    What is the difference between these. I was told that the LX is an upgraded version, but noticed that it costs $400 less. What is the deal with these two models?

    The Euro's body is solid maple while the LX has an alder body with a maple top.

    So, I guess my question is more along the lines of: Is the "upgraded" LX really better than the more expensive Euro original?

    Not really. It's just that the price of figured maple recently went up substantially.

    Apart from body wood, both models are the same.

    I've only had the opportunity to try a few off the rack at a few local stores and I'd take the Regular Euro any day over the LX. To my ears, they just sound better/fuller -- bigger tone window (both played through a Mesa Big Block w/ 6x10 cab I think it was??!). Just another point of view.

    Cheers,
