How much do you think that i could get a decent Gibson Les Paul at an pawn or resale shop for?
depends on the quality/age/rarity of the guitar so i have no clue. Your best bet is to just go look and try to haggle them down to a price you can afford.
I was thinking nothng vintage or anything like that, just a good sounding Gibson Les Paul, anykind really
800 to a grand in usd. then setup so it plays well and sounds good like another 100
