    Firebird Need advice on up coming purchase

    Hey all! Long time listener, first time caller.

    I have played a mim strat for several years now and I'm ready to move on. I just got a new Marshall Origin 20, which I love! I have played and narrowed my choices down to a new Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus which uses the classic '57 pick-ups, a used Firebird respectively a 2002 and a 2013 both with Steinberger tuners one, the '13 is stock pick-ups and the 2002 has mojo Winter's in it and lastly a used 2017 Gibson Les Paul Gold Top Tribute T. Frankly, I'm stuck as I think all four a very nice guitars and sound very good. I'm by no means a professional player. I play to blow off steam and jam out with friends for fun. I play mostly 70's classic rock with a heavy dose of Skynyrd. I concentrate more on the rhythm parts of songs.

    I'm 6'7" and have long fingers but not fat finger tips and I seems like the firebird suits me better in terms of size but tone wise It has a tele vibe which I don't hate by any means but that's whats hanging me up. I like the tone of the Lp's

    Thoughts? Advice?

    All are pretty good. If you are chasing the definitive LP sound only, I might lean towards the gold top. If you plan to keep learning and bettering your best music, I'd go for guitar [Firebird] that feels the best and fastest. The Firebird tone is a nice one, and can work with anything [same for the LP tone].
