Right, I plan on buying my first PROPER guitar soon (I bought the ony I currently play on for £10 :eek.

I'm a lefty and I don't really want to spend more than £1000 on a guitar, preferably less, so I think the Les Paul Studio would do me quite nicely.

Can you guys offer some advice?

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

The fact I don't know what on earth any of those are should give you an idea of just how much of a guitar noob you're dealing with here.

They are the names of guitar companies, Google them and you should find their sites. BTW, if this is your second guitar, I wouldn't spend Gibson prices on it. Save that until later

Might sound odd but I'd really like one that'll last me as long as I wish to keep using it (a long time) which is why I initially thought a LP Studio might be good.

And no, he's not saying they are better than a real Les Paul, but they are all quality guitars he named. Buying a $1000 Gibson isn't going to make you play any better, a good guitarist can make a $150 axe sound good. What you need to be looking for is quality, not names and prices. There are plenty of companies that make cheaper guitars than Gibson, but still have good quality. Check out Schecter.

No. I use my amp from when I used to play bass.

This is making me sound like a total shambles so far!

in that case the best guitar in the world wont sound great and you wont be gigging

your priority is something which plays nicely, great pickups or looks arent a necessity

i'd be looking at highway 1/MIM fenders, PRS SE series, Epiphone Elitist series.

you'd probably still have cash left over for an amp.

Technically all Gibsons outside of the custom shop (VOS line) are not so hot these days.

This is with regards to anything that comes out of the Gibson USA factory (studios, classics, standards) they are all subject to the same level of poor quality control. The studio is still the best value but you have to spend some time sorting through the lemons.
