    Gibson Les Paul Custom or Caparison Angelus HGS...which one?

    Hi!

    I'm wondering about the differences in tone between these two guitars. I own the Angelus, but never had the chance of trying a real post-year 2000 Gibson Les Paul Custom, only imitations (Edwards, Greco, Burny, Tokai....).

    Which one would you pick?. I'm asking this because a guy offered me a trade of the LPC for my Capa

    They're pretty close to being the same, so it's going to depend on how the actual wood itself sounds more than anything else. Every piece of wood has a different sound, after all. My LPC has more snap and initial attack because of the brass nut I have on it, but it also has great girth. My Angelus, on the other hand, sounds a bit more "airy" with less in the low end and more in the midrange. I'd pick whichever one was the better deal and sounded better.

    Thanks for the answer. Based on it, I think I'll keep my Angelus, because what I look for is more mid-range focused guitars than low ended one.
