24.75 inch?) than a Strat or Tele. I know that Gibson is the prime name, but some of the Epiphones are well thought of. There are so many choices and in such a wide range of prices. I hate to make a decision purely on cost as I know that isn't necessarily directly related to quality. I've seen Studio, Pro, Traditional, Muse, and some signature models as well. Can anyone point me to a resource that explains the difference?
