The Epiphone Les Pauls are generally just fine and more than enough for a beginning guitarist. Nancy Wilson of Heart plays one pretty regularly, as do other pros. At your stage of development, there's no significant difference between that and the much more expensive guitars that look the same that will affect your progress.


Doesn't really matter if you're a beginner or an advanced player. Who is going to buy something that is not comfortable to them?

Zoey try out some guitars once you have a budget, and get one that feels right to you.

Haha yeah blind tests do amuse me. You realize how little difference there is between a lot of guitars. Depending on the rig I have even mistaken a tele for a Les Paul.

Keep practicing, your hands need to adapt.

Epi guitars are good for beginners. You don't need anything too fancy when you first start out. Hell my first guitar was a terrible Peavey Raptor Plus haha.

Video comparisons don't tell everything. You need to try them in person. Only then you can know which one you like.

Oh I'm sure I'd prefer the feel of a real Gibson. Never actually played a Gibson...Hmmm...I should try to mess around on one at GC...

Then you don't want a Les Paul style guitar, you probably want a Telecaster in all honesty.
