    Depending on how much you spend, the PRS and Fujigen single cuts may be 2 and 3. I haven't played a Gretsch Electromatic Jet, but they look nice too.

    But we're talking about "generally accepted" rankings, not actual quality, because everyone knows that MIA>MIJ>MIK>MIC ;)

    The PRS guys seem to love their “LPs,” even separating the pre-lawsuit versions from the later ones. That said, they seem to have precious little regard for any other brand, so take that for what it’s worth. I can say that as a rule, PRS guitars are mostly quite lovely and very well made, regardless of their original source.

    There isn't such a thing I'm afraid... Look around for a guitar that you like, whatever it is.
    The only obvious thing most expensive guitars have, are beautiful wood pieces.
    I like that, but it's irrelevant to ''quality''.

    only those two brands offer 'Les Paul' Models
    all others are 'Single Cuts'
