I think you can have both a Jet and LP. I didn't think Gibson had produced any kind of quality instrument in number of years, every one I picked up, LP or 335, was quite poor. Then I got a call from a dealer a couple of months ago that suggested I come in and try the 2012 LP Special they just got on trade. A freakishly good instrument and it went home with me so, I haven't lost all faith in Gibson. I like both guitars about the same, if I was shopping for a solid body single cut it would depend on which one spoke to me the loudest when I picked it up on that particular day. have to say, I do love the look of a good burst.
