^ just about ninja'd me. AdamGM, please review the link JoeFlips posted and post the info required. We aren't being nosy asking where you live - just give us a general country.

Also, official manufacture sites don't post accurate prices. Those are the prices right off the line without the discounts from a major gear retailer like Musician's Friend.

You have another thread asking about the Epiphone and I noticed this comment...

So you could get a real Gibson for cheaper than the Epiphone.

And if coil split is what you want, maybe look at HSS Strats (bridge humbucker, neck and middle single coil). Single coil will sound more like single coil than coil split humbucker (- you don't say ). So if you need both humbucker and single coil sounds, maybe look at HSS Stratocasters or Ibanez RG or S series or something like that.

But you should really try some guitars. We can't tell you if you like the feel and sound of a Gibson. Or maybe you are a Fender guy. Blues and metal are wide genres with lots of different kind of sounds.

are you even reading this thread? you keep quoting me but you haven't answered a single question i've asked or one that others have.

answer the questions so you can actually get some helpful information that may lend itself to you gaining knowledge that you could use in buying a good guitar for your wants/needs.

or waste your hard earned money on a made in china epi. have at it.

i can sit here and go back and forth about how communication works all day long. i have plenty of left overs, guitar tabs and a new amp. come at me with your ignorance of how the english language works and how human beings communicate.

want help? answer the questions asked or prepare to see more cat pictures than you ever hoped for.

this is simple stuff, we ask, you answer.

i'm assuming this was asked of me.

what i "would do" and what i "recommend" to others is two vastly different things.

for around $1000 the best "off the shelf" les paul "imo" is this one. i played one yesterday and this guitar kicks so much ass it's not even funny.

if someone says, "but it's a couple hundo over my budget"? then save a couple hundo more. it's worth it. otherwise regret it hit hard down the road.

^Agree. Always try before you buy, we can't tell if the guitar is for you.

By saying "So you would get a real Gibson for cheaper than the Epiphone." I meant that it's possible to get a real Gibson for the same price. I maybe should have used "could" instead of "would." Sorry for confusion.

EDIT: fixed.

yes some gibson guitars right now are priced below the cost of some epiphones.

edit: here in the USA that is.

I just finished building this one for my company, it has 5 different Humbucker based coil positions
super punchy and warm for jazz and blues, but very clear and open tone for metal/rock.
I take extreme pride in my builds, they are unique and versatile.
They are around the same price as a new Gibson or PRS custom, only my guitars and basses are handmade to your specifications.

Check out Alpha Genus Guitars for more details...

Just get a LP. Epiphone is usually cheaper but if you can find a gibson cheap get it.
