Comparison ELP92CD VW ELP98LTC VW

Post by brett7777 » Sun Nov 09, 2008 6:24 pm

Hi, I'm about to order a Vintage white Edwards Les Paul, has anyone had/got/played an Edwards Les Paul, and can tell me more about what they play like/sound like?
Also, which would u recommend, the cheaper one (92cd) with the glossier finish and the sh6, or the slightly more $ 98ltc which has a nitro finish and sh4? Is there a big advantage or particualr reason that the nitro finish would be more $ ?
how would these compare to playing my old esp maverick ? quality just as good as an 80's esp?
Thanx

The nitro is merely a top coat of nitro over poly

I've owned a 98 Lts QM nice but not the real LP mojo, bought a LTS130 a couple of months ago (duncan antiquities) has all the LP mojo and more, spend the extra!!

Aren't the necks on teh laquer taste models chunkier than the poly top models? I heard somewhere the poly tops are supposed to be 60's slim taper necks while the nitro tops are a 50 or 59 necks. Could someone elaborate on this please?

I would think that if u sprayed nitro OVER poly, that the two would react to each other.

Nitro sticks over poly without drama, Fender did it for years decades ago.
