welcome! my family is originally from romania (well spain before that, then romania). my bich wouldn't exactly be a custom shop, but it is an 81 and I don't think the custom shop can do a better job than the handmade mastery of guitars made back then. No Fender can touch it, of that I am sure. fender is a low rent company in my mind that hit it big because jimi, and clapton played strats, and of course the tele is an important model as well. As both the strat and tele are "iconic", it doesn't mean they are that great. I have never owned a strat that stood up to any of my BCR's. now for Gibson, I just picked up a custom shop SG and I must say that guitar is pretty impressive. I can't say it is better or worse than a custom shop gibson because they are completely different animals. I can say that a custom shop BCR (or at least a vintage BCR) will hold its own though. I've had a couple LP's (one was a studio, so I won't count that), my 73 LP deluxe was a fantastic guitar as well, but again I wouldn't feel comfortable comparing it to my Bich. Besides the fact I love(d) them both, they could not replace eachother. If you go with a custom shop BCR (or possibly even better a Neil Moser custom shop) all I can say is that you will definitely not be dissapointed. If you go with a custom shop Gibson you will not be dissapointed. If you go with a custom shop Fender than you should kick your own ass. First off, they put custom shop on nearly every guitar now (even the ones from Mexico), so what does it mean? And to make a Fender sound really good you need to get after market pups at the very least. So why waste your time?
