hi guys,

i am looking to buy a new guitar, i have about 400eu (500 dollars), i mostly play blues or metal (i know a weird combination), i own a peavey valveking, an boss ds, an electro harmonix holy stain and a epiphone les paul standard.

i would like a good guitar for shredding (i would keep the les paul for my bluesy moments)

i have been looking at an epiphone korina flying v, is that a good choice? or will it sound exactly like my les paul?

or do you have any better sugestions?

thanks,
henis

Look into the LTD (like epiphone, but with ESP for those who don't know) 400 series. They literally make like 15 models of 'em. Most of them have EMG's, so you would definately want to keep your Les Paul.

EDIT: FR is short for Floyd Rose. They are whammy bars that can be pulled both ways. If you consider getting something with one, they can sometimes be a pain in the butt to mentain.

To suit shred?
