I don't know if a couple extra frets are worth almost $1700.00. I bought the double cutaway LP because I'm a fan of double cut guitars (SG's, etc.), and I really like the tone that the LP DC has. If you've gotta' have double cut guitars, like me, then $1650.00 is a small price to pay for a LP DC. The AAA flame top on mine is beautiful, too. The fact that it's a double cut Les Paul is really the reason to buy one IMO, as long as you can live with the fact that it only has one volume and one tone control.
I've played a bunch of them, and the only ones I've liked are the fadeds. The rest, though really pretty, just didn't have enough guts to their sound. For some reason or maybe a variety of reasons, they have a very different sound than normal les pauls.
