Cons: Costs too much, fragile, particularly the neck at the headstock joint.
And if Allison from the Donnas could kick your ass, some LPs are "too heavy."

I will probably catch some hell for saying this, but I think LPs are the one guitar model that has the most variability in terms of tone. I've played some that are absolutely outstanding and have a tone unmatched by any other guitar out there. Then I've played some that sounded so muddy and muffled in terms of the notes that it sounded as if the amp were submerged in water. Having said that, I seriously think my next guitar purchase will be the new LP Standard Traditional Pro, but I'm going to make damn sure I play the one I plan on buying first just to make sure the sound is worth the $.
I don't play a lot of fancy guitar. I don't want to play it. The kind of guitar I want to play is mean, mean licks.
