I do think it's great, maybe not fancy or shaped and shiny, but great nonetheless.
What more you'll get with a higher end Gibson than a Studio, is just that, fancy and blingy. Cream bindings, nice fretboard and headstock inlays, etc. Nothing that makes it play or sound better.
Get a Studio...
Standard has Probuckers 2&3, Classic has Alnico Classics. Both have A2 magnets. Classic have a fairly low output at 6K compared to the Probuckers 7.75 / 8.75.
Have you tried playing with the Classics height ?
I was offered one (mint) in a trade, that would be $$ favorable to me (would cost me $250 CAD). Would be for home use only.
I am not a Marshall connoisseur. I once had an Origin 20 and didn't bond with it.
What's the good and the bad of it ?
If I don't like it, are they easy to sell ?
