The prices in $Can. are pretty similar, but i would like some of your opinions
On what? They're good basses for what they do. I would personally go for the Rick, but I have no idea what you need your bass to do. What're you looking for?
Not a fan of the LP's. I would definetly go for the Ric. Great basses.
Not a fan of Gibson basses.
Not a fan of Rics.
I'd still go for the Ric.
I think you'll have better tone and better retention of value.
I find Rics hard to play but the tone is so.....Ric. I find the Ric tone very sharp through an all tube head. What are you playing? Rock? Salsa? Emo?
Riiiick! I haven't heard too much about Gibson basses, but Ricks are awesome.
"More Thundering Tone Than You Can Handle?"
I'm generally pretty receptive towards Gibson basses: Love the Grabber and the Ripper. But the couple of Les Paul basses I've tried have been terrible! Tone like warmed over farts, heavy as hell and just generally bad.
Go with the Ric! I love the tone and bite of rics, I don't find them hard to play at all, indeed they're a treat.
I've heard of terrible neckdive and heavieness from the LesPaul... put it looks drop-dead-gorgeuos and assumely has a nice rock-tone.
The rick has "the rick-tone" and is pure sex.
I think I'll be different and go for.... no wait, what am I saying? Ric. 100%.
Played both... Had a '76 4001 and own a '99 4003S5. The LP is a nice to have, the Ric is a requirement!
4003 all the way! Forget about the LP.
w0rD to the Rickenbrutha!

without question, get the Rick. I own a T-bird, but generally reach for one of my Ricks.
Hey BassyBill...LOVE the Glenn Hughes icon. Nice to see someone in the know!
I would choose the Rick kind sir.
