It's a Joe Bonamassa signature guitar.

I'm going to be THAT guy and say I never understood these types of polls. (Choose my guitar, choose my guitar color, choose my next .....)

If you want something badly enough, there is no second choice.

Do you really want either of them?
Hey homie, I'm not literally asking you to choose my guitar. I can make my mind up myself but at the same time i like to talk things through with people who may have experience with something i do not.

I don't know much about gibson guitars even though they DO appeal to me. I also have never owned the electric xii nor have i picked one up in my hands (this is something we have not been able to do where i am from due to the pandemic .... yes as of now you STILL CANNOT go into store and try something out). i would consider this purchase a lot of money so i want to go into it with some degree of knowledge into what i am getting.

talking about guitars with other guitar people is kinda the point of these forums LOL.

Actually according to the forum rules he does.

It's funny i thought the opinions would be a little more split, but it's all very one sided.
Given the demographic of this site, I'm not surprised at all.

True story: Before I knew much about guitars or music (or life) in general, I thought Les Paul was the name of a city, like St. Paul, Minnesota...

Fender XII is a great thing to have but a bit more specific in use , I think you knew that.
Les Paul’s are more versatile, especially if you can split the humbuckers .
I have both and still pick up a Jazzmaster or Strat more often than not.
The Fender may retain a bit more value or not , hard to say. Have fun either way.

Resorting to name calling to make a point is ok I guess?

Well, before this turns into a bitter and personal fight, I think that any guitar player should spend some time with a Les Paul, and if someone is new to Gibson then that's a no-brainer also.

My vote on this was simply out of the two, which was a nicer guitar.

thanks everyone for offering your 2 cents.

i have pretty much eliminated the les paul from the running based on the advise here, so it definitely helped out.

See- the point here is that he doesn't know that we're controlling his mind.

THE WILL OF THE FORUM HAS CONQUERED ONCE AGAIN.

By all means, get the Les Paul if you're the sort of pussy that would enjoy that.

Now... who were the perverts that voted Les Paul, and what should we do to them?
